Chelsea must forget Barcelona, focus on Huddersfield

Monday saw the west London club drawn against Primera Division leaders Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League, leaving open the very real possibility that the Blues will be competing for nothing more than England's domestic cups by the end of February.

Swiss Club FC Basel will face Manchester City and 2017 runners-up, Juventus will face Tottenham Hotspur.

Bayern Munich, who finished second to PSG in Group B, play Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk take on Roma. In the 12 matches they have played against each other Chelsea have won 4, Barcelona have won 3 and 5 matches have ended in draws.

"We will meet them in the last 16, which is a bit early, we could say". We will see how we arrive at the games. "We hope we will be strong because we are facing a strong team, an English team that runs and is very physical but also has very good players".

"It is a good tie, the factor of playing the first leg away can always help you a little", said Barca director Guillermo Amor.

"This is the biggest tie of the round". It's a attractive challenge for the club.

The Blues were the only English club not to progress to the last-16 as group winners and, now third in the Premier League, are struggling to find the consistency that took them to the league title previous year.

"I think we have to face the reality and will try to do our best".

Guillermo Amor, Barca's director of institutional relations, said: "We knew there was a high chance we could get Chelsea and so it was".

"It's going to be a great knockout tie".

"The Italian, who conceded that the league title was out of reach after the West Ham defeat, challenged his players to put things right at Huddersfield".
