Messi's goal'll give Barca more space - Suarez

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho plays down pressure on Paul Pogba as midfielder returns

Conte had asked Eden Hazard to play as a false number nine against Barcelona, a role in which the Belgian has impressed at times but found hard against top sides, before switching Hazard to the left upon the introduction of Álvaro Morata late on.

We have to play a flawless game, we know we are playing against very good players in a tough stadium but we are confident and we will try to qualify.

Barca appeared to have restored order early in the second period, but failed to learn their lesson of Willian's danger from the edge of the box.A short corner was worked into the Brazilian's path and he arrowed a low shot past the rooted Ter Stegen. Fully recovered, he's now scored three goals in his last two starts and was very unlucky to not get more than just the one against Barcelona. When you are a player, you can make a lot of mistakes in your career. Club captain Michael Carrick is on standby to fill a third midfield role, although Scott McTominay's performance in restraining Ever Banega in midweek may win him a starting shirt once more as the Portuguese looks to put a leash on Chelsea's more creative players.

Manager Antonio Conte defended the 21-year-old Dane though.

"They show tonight to be a strong, fantastic team", said Conte. "An incredible performance", Conte told reporters.

"Willian has the potential to play this type of game in any game".

Willian's goal wasn't enough to give Chelsea an advantage going into the second leg.

Willian was in the team that scored a big 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid in the group stage and reckons Chelsea can spring a similar surprise at the Nou Camp.

That was the case in their latest outing against Barcelona, with Hazard deployed down the middle, despite Chelsea having Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud on the bench.

Below are pictures showing Chelsea's Fabregas and Messi catching up on old times, with former EPL player, Luis Suarez joining.

"It is totally different to play in the Premier League to the Champions League".

"For us he is the best player in the world. I don't want to come back and speak about the past because I think it's not important, not interesting for us".

Only Liverpool (4) have done the league double over Man Utd more times in Premier League history than Chelsea (3 - level with Man City and Arsenal).

"We have to stay compact and use the same plan we used against Barcelona".
