The midfielder was coming onto the ball on his right foot but Kante got there before him.

This would make it easier for Chelsea when defending in a low block. Chelsea hit the woodwork twice, but were their own worst enemies in defence. The referee has a long think but eventually blows his whistle to award Chelsea a free-kick.

Spanish and Barcelona legend Carles Puyol has stated that Chelsea star Eden Hazard is not yet at the level of both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Barcelona and Chelsea face off at Camp Nou on Wednesday night for a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, locked at 1-1 from last month's first leg at Stamford Bridge.

"They were not comfortable in the first half and we just missed the chances".

Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes preview the return leg between Chelsea and Barcelona, and discuss whether the Blues can spring a surprise at the Camp Nou. "He made an assist for Dembele to score a goal".

"I hope my players also have the same excitement [as me]".

Chelsea are 5/1 to win tonight and 5/2 to go through while the draw is priced at 10/3. We are talking about an extraordinary player, the best in the world.

"When you leave the pitch you have the impression that you've ran [a lot], but that you haven't played a game of football", said Hazard as City recorded a Premier League record 902 passes and Chelsea failed to muster a single shot on goal. "We did this, but we made a mistake and paid heavily for it". Conceding a goal at home in their 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge might come back to hunt them.

Conte says he is aware that his players will be pushed to their limits: "We know very well the philosophy of Barcelona".

"When I speak about "suffer", I think every team must be prepared to suffer possession, because Barcelona like to try to dominate the game. With the ball you must then have in your head and your heart the feeling you will have the chance to score". "It will be a very hard game". It is down to the player. He has now scored 100 times in 123 games in this competition.

Chelsea are likely to be without defender David Luiz, who is recovering from an ankle injury, while Ross Barkley remains sidelined with a hamstring issue.
