Chelsea will be hoping the join fellow Premier League sides, Liverpool and Manchester City, in the quarter finals of UEFA Champions League 2017/18.
To do so, they have to see off Barcelona in the second leg of the last-16 at the Nou Camp tonight.

Willian twice struck the woodwork, as Chelsea made it eight games without defeat against their Catalan opponents.
This is their third round of 16 tie, with Barcelona bidding to reach the quarter-finals for a record-extending 11th year in a row.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have progressed beyond the round of 16 only once in the last five seasons
