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.

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
