He told BT Sport: "Their goalkeeper (Jan Oblak) was on fire".

Five English teams qualified for the Champions League group stage, and all five have made it through their respective groups.

The Europa League Round of 32 draw will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyom at 12pm GMT on December 11 with the resulting ties to be played in principle on 15 and 22 February.

"It's part of football".

"This can be a new challenge. We can do anything".

Group winners are drawn against second place sides and play away first, with the second legs at home.

Eden Hazard has claimed that Chelsea are not fazed by the prospect of facing Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 stage of the Champions League. We created many chances to score. The hope for Liverpool fans must be that he sticks around for the knockout stage, with Barcelona still hovering. In only his third club appearance of the season, Cillessen did exactly that with a brilliant point-blank save from Sporting's Bas Dost at Nou Camp - just moments after Paco Alcacer had given Barca the lead. We've managed to get more points from the team which finished top of the group than the team which finished bottom. We are a top team too.

Chelsea 's 1-1 home draw with Atletico Madrid proved costly as Roma took advantage to top Group C.

Again Morata went close to the opener when he stretched to meet Victor Moses' cross, but Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak spread himself to block the Spaniard's close-range effort. The only goal in that game was scored by Diego Perotti in the 53rd minute.

The goal fest was not yet complete, though, as Radamel Falcao gave the French champions a second and Porto's Tiquinho Soares added a late fifth goal. They were very solid in the first half without being spectacular. Who's to say that they can't keep up this momentum and keep winning games.

That in itself is a record: 306 goals over the 96 group-stage games comfortably beats the previous best, meaning the tournament is currently averaging a staggering 3.1 goals a game.
