Cesar Azpilicueta: 'Nobody is guaranteed a place'

Cesar Azpilicueta: 'Nobody is guaranteed a place'

Chelsea winger Willian has claimed that the club have to focus on the Premier League and domestic cups after their disappointment in the Champions League.

The logic behind the decision was that the Italian manager wanted Azpilicueta to be fresh against both Newcastle and Atletico Madrid. The result means Chelsea will end the group as runners-up.

The draw for the last 16 takes place next Tuesday.

Their form in the Turkish Süper Lig has been less impressive, with the side from Istanbul currently sitting in fourth spot after winning just half of their games thus far this season. "It's another step forward in broadcast innovation that will give BT Sport the best possible viewing experience and shows BT Sport continues its commitment to be at the heart of this", BT Sport COO Jamie Hindhaugh said in a statement. The opposition had no answer to his movement.

For the first time in UEFA Champions League history, there will be five English teams in the last 16 after Liverpool thrashed Spartak Moscow 7- nil to win Group E this morning. If it weren't for Hazard being utterly world class, they may have kept a clean sheet. Chelsea have the greatest probability (44%) of facing Barcelona, though, because Barcelona cannot be drawn against Juventus, who were in their group, Real Madrid or Sevilla.

Saul Niguez had Atletico on track for victory at Stamford Bridge before Stefan Savic turned the ball into his own net as the Spanish side finished third. He is exceptional and if he is fit, as he said, post-match, Chelsea can rival and beat any team.

It was no surprise Manchester City won Group F, earning 15 points along the way.

As such, the Blues will now get a more difficult draw in the next round of the competition.

The draw is on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland.

We're not saying English clubs and fans should not be excited and proud about the Premier League Champions League accomplishment, but it's worth keeping in mind how little has actually been accomplished so far. "As the club keeps growing, the goals become higher and the pressure also increases". "We wanted to finish first".
