Chelsea finished their Champions League group stage with a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid.

But Blues boss Antonio Conte left Azpilicueta out of the starting line-up against Swansea City to the surprise of many supporters.

Maybe the arrivial of Costa and Vitolo in January will revamp their fortunes!

The Blues' star has claimed that his team are desperate to face off against any other side, apart from these two giants.

Zidane's presence at Madrid is said to play a huge part in Hazard's interest in moving to the Bernabeu but the winger's joked the Frenchman could move to Stamford Bridge to fulfill his wish of playing under him.

They were defensively great, controlled the midfield battle and had every Chelsea defender in knots whenever they attacked.

'I'm here for now, I'm trying to finish the year as best I can. "We reached the next round and we must be happy with this".

"It was a nice run".

"So let's hope they draw Besiktas on Monday and they don't have to worry about it, we'll see".

Sporting still have the chance of reaching the next phase of the competition, but need to win and for Juventus to fail to beat Olympiakos in their game.

He told BT Sport: "Their goalkeeper (Jan Oblak) was on fire". We won't look for excuses and take responsibility. "We are a team. We can do anything". Who's to say that they can't keep up this momentum and keep winning games.

"When I feel the desire to leave, I'll leave". There's a nice balance in their team. I didn't find it hard at all. "If I've got a team that's topped the group, I'd be thinking, 'Ah, we could draw Chelsea'".

Atletico manager Diego Simeone, meanwhile, did have regrets about their campaign.

"Chelsea is an amazing place to play and the Premier League is not that easy to come to".
