Regular readers of the website would have seen that I predicted the final four in the Champions League including Barcelona. Now they have been knocked out I wanted to know the opinion of as many Chelsea fans as possible on who YOU want us to be drawn against tomorrow morning?
The fact that Barcelona are out makes a huge difference for me personally. Now, Atletico Madrid is the side I would like to be drawn against as I believe we can beat them over the two games leaving Bayern Munich facing Real Madrid.
Yesterday, I stated that Chelsea would be drawn against Real Madrid as I believe it would be fate after the manager left the club to come home last summer.
I also stated that Bayern Munich and Pep Guardiola would beat United and be drawn to face his old side at the Nou Camp because of fate once again. As we know, Barcelona are no longer in the competition.
So where does that leave Chelsea against the other three sides in the draw? Some have already labelled us as outside favourites at 5-1 which is a fantastic bet if you ask me. Do you believe the bookies and think we are the outsiders for this or do you think we can go on and win it?
At this stage you should fear no one and if anything, I believe all three sides would be looking at Chelsea and would want to avoid us.
Andre Schurrle has given an interview and revealed that Chelsea can beat anyone in the competition and said:
"We can win against every team. If you have John Terry, Frank Lampard on the pitch, they've seen everything in football. And it gives you a good feeling because they know what to do.
There's something in this team, it's hard to describe, but it's amazing. I've never played in a team like that before. I came here to be involved in games like this and to be with a team who have what it takes to go through."
Personally, over two games, I believe Chelsea can get the job done against whoever we draw. I do not believe that Real Madrid's back four is water tight and we have seen against Arsenal AND Manchester United that Bayern Munich's isn't either.
We owe Atletico big time for the UEFA Super Cup two seasons ago and that's the draw I want.
Who out of the three do you want Chelsea to be drawn against?
