Chelsea have been drawn in Champions League group C along with Atletico Madrid, AS Roma and FC Qarabag. I am asking the question whether you believe it to be a tricky group to get through or OK? 

As we have seen throughout the years the Champions League draw could throw up all sorts of permutations and banana-skins when the group stages are drawn. It was clear that before the draw was made that we had to avoid Barcelona, PSG and Napoli who all finished second in their individual leagues last season.

We did exactly that and drew Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid which gives us all a battle of two tactical geniuses in Antonio Conte and Simeone and I cannot wait. I am not too bothered at all about having to face them because of Conte and our formation. We will not let ourselves get caught out as we had done previously against them a couple of seasons ago.

AS Roma are not the same attacking threat as they used to be with Mo Salah now at Liverpool and Totti has retired. Let's also not forget that we have taken Toni Rudiger off of them also which will weaken them as the new replacements need time to settle down.

As for Qarabag? If we drop points against them in either game then we do not deserve to be in the competition and it's as simple as that:

With the top two going through, it should be Chelsea and Atletico going through but in order to do so, we MUST do our job for ninety minutes in every game which is what our manager demands without fail.

As for the other English clubs in the draw, lucky Liverpool and United with City struggling and Tottenham being handed a nightmare group!

I think we will be OK. What about you?
