Chelsea FC boss Thomas Tuchel believes that there is no team who would want to face them in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Chelsea are into the final eight after seeing off Lille last night and according to the German, they are ready to face anyone in the round.

“I want us to be the team that nobody wants to play. That is the role we see ourselves in this round of the last eight.

“It’s a big step to do it again and again and again and that’s why we fight for the top four places in the toughest league may be in the world right now and we fight now in the last eight teams of the Champions League again.

“So this brings out the very best in us and we want to be the team that nobody wants to play against. Let’s see what happens,” he said after the game.

The Blues proceeded in the next round with a 4-1 aggregate despite Lille having threatened to overturn their 2-0 win in the first leg when Burak Yilmaz had opened the scoring on Wednesday night.

The club has been on the headlines in recent weeks due to their owner Roman Abramovic but they have ignored all the noise and did their talking on the pitch.
