Chelsea star admits 'dream' of playing for Real or Barca

Chelsea's Didier Drogba infamously labelled the game as a'f***ing disgrace live on television

In previous eight games, he has never scored and the curse could remain but for manager Antonio Conte, the past doesn't count much and he reckons it will be hard to stop Messi, who is in sublime form this season.

"I speak to some of them almost every day", Fabregas said of his friends at Barcelona, before adding: "Probably now, we speak less - maybe because of the game".

Chelsea winger, Willian has said that he "dreams of" playing for clubs like FC Barcelona after rumours linking the 29-year-old with a move to the Camp Nou (via The Express). "Of course, it's my hometown, it's the club I supported for all my life, but once you step on the pitch it just goes away". Though Conte started with Giroud against Hull, he is expected to continue with the Frenchman as he has combined well with the rest of the Chelsea attack and scored his first goal for the club as well.

Here are all the key details ahead of the big game. Regarding Bakayoko, many Blues supporters will be happy they don't have to watch the summer transfer window flop; probably.

He said: "On one hand you know this team is one of the best in the world - maybe they are favourites to win this competition". I think that, in this specific moment, it's very important to pick the players who are at the top of their form and then try and do our best to win the game.

Despite two convincing home wins in the last seven days, the pressure remains on Conte after an indifferent defence of the Premier League title his side won last season.

"We have worked and prepared well for this game". We have a plan in our heads.

"But we for sure will work together, work with the team, but not just to try to stop him: if we focus on just man-marking Messi, it can be very risky".

"We are talking about the best player in the world", added Conte.

Now, it may seem scarcely believable but it's actually Chelsea that hold the advantage in the head-to-head record between the two sides, winning four of the 12 games they've played, compared to Barca's three.

Lionel Messi, regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the game, has an abysmal record against Chelsea.

Tuesday's clash will mark the 13th time Barca have faced Chelsea in the Champions League, with the Premier League outfit holding the recent edge. "A team like Chelsea in every game must have the right pressure", said the Italian.
