"I am happy with the draw in the fact that we analysed straightaway the teams we are playing against," Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said about Group E and facing Sevilla.

"We are very aware that every Champions League group is very tough. So I know a lot of the reaction afterwards was what a great draw it is for Chelsea but we can’t approach it with that mindset at all.
"They are very tough games, all the teams that we play, especially when you are travelling in Europe you always know you are going to get very competitive games," he added.
"Sevilla won the Europa League last season and both of the other teams are emerging teams that will cause us a lot of threats and dangers, so let’s see."

However, Los Palanganas are undefeated in their three away matches in the competition having recorded two draws and one win.
