Atletico Madrid's Champions League exit is no failure: Coach Diego Simeone

PSG? Barca? Hazard not afraid of any Champions League opponent for Chelsea

"It's not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea", said the attacker.

The fact that they can not play Real Madrid again in the next round probably gives them the most favourable list of potential opponents. I think a failure is when you have an objective and you don't reach it, and we knew this could happen, so it is not a failure for us.

Eden Hazard says Chelsea do not fear facing Paris St Germain or Barcelona in the Champions League last 16 after his side were held to a draw by Atletico Madrid and missed out on top spot in their group.

Group runners-up: Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea, Sevilla, Shakhtar, Porto, Basel. The number of English sides finishing at the top of their group, means that Chelsea only have a few options when it comes round to the draw.

It is also not possible for teams from the same country to be drawn against each other in this round. Not only have they topped a group containing Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, they beat the latter 3-1 at Wembley in what will surely go down as one of their most famous outings in Europe.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has played down talk of Antoine Griezmann moving to Manchester United following his side's exit from the Champions League group stages.

Tottenham: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli, Porto or RB Leipzig.

Chelsea were already through to the knockout stages, but blew their chance to finish in first place and in theory earn an easier draw.

With the likes of Marco Reus, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mario Gotze in their ranks, even an out-of-form Dortmund will be a team Arsenal will want to avoid in the early stages of the Europa League knockout rounds.

The draw for the round of 16 takes place at UEFA's headquarters in Nyom in Switzerland on Monday.
