Despite that barrage, Filipe Luis, another Chelsea old boy in the Atletico side, nearly put the Spaniards ahead against the run of play when his long-range shot cannoned back off a post to Koke, who should have done better than head straight at Courtois.

No English club can play another in the next round of the competition. As a result of these restrictions, the Blues would only be able to draw three teams in the round of 16 - Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Besiktas.

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.

United beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 and finish top of Group A, while Swiss champion Basel won 2-0 away at Benfica to join it in going through.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United were barely anxious by Basel, CSKA Moscow and a poor Benfica team that lost all six of their games.

Hugh Jackman for 'James Bond'? We wouldn't mind!
Daniel Craig was ultimately offered the role and, well, it seems like they decided to make him gritty after all. He added: "I was about to do X-Men 2, and a call came from my agent asking if I'd be interested in Bond ".


But no, seriously: now is the time to remind you that Griezmann's potential move to Old Trafford last summer always relied upon Man United reaching the Champions League, so it would follow that he views playing in Europe's biggest competition is a must. That means Chelsea can not draw Roma, Manchester United can not be drawn to play against Basel and Tottenham will not be up against their Group H opponents Real Madrid.

"We have to see". We should top the group but it's a good draw, Atletico are very strong. Don't forget, here the season is very tough.

Frank Lampard believes Chelsea have the chance to close ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City after securing their spot in the Champions League knockout stage. A physical, tight affair that either team could've won.

"It doesn't always mean that [it's easy] in the Premier League as we all know".
