Reaction: Eden Hazard sends brilliant warning after 1-1 draw against Atletico

CHELSEA forward Eden Hazard believes his side deserved to beat Atletico Madrid tonight.

Chelsea finished second in Champions League Group C after rallying to draw 1-1 with Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues, already through, needed a win to secure top spot but fell behind to Saul Niguez’s header as Atletico sought the victory they needed to have any chance of progressing.

Hazard’s run forced Stefan Savic to turn the ball into his own net as Chelsea claimed a draw which saw them finish behind Roma, who beat Qarabag 1-0 tonight.

The Premier League champions had a number of golden opportunities to clinch all three points late on but could not beat Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

Chelsea could now face the likes of Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the next round.

And while Hazard was disappointed not to finish top of their group, the Belgian insists his side can beat any club on their day.

Hazard told BT Sport after the game: “Their goalkeeper was on fire. We should top the group but it’s a good draw, Atletico are very strong. We are happy.

“It’s not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea. We are a top team too. We can do anything.”
