Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas believes Chelsea can pull off a shock in the first leg of our round of 16 Champions League tie against Barcelona.

Jenas is favouring the Blues can hold their own against arguably the most formidable team in the world.

Barcelona have won just one of six away games against Chelsea in the Champions League

The underdog tag has favoured the champions in the past against Barcelona. When speaking for Unibet, Jenas couldn’t see any reason why Chelsea can’t get the better of the Spanish side this time round.

“On their day, at Stamford Bridge, they can cause a lot of problems for anyone.

“If they can just pull it all together on the night then I can see them at least keeping the tie open.”

It’s not often Jenas backs Chelsea in many games, especially one of this magnitude.

The Englishman is right in saying we can cause an upset. However, the players must perform on the night and Antonio Conte needs to get his tactics spot on for Monday night.
