Jose Mourinho ahead of Champions League draw: We don't fear anybody


Jose Mourinho says Chelsea should fear no opposition ahead of Monday's Last 16 draw.

The Blues eased past Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday night as they confirmed their superiority in Group G and the Portuguese insists the Champions League is one of the main targets for the club this season.

"We don't fear anybody, but we know there are very good, strong teams in this competition," Mourinho said.

"Last year we were close and we didn't have the team playing at such a high level as we do this season, so we can dream we will do it.

"But let's see if the sharks let us, because there are a few sharks in the ocean.

"I don't think any of the big teams are out of the Champions League now; maybe Liverpool.

"But all the teams that want to win the competition, they're all in the competition.

"Season after season you repeat this, normally everyone is in the last 16. The Champions League starts now."

Chelsea will be joined by Arsenal and Manchester City in the next round and Mourinho says it's always good news when English teams progress in the competition.

"I work in England. I want the prestige of English football and I hope they [Arsenal and Manchester City] do well," Mourinho added.

"We have also Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton in the Europa League, so I wish them good too.

"At the same time it's good for us that our direct opponents in the Premier League are involved in European competitions.

"Manchester United are not. They have the same advantage that Liverpool had last season in terms of the Premier League, a big advantage."
