Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves feels ‘sorry’ for Chelsea after they were on Monday drawn to face Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16.

According to Hargreaves, the Blues have the worst draw of the English sides in the competition.

He said the game will be difficult for Antonio Conte’s men to win but expressed hopes that the Italian will bring his a-game to bear in the encounter.

“I feel sorry for Chelsea fans obviously [because of] Barcelona, that’s the difficult one,” he told BT Sport.

“For Chelsea, it’s really tough, but Conte is the one manager that, with the defensive tactics that he has, could find a way to get a result against Barcelona.

“For Tottenham obviously it’s difficult. But I think if you’re Manchester United you’re very happy, [and] Liverpool. Manchester City will be the happiest of everyone. Basel, that’s a brilliant draw for them.”

The first legs will be played on Tuesday, February 13 and Wednesday 14, with the remaining teams playing their first ties the following week.
