Chelsea chief Peter Kenyon admits they're desperate to end their Champions League drought.

The Blues have drawn Valencia, Rosenborg and Schalke in their group and Kenyon admits winning the trophy this season is a priority.

"The big difference for us this year is we're seeded. We've been in two semi-finals in the last four years and got through the group stages every year," he said.

"It's the elusive competition for us really but there's a determination and that is fuelled by a squad we believe we've strengthened."

Kenyon added on Sky Sports News: "It's not frustrating at all (to have missed out on a place in the final) but there's a huge expectation within Chelsea to get to the next stage.

"We've had our share of semis, so obviously the next stage is to get to the final.

"This is clearly a big ambition for us and one we'd like to pull off."
