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