Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic says they've proved their class in the last two years in Europe.

Champions League winners in 2012, Chelsea won the Europa League last season.

Ivanovic said: "Our quality is shown by the fact we're always on top come the end of a season.

"We did it in the Champions League two years ago and again in the Europa League. The ambitions at Chelsea are always the same - to win trophies.

"This year is a new beginning with a new manager. We have a big enough squad to cope. There are guys just waiting for a chance to play."
