​Chelsea midfielder Drinkwater reveals Messi shirt plans

Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is hoping that he will get a chance to ask for Lionel Messi's shirt when the two meet in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Barcelona are the opponents Chelsea must beat if they want to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and Drinkwater is already excited about the clash.

He also has words ready for Lionel Messi. He was asked if he's excited about the game.

"Yeah, I am, yeah. I don't think I've actually played at the Nou Camp before," he said.

"I played against Barcelona in pre-season a year ago but the Nou Camp will be a new experience for me, so yeah I'm looking forward to it.

"I was buzzing the first time I played him [Messi] so I don't know what I'll be like the second time. I'll have to get his shirt.

"You can't read what he's doing. He's rapid with the ball, and his change in directions are almost non-existent."
