Christensen insists Chelsea will make it 'tough' for Bayern Munich

Andreas Christensen insists Chelsea will make it tough for Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

The Blues welcome Hans Flick's side to Stamford Bridge for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Speaking after Saturday's win over Spurs, the Dane said: 'The win was so important because we've opened up a little bit of a gap again. We want to be up there, pushing up towards third place and beyond and that's our goal.

"It's a good win for us and sets us up nicely ahead of a big game on Tuesday against Bayern Munich.

"It's an exciting game for us, a tough game of course, but one we are looking forward to. I spent two years in Germany at Borussia Monchengladbach, so I know all about Bayern and just how tough they can be. Yet at the same time we are a good team and it will be tough for Bayern."
