Kante wants courageous Chelsea as Champions League draw looms

N'Golo Kante wants Chelsea to believe they can achieve "something big" in the Champions League this season.

As runners-up in Group H, the Blues could face big clubs like Barcelona, Juventus, PSG and Bayern Munich in the round of 16.

And Kante wants his teammates to be brave and confident for the February tie.

"It was always our target to do well in the Champions League," Kante said. "We knew that today was a big game for us and it would have a big influence on the rest of our season so to continue in this competition is a big target for us.

"For the young players, for all the team and for the club, to play against the big teams and try our best is a big chance for us. We need to believe that we can achieve something great, work for that and do our best."
