While Manchester United's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow in Group A confirmed top spot for Jose Mourinho's men, Chelsea's 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday proved costly.

Chelsea drew 1-1 with Spanish side Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

But, with Roma beating Qarabag in the Italian capital, Chelsea could not find the second goal and the victory needed to regain the lead in Group C.

Conte says Chelsea fear no-one in Europe's elite club competition, but reckons the strength in depth of the domestic league makes winning the European Cup hard for English clubs.

"We are Chelsea, we are a big team like them".

Chelsea had dominated against Atletico until the opening goal, with Alvaro Morata going close and Hazard nearly weaving through the visiting defence. But instead, they found themselves behind in the 56th minute when Saul Niguez shot the visitors in front.
