"I think it is beneficial overall".

Lampard added that his players need to use the loss as "positive effect".

Well.I guess he was right.although probably more right than he would have liked.

The Blues capitulated at home, they were carved open time and again.

Barca have also roared back to form in recent weeks. In short - no, definitely not.

"We have nothing to lose and we're going to play our game with more". Bayern Munich continues to dominate Bundesliga but has not made it past the semifinal round in Champions League while the Gunners have yet to return to Europe's top club competition.

Lampard has preferred to use Willy Caballero in goal in the last three matches over Kepa Arrizabalaga and is unlikely to change that up against Bayern Munich. They infamously defeated Bayern in their own back yard in their penultimate competitive meeting (barring the UEFA Super Cup).

Marine George Hood broke the Guinness world record for plank holds after 8 hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds, reclaiming his title. Hood says his next goal is to break the record for most push-ups completed in one hour, which now sits at 2,806.

Manchester United moved onto the shoulder of fourth-placed Chelsea on Sunday after brushing aside lowly Watford as Wolves and Arsenal also staked their claims for Champions League football next season.

His only goal on Italian soil in the Champions League knockout stages was in the 2009 final against Manchester United at Rome's Stadio Olimpico - he has failed to find the net (or deliver an assist) in each of his subsequent five appearances. "They need to use it to positive effect", Lampard said.

After the game, the travelling contingent of Bayern fans at Stamford Bridge sang Davies" praises, chanting "Fonzi, Fonzi, Fonzi' as the young lad couldn't help but smile at the outburst of affection.

A central group of ever-reliable players was sorely missed on Tuesday night.

Chelsea welcome German giants Bayern Munich to Stamford Bridge tonight, and Frank Lampard's men will be in a buoyant mood after their dominant performance against Tottenham Hotspur.

Key Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal - who deputized in attack amid a shortage of forwards for Barcelona - was sent off in the final minutes after picking up two quick yellow cards, first for a hard foul on Insigne then for physical contact with Mario Rui after play had stopped. You wouldn't catch the man in the dugout doing that.

"When you win the ball back, after having run a lot against a team who has retained considerable possession, it is always hard to be lucid to play properly and with a lot of personality". The visitors went closest to striking before the break when Thomas Müller's header clattered back off the bar though Chelsea offered a sporadic threat with Marcos Alonso testing Manuel Neuer with a low drive.
