Jose Mourinho believes that the majority of the teams left in the Champions League will want to face "outsiders" Chelsea in the quarter-finals.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that the elite teams in the Champions League will want to draw the Blues in the quarter-finals because they are one of the "outsiders".

The West London outfit could face fellow Premier League side Manchester United, reigning champions Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain.

"I think maybe other teams want to draw us," BBC Sport quotes Mourinho as saying. "Why? Because Chelsea are maybe the most outsiders out of all the groups. Us and Manchester United.

"Who do I want to draw? There is nothing to choose. All of the big teams are there, sometimes you have an outsider or someone no-one expects to be there with less experience or potential, but that's not the case because we know what is waiting for us. All the big teams are there and we are happy to be in there."

The quarter-final draw will take place in Nyon, Switzerland from 11am this morning.
