Chelsea booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 2-1 away win over Lille in the second leg of their last-16 tie at Stade Pierre-Mauroy to secure a 4-1 aggregate win.
The Blues took a 2-0 first-leg lead to France but, they had to come from behind after a slow start to earn success in the return.
Burak Yilmaz pulled Lille back into the tie with a penalty after Jorginho handled, only for Christian Pulisic to reply in first-half injury time.
Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta then put the last-16 encounter beyond the French champions when he finished at the back post with 19 minutes remaining.
The Blues’ coach Thomas Tuchel said: “I want us to be the team nobody wants to play.
“That’s the role we see ourselves in this last round of eight.
“It’s a big step to do it again and again – and that is why we fight for top-four places in maybe the toughest league in the world and we fight now again in the top eight teams [in Europe].
“This brings out the very best in us.”
Cheslea will find out their last-eight opponents in Friday’s draw.
