“It was a very tactical game which Chelsea did very well,” Amuneke told CSN.

“Collectively they did very well, not conceding possession to Barca whose strength is to hold possession to punish teams.

“The game will be open, and if Chelsea deploy the same tactic going with a false 9, they may exploit spaces left behind.
