We're Ready For PSG, Barca - Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte believes his Chelsea side deserved to win their  their final group game against Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea were forced to a 1 - 1 draw  at Stamford Bridge thereby losing top spot in  Group C to As Roma who finished with a superior head to head over Chelsea despite the sides being tied on 11 points apiece.

"It was a good game. I think we deserved a win, when you create so many chances , some important chances, you should win," Conte told BT Sports.

"We went 1-0 down but we tried to win, we must be pleased as it was a really tough group.

"We tried to play our game and win. In the first half we tried to push, we created many chances to score and we conceded a goal from a corner.

"When you play this way and create so much you must be satisfied. Our opponent won't be happy to play against us.

"Atletico in the past played a fantastic Champions League."

On Atlectico Madrid's keeper Jan Oblak, the Italian said: "The goalkeeper was the best player for them and in other circumstance we could be  more accurate to finish."

Oblak made eight outstanding saves to keep Chelsea forwards Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata out during the encounter.

Antonio Conte however stated that his side will be ready to take on any team in the knockout stages despite finishing second in Group C.

Should Liverpool win their group, Chelsea would face Besiktas, Barcelona or Paris Saint-German in the next round.

"When you play this competition and you go through you must be ready to face the best teams.

"We can play against PSG, Barcelona or Basiktas, you have to be ready. It is a fantastic competion, the best, and you have to be ready for everthing."
