Chelsea lurched to a 3-1 defeat on Tuesday night to leave them in real danger of crashing out of the Champions League against Napoli.

Andre Villas-Boas' Blues produced more poor defending to throw away yet another lead to deservedly lose their last-16 first leg, with an Ezequiel Lavezzi brace sandwiching a controversial Edinson Cavani goal.

Juan Mata had given Chelsea the lead with what they will be desperately hoping proves a vital away goal.
