Frank Lampard is convinced Chelsea have the beating of Barcelona if they reproduce the display that saw them thrash Tottenham 5-1 to reach the FA Cup final.

The Blues finally delivered a performance to give Barca cause for concern on Sunday night, three days before the teams meet in a mouthwatering Champions League semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea's chances against the all-conquering Spanish and European champions were written off the moment the draw was made but Lampard said: "From the start of every game, it's 50-50. Barcelona are favourites because of the players they have in their team but if we play like we did against Spurs in the two games then we will have a chance."
