John Obi Mikel believes UEFA should overturn suspensions on the "devastated" Chelsea quartet that will miss the Champions League final.
The Blues somehow overcame John Terry's first-half sending off at the Nou Camp to progress to the Munich finale at the expense of Barca. The Chelsea captain kneed Alexis Sanchez from behind and will miss the final against Real Madrid or Bayern Munich as a result, and will be joined on the sidelines by Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles.
The trio incurred a one-match ban after collecting bookings and Mikel is frustrated by the current system. Asked if he felt his team-mates have been robbed of their dream, the Nigeria international said: "Yes, the yellow cards should be cancelled going into a final and UEFA should look into that."
