Chelsea will have the chance to gain revenge after they drew Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League for the third straight season today.

The French giants eliminated the Blues on away goals at the same stage last year, although the reigning Premier League champions did get the better of them in 2013/14 thanks to a late Demba Ba goal.

Chelsea were able to grab top spot in Group G having lost just once, in stark contrast to their Premier League form this season where they've won just four of their 15 games so far.

Jose Mourinho's men could have been drawn against PSV Eindhoven, Benfica, Juventus, Roma or Gent - however they now face a tough tie against Ligue 1's runaway leaders once more.

The first leg will take place in Paris on February 16, with the return leg getting underway at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, March 9.

The news this morning was of course met with a mixture of surprise, delight and a small amount of dejection by Chelsea fans given that Laurent Blanc's side are unbeaten in their last 18 games with 17 points separating them from the rest of France's top division.

Indeed, you can split the Chelsea fan reaction into a couple of different sections. The first group were defiant:

The next, are a bit more realistic.

The final group....well, this is Twitter; there's always bound to be a few 'mavericks'.
