A victory for the Blues would have seen them top C group but the West London giants now face a horror last-16 draw that could see them face Lionel Messi's Barcelona or Neymar's Paris Saint-Germain.

Lampard told BT Sport: "He sleeps. His concentration goes and at this level if you sleep for a second and it's an easy goal for Atletico.

"A moment's sleeping today doesn't work so he needs to improve but he's [Antonio Conte] got options. [Danny] Drinkwater will play as well but hopefully Bakayoko will improve."

He said: "Obviously PSG, we're all talking about them and Barcelona, we all know what they have to offer.

"Chelsea fans will realistically look at Besiktas but it's a draw so who knows and again who knows where all these different teams are.
