And Guardiola, whose side knocked Manchester United out of the competition in the quarter-finals, says that Jose Mourinho’s side will pose a threat to any team.

“Chelsea have a manager with a lot of experience,” said Guardiola.

“They are an English team with many qualities and experienced players like Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry and Frank Lampard.”

Chelsea booked their place in the last four after a 2-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain at Stamford Bridge sent them through on away goals.
