LONDON -- There were seven minutes left of Chelsea's Champions League round-of-16 first leg against Barcelona when Alvaro Morata trotted onto the pitch as a late replacement for Pedro.

Chelsea's £58 million club record signing did not do much of note during his brief cameo, but he was on the pitch at least, even if his fleeting appearances are becoming a theme for Antonio Conte's team.

Morata has had his injury problems in recent weeks, and he has also had to overcome the personal tragedy...

Gary Lineker and sons meet Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez

With Barcelona in town to play Chelsea in the Champions League, Gary Lineker seized the opportunity to pay his old team a visit at their hotel in London.

Lineker, who scored 42 goals in 102 games during his stint in Catalonia, met with several members of the current squad, including Luis Suarez and the one and only Lionel Messi.

Who will replace Philippe Coutinho for Barcelona in the Champions League?

Catch up on all the stats and storylines you need to know about ahead of one of the biggest ties of the round of 16 in the Champions League.

BARCELONA -- Albert "Chapi" Ferrer could consider himself a trendsetter. He became the first Spaniard to ever play for Chelsea in 1998, having been part of Johan Cruyff's Dream Team at Barcelona, and was just the second player to turn out for both the Blues and Barca (after Mark Hughes.)

Since Ferrer, another 11 Spanish players have gone on to play for the Premier League champions and the total number of players to have played for both Chelsea and Barca is now up to 13.
