Chelsea will face Europa League winners Sevilla, Krasnodar and debutants Rennes in the group stages of the Champions League.
Frank Lampard admits he was ‘happy’ with the outcome of the draw but has warned his players against complacency ahead of their first Champions League match against Sevilla on October 20.
‘I am happy with the draw in the fact that we analysed straightaway the teams we are playing against,’ Lampard told Chelsea’s official website.
‘We are very aware that every Champions League group is very tough.
‘So I know a lot of the reaction afterwards was what a great draw it is for Chelsea but we can’t approach it with that mindset at all.
‘They are very tough games, all the teams that we play, especially when you are travelling in Europe you always know you are going to get very competitive games.
‘Sevilla won the Europa League last year, and both of the other teams are emerging teams that will cause us a lot of threats and dangers, so let’s see.’
