Chelsea head into the second leg of their Champions Legaue last-16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain with all to play for after a tight 2-1 defeat in Paris.

John Obi Mikel scored a vital away goal for Chelsea as Paris St Germain inflicted the first defeat of Guus Hiddink's second spell in charge at Parc des Princes.

Mikel made amends for conceding a free-kick from which Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored to put PSG 1-0 up in the Champions League last-16 first leg.

The striker's shot deflected off Mikel, who equalised from close range for a rare goal, before substitute Edinson Cavani struck to earn PSG a 2-1 win and end Hiddink's 11-match unbeaten run.

It was Chelsea's first loss since the December defeat at Leicester which marked the end of Jose Mourinho's tenure, yet defenders Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic were upbeat as they spoke to BT Sport:

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was full of praise for Chelsea's efforts, as they gave themselves real chance of making progress in the second leg at Stamdord Bridge.

Chelsea will be hopeful of having captain John Terry back for the second leg of the tie, with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge enough to seal their passage to the Champions League quarter-finals.
