Chelsea were defeated 1-0 by Valencia in our Champions League opener on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge.

Ross Barkley missed a late penalty as Valencia held on to win.

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has admitted it’s hard to accept the defeat to Valencia because Chelsea were the better side.

“All the teams are big teams so they’re all tough games and that’s why it’s important that we get the points at home and then try to compete away,” said Christensen.

“All the games are important for us and we have to win them, so from now on we have to get into a rhythm and get the results we need.

“We had a great game at the weekend against Wolves and we tried to build on that, and for the majority of the game we played quite well so that is why it’s so hard to accept that we lost.

“It was a game we felt we needed to win and we wanted to show our fans what we can do at home, especially in the Champions League. It is tough but that is what it is all about.”
