Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Valencia in our opening Champions League game, and the Blues now face an uphill task qualifying from the group and also qualifying as group leaders.

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has revealed that his side were expecting a positive result against Valencia especially after being the better side at the Bridge on Tuesday night.

Looking forward, the Chelsea centre-back has decided focus on our upcoming game against Liverpool, as the Blues host the league leaders at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“We were looking forward to having a great start to the [Champions League] campaign,” said Christensen as he looked back on the 1-0 defeat.

“We felt we were on top for most of the game. Valencia had some spells but we knew that was going to happen and we were ready for it. We kept working. Our work ethic was good all game and it felt we controlled most of it which is why it is tough to accept the goal against and the result in the end.

“We are not happy to let goals in from those situations and we know it can be costly, but now we look forward to the next game.”

Christensen also revealed that the only way out of the group is to win all our remaining games.

Christensen said: “Right now all the games are important for us and we have to win them, so from now on we have to get a rhythm and get the results we need.

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