Chelsea got our Champions League campaign up and running as we beat Lille 2-1 on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Willian.

Lille boss Christophe Galtier believes his team lost to Chelsea because they weren’t clinical enough.

Speaking after the game, Galtier said, according to “We’re frustrated.

“We equalized at the right time. I’d tried to strengthen the midfield to win the ball back higher up the pitch, but it didn’t really work and then we conceded a goal of real quality.

“It’s a tough learning curve, and we need to work harder to improve.”

He added: “There are regrets, but that’s what happens in the Champions League.

“The second goal is a regret, and we had some good opportunities.

“Sometimes their goalkeeper did a good job, and perhaps we weren’t clinical enough.”
