Chelsea boss Frank Lampard described the game against Valencia as a game Chelsea mustn’t lose in the build-up to the match and the Blues held on to secure a 2-2 draw at Valencia.

The result leaves Chelsea needing to beat Lille at home next month to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes Chelsea could have beaten Valencia if we had converted our chances but he also admitted Valencia created a lot of chances against Chelsea.

Speaking to BT Sport, Lampard said: “We missed a lot as well.

“That’s something we’re doing a lot of at the minute – not putting our chances away.

“But we can’t turn away from fact they had a lot of chances. They were arriving in our box too much.

“Credit to the players for their work-rate and hanging on in there, but sometimes you have to be more secure than that.”
