Brentford midfielder Christian Norgaard believes they deserved at least a draw against Chelsea on Saturday.

According to Norgaard, they conceded against Chelsea because they switched off and were the better team in the second half.

Norgaard said: “In the first half they were the better team and for the situation for the goal we switched off and they have the class.

“In the second half we were the better team and had the better chances. We kept them in their half and we were more composed as well.

“Our set pieces were very dangerous and as a promoted team that’s one of the areas we have to do well against one of the best teams in Europe.

“It is very small margins that we didn’t get the equaliser. I found myself in the box and few times and the overhead kick would have been the icing on the cake but it was a great save by the keeper.

“It [the performance] gives us the confidence that we can go toe to toe against these teams.”
