Ross Barkley's penalty miss against Valencia is set to prove costly for Chelsea in the Champions League.

"There is certainly no reason to be too down beat now, but we need to win games."

"There are league games in the meantime, but we need a strong focus on those games to try to get a result in one of those two games before we make it really, really tough for ourselves.

Back at European football's top table following a season in the Europa League, the Blues have started poorly in the group stage thanks to a 1-0 loss at the hands of the La Liga outfit.

They could have salvaged a point but Barkley's spot-kick hit the bar meaning it's all to do for the 2012 winners if they are to still be in the competition after Christmas.

"In context, it's still one game done and it's still a group that I think teams will take points off each other because all the teams are strong and will fancy themselves.

With games against Lille and Ajax to come, Frank Lampard's side will still fancy their chances of progression, and prior to matchday one website FiveThirtyEight  backed the Blues to finish as runners-up to last season's semi-finalists.
