Ross Barkley missed a late penalty as Frank Lampard lost 1-0 to Valencia on his Champions League debut as Chelsea manager.
Chelsea had the opportunity to cancel Rodrigo opener out and then occupying a point when the on-field official was alarmed by the Video Assistant Referee in the area to Daniel Wass‘ handball with three minutes remaining.
Barkley insisted he should choose the spot-kick, snatching the ball but his effort cannoned off the surface of the crossbar.
The late penalty controversy expects the first home victory of his tenure at Chelsea and compounded a introduction for Lampard, who lost Mason Mount just 16 minutes to Champions League soccer.
Fans and players came from disarray following the sacking of supervisor Marcelino week in London, but they were mutiny since they produced a display against Lampard side which featured four rival debutants.
Tammy Abraham was denied that a Champions League goal if Valencia goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen obstructed his near-post movie.
When former Arsenal midfielder Frances Coquelin left his claws on the inside of the shin of the youngster which compelled off the youngster inside 16 minutes and afforded just a yellow card mason Mount received a introduction to Europe.
Abraham went using a header in Willian run and Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross through the middle produced a shot which flew wide.
Willian, Chelsea danger in the first halffashioned a opener once he controlled Mateo Kovacic’s cross-field pass on his torso, but his shot flew . And the Brazilian’s fierce drive towards the near post was clear.
Marcos Alonso took the match to Valencia early in the second half, drilling in a free-kick which Cillessen tipped behind before going the subsequent corner.
But at the 74th minute, they fell behind, Rodrigo giving the Chelsea defence the slide as he raced onto Daniel Parejo’s cracked free-kick and swept the ball beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The drama reached fever pitch five minutes when the players of Chelsea appealed for a handball, and replays did really reveal the hand of protector Wass had hit at.
After an interminable VAR wait, a spot-kick was finally given however Barkley, on as a substitute took responsibility to wreck his campaign.
Chelsea director Frank Lampard:“Ross is your penalty taker. He scored a couple and was pre-season, was when he has started, and was today when he came on and he overlooked it. I don’t understand what the conversation was. Jorginho and Willian were the punishment takers about the pitch, but he becomes the penalty taker when Ross comes on.
„We probably deserved a win, or at least a draw. Enough was created by us . Therefore it is a brutal lesson in Champions League football not lots of chances but chances and clearly a penalty we concede from the 1 shot on goal. It is a game we played in, and we all lost.
The good news is we have got five games to go in the team, but that is the reality of dropping the very first game at home, it makes those [other] matches more significant particularly since they come back to back away from home“
Former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell informed The Debate:
„It is the exact same rigmarole as the Paul Pogba one – who is the designated taker? Barkley arrived following 80 minutes, so Jorginholooks taking fines and’s on and normally takes them. I can’t see him not needing to take one.
„I will see what Willian’s doing in terms of saying’Can this? You’ve just encounter‘. When Barkley says yes, he walks away but he’d gone once, twice, three times.
