The match against Dynamo Kiev at the Bridge would have ended in a 1-1 draw again and Chelsea fans would again haveg one home sad asking if they will ever know the true feeling of winning again and when?

In other matches we’ve had good periods and played well, but when the negative moment arrived the team felt it too much and it was difficult to emerge again.
‘Today it was perfect because we conceded a goal with 15 minutes to go and the team emerged. They knew a draw would be acceptable but they wanted to win.
