Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen believes his side deserved more from their Carabo Cup semi-final first leg defeat against Spurs.
It’s advantage Tottenham after a tight match at Wembley saw the home side take an aggregate lead. The result was marred in controversy after VAR awarded a penalty against Chelsea ‘keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, even though it appeared Harry Kane was in an offside position.
Danish youngster Christensen admitted afterward that the result was hard to take.
‘It was a tough result,’ The Danish defender told chelseafc.com.
‘I felt as though, especially in the second half, we had a good spell in the game.
‘We played good and had chances, and we probably feel as though we should have at least got a draw from it.’
‘I think it was a difficult one because when the flag goes up you think it’s offside, but at the same time they said to us they had to check it, because if it wasn’t offside then it was a penalty, so it was a difficult one,’
‘It was shown to be offside having seen it now but we can’t do anything about it.’
With Chelsea twice hitting the post and Christensen himself missing a huge chance to equalize, they will hope that they are not left to rue their first leg opportunities as they gear up for the return fixture at Stamford Bridge.
