Chelsea left everyone nervous before seeing out a 2-1 win over Lille at Stamford Bridge to progress to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The Blues dominated the majority of the game but failed to add to their two-goal lead in the first half and then endured a nervy finish after Lille pulled a goal back through Loic Remy.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is frustrated with his team's inability to kill off games: "I am a bit tired of saying that. It has been the story of our season at times. We controlled today for sure. The first half was good, the first 20 minutes of the second was good, but we need to take more of our chances, that is the fact. You leave teams in the game, they probably had two shots at the back-end of the game, and we conceded. That is the frustrating thing in what was a very good performance.

Valencia was a bit tough as well. I felt because it was so comfortable I was aware of the Valencia score and that 2-0 is a dangerous result if you are scared of drawing it, because if you concede the goal then we all know what happens. So I was angry with the fact that at half-time I asked for a push from the lads, and they gave us that. I can never doubt that the boys give us everything, but the reality is that we need to be better in their box, we need t take more chances either in the Premier League or the Champions League.”

Chelsea will be hoping for a more comfortable victory when they host Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
