The Blues were awarded a penalty in the 87th minute after VAR check which would have given Chelsea a point from their opening Champions League game of the season upon conversion.

At that point, visitors Valencia were leading 1-0 as a result of the strike from Rodrigo on 74 minutes.

Before Ross Barkley took the penalty, the visibly annoyed Willian stopped to pull his socks up in front of the England international.

In the end, Ross Barkley missed that penalty as he struck it against the crossbar.

The former Everton trainee would have won a point for his team if he was successful from Chelsea.

The Blues ended their return to the Champions League in defeat.

Chelsea were also handed a big problem on the injury front.
