Andreas Christensen breaks silence on his mistake in Chelsea’s draw against Barcelona

Andreas Christensen insists he will not dwell on his mistake which cost Chelsea in their 1-1 draw with Barcelona on Tuesday evening.

Willian had given Antonio Conte’s side the lead in the second half and the Premier League champions’ organised defence was managing to contain Barcelona’s attack.

But Christensen played a pass across his own box which was intercepted by Andreas Iniesta, and the Spanish midfielder cut the ball back to Lionel Messi who struck a low effort past Thibaut Courtois.

‘I had done all the hard work and kept the ball in play, but then I made a very bad decision, I should have kicked it out,’ Christensen told TV3 Sport.

As a centre-back, you get punished by your mistakes, however, it’s the position that I’ve chosen to play, so I won’t be dwelling too much on it and let it get to me.

‘I know I made a mistake, but there is not much else to do than to learn from it and make sure it doesn’t happen again.’
