How Chelsea dressing room reacted to Ross Barkley penalty miss in Valencia defeat

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard insisted there was no "unrest' in the Stamford Bridge dressing room following Ross Barkley's crucial penalty miss. The Blues made a losing return to Champions League action Lampard and co. counted the cost of Barkley's late missed penalty against Valencia. Chelsea eventually lost 1-0, thanks to Rodrigo’s second-half strike. "Of course not," said Lampard. "We’re here to win and the only disappointment – Ross as much as anyone – is that we didn’t score the penalty to then have five minutes to win the game. I took penalties and I missed some but it comes with the territory. There’s no issue in the dressing room, we just wanted a result." Lampard added: "Ross is the penalty taker. He took some in pre-season and he has been when he has started, and he was today when he came on. I don't know what conversation was, but Jorginho and Willian were penalty-takers until Ross came on the pitch."
