Altetico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has conceded to defeat stating that his side lost to a better side who out-classed them in every department.
Though Simeone thought the La Liga giants had a chance to kill the game off through Saul Niguez, he had no complaints about the result.
Express quoted Simeone to say that “The opponent was the better team, they were the more comfortable team in all moments, and deserved to win,”.
“They played a good game in general, they are a very strong and competitive team, and showed their status Simeone said.
“They were better tactically, technically, physically, with intensity.
“You must congratulate a team who played as Chelsea did today.
“A draw was good for us, they had patience in the last play to move the ball very well and end the game very well for them.”
