Thibaut Courtois admits mistakes as Chelsea crash out

Thibaut Courtois admits mistakes as Chelsea crash out

"Obviously there is no extension signed but I don't think now is the moment to do it". However, with his contract expiring in 2019, the Blues are yet to agree to an extention and both Real Madrid and even Ligue 1 giants PSG are very interested.

The return match from the first seconds did not go according to the script of "Chelsea" already on the second minute the goalkeeper "the Aristocrats" Thibaut Courtois managed to skip between his legs after hitting the ball Lionel Messi, who threatened the opposition goal from nearly zero angle. I think it is better to wait until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old holding midfielder was named as Chelsea FC's best player in an otherwise disappointing night for the Premier League clash at Camp Nou.

"Before, I used to try to steal the ball and make something happen on my own - or at least try to do something on my own", Messi told America TV. It's easy when you have only one year remaining that other people might say something. The others were missed passes and we paid for them, they scored from our mistakes.

Champions League quarter-final draw: All you need to know
Playing away from home in the first leg is generally considered an advantage, but this will be decided by the luck of the draw. This is the earliest stage of the competition where clubs from the same national association can be drawn against each other.

Lionel Messi put a pair of shots through Courtois' legs, with Ousmane Dembele adding another goal as Barcelona cruised to a 3-0 win to advance to the quarterfinals 4-1 on aggregate.

"We deserved more, but against this team you can not concede and then miss chances", Alonso added.

The London club have also been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Barcelona in the round of 16, meaning that finishing outside of the top four will give them a spot in the UEFA Europa League next season. We will do our best to win.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, but despite a potential managerial change, it is understood Hazard wants a fresh start.
