Chelsea wing-back Ryan Bertrand says they deserve greater recognition for their recent success.

The Stamford Bridge club have been embroiled in the fall-out from the Mark Clattenburg affair, with the club having accused him of using 'inappropriate language' towards John Obi Mikel last weekend, which has come hot on the heels of the John Terry racism scandal.

"We've got off to a very good start this season and I don't think we have got enough credit for the start we have had," he said.

"It's all been negative stuff. With the draw today we are a bit disappointed but we just look forward to the next game."
