Chelsea players remain confident of seeing off Fenerbahce at home

Chelsea players Carlo Cudicini and Didier Drogba insist all is not lost after Wednesday night's Champions League first-leg defeat at Fenerbahce.

Cudicini said: "I don't think we collapsed, it's just sometimes we need to close out games.

"It has sometimes happened this season. When you don't close out the game, the opposition have got a chance if they score."

Cudicini feels Chelsea are still in a good position to progress to the semi-finals, where they would face Arsenal or Liverpool.

"We are confident," he said. "We have shown we have the ability to play very well, as we did in the first half. We know we can beat them at the Bridge."

Striker Drogba agreed, adding: "We created a lot of chances which is good for the second leg, we know we will have a lot of chances but we have to score them."
