One-goal deficit not too much of an issue according to Chelsea's Cech

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech believes a one-goal deficit should not be too difficult for he and his teammates to overturn next week.

The Blues were beaten 1-0 by Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League Round of 16 first leg tonight due to a first-half penalty but Cech, who wasn't too busy at the National Arena in Romania, suggests the second leg could be a different story.

"This is not the result we want to get away from home in the first leg but to be fair we had better chances than them," he said.

"I hardly made a save all game. They had a penalty and they scored from there and they won. We're just disappointed we didn't score. We made it hard for the return leg but 1-0 is not the result you can't overcome."
