Steve Sidwell is desperate for more Champions League action at Chelsea.

The midfielder had ten minutes against Valencia and said: "Now that I have 10 minutes in the Champions League under my belt, I want to get out there and play more.

"The way I see it, we're all in the same boat. We've all got to prove to the new manager that we're worth a claim on the shirt.

"Avram has his own thoughts and opinions on players, tactics and methods which will come out in due course, but as it stands we are all fighting for the shirt and that competition can only help Chelsea."
