"Very disappointed abut this game because we lost," the Japan international told LCFC TV.

"Chelsea ha a very strong second half and we lost one goal, then it was 2-2, then a red card to Wasi (Marcin Wasilewski).

"He's a good player and we were disappointed. 10 against 11 is so difficult but we had 120 minutes of a good game.
