Ross Barkley missed a late penalty as Chelsea's Champions League campaign under Frank Lampard began with a 1-0 loss to Valencia in Group H.

Valencia's off-the-field issues have overshadowed their on-field exploits since Marcelino's sacking last week, but Albert Celades' side bounced back from their 5-2 defeat to Barcelona with a resilient performance at Stamford Bridge.

With Jasper Cillessen in fine form and Mason Mount's injury having compounded Chelsea's frustrations, the Blues' frailties were exposed once more when Rodrigo Moreno prodded in Dani Parejo's free-kick with16 minutes remaining.

Abraham: This can be my season

Abraham: This can be my season Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has expressed his hope that “this can be my season” following his wonderful hat-trick in the 5-2 win at Wolves. Abraham’s treble on Saturday saw him surge to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with seven goals, where he was subsequently joined by Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero. The 21-year-old, who had gone into the game having netted back-to-back doubles in the previous two matches, is hoping his fruitful run of form can help him cement his place in Chelsea's first team. Abraham told Chelsea's official website: “I’ve been working hard and hopefully this can be my season.

VAR came to Chelsea's rescue when the referee decided to award the hosts a spot-kick for a Daniel Wass handball, but substitute Barkley - who overruled Willian to take the penalty - struck the bar.

Fresh from his hat-trick against Wolves, Tammy Abraham should have done better in the sixth minute when he latched onto Cesar Azpilicueta's cross - Cillessen making the save.

Chelsea were dealt a blow soon after, Mount's Champions League debut cut short as he failed to overcome an ankle injury inflicted by Francis Coquelin's robust challenge.

Chelsea 0-1 Valencia: Barkley fluffs his lines from the spot as Rodrigo condemns Lampard to defeat

But just after Lampard had gambled in throwing on Olivier Giroud for Kurt Zouma, Valencia struck.

Having stole a march on his markers, Rodrigo just managed to make enough contact on Parejo's superb pass.

Chelsea's fortunes looked to have turned with four minutes remaining when referee Cuneyt Cakir handed them a lifeline having looked at the touch-line screen, but Barkley failed to keep his composure.

What does it mean? Injuries Mount up for Lampard

To add injury to insult, Lampard - who was already without Antonio Rudiger, Emerson and N'Golo Kante heading into Tuesday's match - could now be missing influential midfielder Mount for Liverpool's trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Rodrigo comes alive when it matters

Valencia's front two had hardly tested Kepa Arrizabalaga prior to Rodrigo's chance, but the Spain international made no mistake with a clinical finish.

Barkley's confidence misplaced

Barkley had only been on the pitch seven minutes when he stepped up to take the spot-kick, even though Willian seemed to want it, and there is sure to be an inquest in the Chelsea dressing room as to why the substitute pulled rank after a dismal attempt.
