Chelsea striker Shevchenko: We must keep heads high

He said: “It is important the team keep trying to achieve things. The squad have been great this season and still are. It is a lottery when a game is decided on penalties.

“It was a great opportunity for us and I am sad we didn’t take it. The decision was made that I couldn’t play on Sunday.

“The doctor spoke with the manager and the club. It has been a difficult time for me with injuries. It just happens that it has come at a very important time.”
