Ben Chilwell was pleased about Chelsea's clean sheet in the goalless draw with Sevilla.

The Blues entered their first Champions League match of the season having conceded nine goals in five Premier League matches.

Edouard Mendy was in inspired form to deny Sevilla, and left-back Chilwell was delighted not to concede.

"The important thing is the clean sheet," he told BT Sport. "We knew people would be looking at us after conceding three goals at the weekend. We were solid defensively against a good team and didn't give them many chances so we'll take a draw and a clean sheet.

"In general as a team it was, I won't say comfortable because we were under pressure at times, but we were organised as a team. I thought defensively we were very good.

"We are a top team and when you're playing for Chelsea you expect clean sheets and if you concede goals you will get criticism. We've been working hard on the training pitch and we've showed that we're a strong outfit defensively.

"It was disappointing to have no fans but as a team the motivation was there regardless of that, especially for people like me who are new to it all."
