Branislav Ivanovic admitted Chelsea were failing to show the resilience that helped win them the Champions League after they were exposed again by top-class opposition.

Wednesday night's 2-2 draw against Juventus in the opening match of their defence of the trophy was the third time already this season the Blues' defensive deficiencies have cost them dearly on the big stage.

Ivanovic said: "We are playing differently this year, with more emphasis on attacking, but everyone also has to be focused on defending and being organised. This is what helped us get good results last year."
