thumbnail Hello,

Jose Mourinho's side are chasing a two-goal deficit in the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Stamford Bridge after conceding in stoppage time at Parc des Princes

Gary Cahill admitted the late Javier Pastore goal in Chelsea's 3-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain was a "devastating" blow.

PSG took the lead at Parc des Princes through Ezequiel Lavezzi, only for the visitors to pull level through an Eden Hazard penalty.

But a David Luiz own goal put the hosts back in front, before Pastore beat Petr Cech at his near post at the death to give his side a huge boost ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg at Stamford Bridge.

"[It was a] horrible time to concede then, a sloppy goal, unlike us and it was a big blow at 2-1," Cahill told Sky Sports.

"Obviously it was difficult to come here. 2-1 would have been okay going back to Stamford Bridge I suppose, but the blow at the end is devastating."

Cahill remains optimistic that Chelsea can still win the tie at Stamford Bridge, despite the two-goal deficit.

He added: "It will be tough but we're at home at Stamford Bridge and we've been playing well there.

"We need to, we've got a big task ahead of us and we need to approach it in the right manner and be on the front foot, but obviously a disappointing night for us."
