Chelsea fullback Alonso: We were unlucky - but they have Messi

Thibaut Courtois has admitted he made a mistake against Barcelona

"I don't think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs", the Belgium global told BT Sport. However, with his contract expiring in 2019, the Blues are yet to agree to an extention and both Real Madrid and even Ligue 1 giants PSG are very interested.

The Argentine was unstoppable and managed to put two goals between Thibaut Courtois's legs during the second leg to end any hopes that Chelsea had of a Champions League trophy.

Do you think Barca will win the treble this season?

"I wonder if someone should try to man-mark Messi, a player with really quick movement who can dart across the pitch", Keown told the Daily Mail.

Marcos Alonso says Chelsea have no time to dwell on their Champions League exit and must refocus on domestic duties and securing qualification for the competition next season.

The Belgian has for the last three years been a target for the current Spanish and European League champions.

The London club have also been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Barcelona in the round of 16, meaning that finishing outside of the top four will give them a spot in the UEFA Europa League next season.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois accepted the blame for Chelsea's defeat against Barcelona on Wednesday night, March 14.

Chelsea's only hope for silverware this season rest in the FA Cup where they face Leicester City in the quarter-finals on Sunday. Why would they stay if we can not compete with the likes of Manchester City both domestically and in the transfer market? We will do our best to win.
