AVB frustrated with Chelsea stalemate

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas was frustrated at his side's inability to beat Genk after the two clubs fought to a 1-1 Champions League stalemate.
With the Blues suffering two losses in a row in the Barclays Premier League, Villas-Boas was aware his side needed to put out a convincing display against Genk, but was frustrated after David Luiz missed a penalty that would have given Chelsea a much-needed victory.
Speaking to UEFA.com, the Portuguese analysed the game, saying: "First half, we were very good and we managed to get the goal we wanted.
"Second half, in the first 20 minutes our level of performance dropped and we lost control of the game. Then we came back and had fantastic opportunities to make it 2-1. We need to get the opportunities we are getting into the back of the net."
The Chelsea manager was aware that the pressure was on, saying: "We will get back the momentum we had before the defeat to Queens Park Rangers [on 23 October]".
"At the moment it is not happening for us, it was a point away from home but it is a game we wanted to win. Not everything is negative but we wanted to win."
Villas-Boas admitted his frustration that his side had failed to score more goals, sighing: "Two-nil up before half-time is always the ideal situation. We couldn't convert the penalty".
"Raul [Meireles] came close with his shot and we were close to one more goal. When we chased the game we created opportunities but not enough to score.
"We defended well but with every goal you concede you can do better and we need to get back the momentum we have lost", the Blues manager shrugged.
