Our Champions League hopes are gone, though Chelsea can still qualify for Europe by winning the FA Cup, or finishing inside the top 6 (or possibly 7). Nevertheless, the 2015-16 season will remain as one of the worst in Chelsea's modern history, and Willian recently said that the team is still paying back for our bad tenure under José Mourinho in the season's first few months.

"The beginning [of the season] didn't start as well as wanted it to. We lost games and the team couldn't find itself on the pitch. After that, we went through a big evolution, and now we are playing very well in my opinion, but we are still paying [the price] for the beginning of the season."

Another Brazilian who was involved in Wednesday's match, Oscar, claimed that the team wanted to win, but the second goal from PSG was the nail on the Blues' coffin.

"We really wanted to win this game. It would be important, but we tried, we played well in the first half, then we let in the second goal and it became difficult [to turn things around]. I think that we started the season poorly, now we are 12, 13 games without a loss and today it happened that we suffered from one."

Oscar also spoke about rumours of his potential departure, saying that his mind at the moment is on finishing this season with Chelsea, and then seeing what will happen once a new manager takes the team next summer.

"Now the general feeling is to end things on the right foot. I have spoken more than once that my mind is at Chelsea and this season. Afterwards, we will certainly have a new manager and we will see what happens."

With Chelsea missing out on Champions League football next season, it wouldn't be too surprising if a few names within the squad make a push for a transfer next summer. In any case, it will be interesting to see whether there will be a major shift on the backbone of this team, or if things will stay the same.
