Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen says his team have a lot of improving to do after slipping to a 2-0 defeat to Valencia on Saturday.

The German was one of Barca’s better performers at Mestalla, saving a penalty from Maxi Gomez and pulling off a string of other important stops.

Saturday’s result is a first defeat for new manager Quique Setien, and Ter Stegen offered his thoughts after the game.

“The truth is we didn’t really have that many chances. We wanted to try and hurt them but we have to improve in various aspects.

“In these kinds of games you always have to look at what we’ve done well and what we’ve done badly. We have to keep working hard to reach the level that we want.”

Barcelona return to action on Thursday in the Copa del Rey against Leganes. Ter Stegen is likely to start again in that match with Neto out with a sprained ankle.
