In truth, the home side were lucky to escape from their UEFA Champions League Group E clash with the point as it took a late penalty kick from Robert Soldado to earn them a share of the spoils.
The Blues had gone ahead earlier through a fine Frank Lampard strike and forced Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves into making several outstanding stops to keep his team in the game.
Alves' saves proved to be crucial as Salomon Kalou conceded a penalty in the 87th minute which Soldado converted to salvage point for Valencia.
"We have enjoyed a sensational game," Llorente told Superdeporte.es after the match.
"Valencia gave great effort. The two teams could have won."
"Alves has been sensational.
"The whole team has made a big effort and the fans have been supporting us until the end, and that is to thank the [player's] effort. We would have liked to have won, obviously, but given the circumstances, the draw is good."
Valencia will now face German side Bayer Leverkusen in their next Champions League encounter.
Valencia currently lie third in Group E after drawing their opening two matches and are one point behind second-placed Bayer Leverkusen who they play next month.
