Chelsea youngster says “I’m enjoying playing my football under Antonio Conte”

Chelsea center-back Andreas Christensen has admitted that he is loving his football at Stamford Bridge after replacing David Luiz.

The 21-year-old year has just returned from a two-year loan spell with Borussia Mönchengladbach and has finally entered Antonio Conte sight. With both David Luiz and Antonio Conte reportedly getting into a row, Andreas Christensen has benefited largely from that and has been at his very best in the Chelsea back three.




The Demark international has made ten appearances for the Blues this season in the Premier League and has played the full 90 minutes in Chelsea last four Premier League fixtures. However, while the season still has a long way to go, Christensen intends to keep his place in the side and hopes Chelsea maintain their improved form.

In an interview, the 21-year-old spoke about the Swansea game “We felt like we had quite a lot of opportunities in the first half so we just had to keep doing what we were doing and hope for that scrappy goal, which we got in the end, we had to be patient.

I’m happy with the way I’m performing and the team are performing,’ he further said. ‘We’re getting the points that are necessary and I’m enjoying playing my football. For me the loan was perfect timing. I got a lot of experience and played in the Champions League for two seasons.

During Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Swansea City, Andreas Christensen was the only player on the pitch to boast a 100% pass completion and the Denmark international believes that his time on loan with Borussia Mönchengladbach helped improve his skills. “The Bundesliga is a high level and that was what I needed to help me come back. It’s going to be difficult but we’re just concentrating on getting the points we can, right now we’re in a good place and hopefully we can build on that,’ explained the defender.

We don’t look at who we’re playing, we just look at a tight schedule, prepare ourselves for a tough month and make sure we rest the right way.”

Author’s take:

With one solid performance after another, Andreas Christensen somehow managed to displace David Luiz from Antonio Conte’s starting eleven. However, it’s his future performances as a part of Chelsea’s back-three that could potentially help the Blues catch up with Manchester City.
