Andreas Christensen showed a good performance vs Manchester City last Saturday at Stamford Bridge and now he reveals the importance of manager Antonio Conte in his development as a defender and as a player.

I’m happy for the matches I’ve got, and I think I’ve shown myself as well as I could. It may seem like I play in one position, but at training I have also trained on the other two places, so if I need it, I will not think twice about jumping in there”, – Christensen told Bold – “I can use it for something, and I hope it can help give me more playing time ahead. But the result was not very good, so it’s only the positive I can take with it.”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Andreas Christensen will properly replace David Luiz, who will miss out on next three games after being shown a straight red card against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

“Yes, Christensen is a very young player but I think he is a good player and I trust him – Conte said speaking at a press conference – Now he has the possibility to play and now he has to prepare very well to play.

Chelsea will face Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, then Stoke City and Manchester City in the Premier League.

“It was a good result,” Chelsea boss Antonio Conte told BT Sport after the clash against Qarabag. “We started the Champions League in the right way. – he added – I saw great commitment, focus and concentration right from the start”.

“It was a great performance from the players, a lot of positive things from us”.

When asked about Davide Zappacosta‘s stunning goal from the right flank, Conte said: “Davide played very well and Eden Hazard is trying to find his best form”.

Also Denmark international defender Andreas Christensen was given a chance to improve as he played the whole game as centre-back: “Is very important to give players the opportunity like Christensen. They must understand I trust them. I have 17-18 senior players. Every single player can have a chance to play”.

“I wanted to give a good chance to Michy, and also to Christensen. To play in the Champions League means the coach trusts you. My message tonight was this. I trust all my players, not only with words but with facts”.

“For the first game in the Champions League I decided to start with rotation. Also because we have to start the process to improve our players.

If we think we can play with 13 players like last season, we are crazy. Instead, we have to improve our players and try to create a good competition between them. A positive competition is very important”.

Andreas Christensen made his debut for Chelsea in the first half against Burnley, replacing Boga after Gary Cahill was sent off.

“I think everyone knows what happened. – the defensive-midfielder said – We have to pick ourselves up and look forward to the next game”.

“We could have taken something from this match. When we got the first goal, the belief grew and you could feel it in the stadium as well. The noise and everything just went to another level and we could have got something”.

Chelsea came from behind in the second half scoring twice with Alvaro Morata and David Luiz: “We’re proud of our second half – Christensen noted – we fought well and we know we had made it difficult for ourselves in the first half. I think everyone is quite clear what happened and now we are just looking forward”.

“We have to fight the same way. Be clever, play our type of football again and I’m sure everybody is looking forward to Tottenham next week”.

According to Italian newspaper TuttosportInter Milan want to sign Andreas Christensen.

The Chelsea defender, who played for Borussia Moenchengladbach on loan last season, is rated £22.4 million. However, if the two sides will reach a deal, the most probable outcome will be a season-long loan with an obligatory option to make the move permanent.

Chelsea and Inter Milan are talking also about Antonio Candreva with the Italian winger who can become a new player for Antonio Conte‘s side.

Chelsea are being criticised this summer for selling a lot of their Academy’s players who have the potential to become football stars: between them, for example, Dominik Solanke and Bertrand Traoré.

However, defender Andreas Christensen, another of the players who played on loan last season, believes Chelsea and their youth system are working very well: “I’d like to think Chelsea’s academy helps yong players – Christensen told the Evening Standard -. Some people say that they just abandon you, that they don’t keep an eye on you, but that is definitely not true. “There is Eddie Newton and Paulo Ferreira doing a great job and they visited me quite a few times. They would also send me videos of my games, telling me where to improve. I always watched those videos, would take the advice on board and take it into the next game, even though sometimes I’d forget another thing. I got all the help I needed.”

 

Cesc Fabregas just posted a photo of Chelsea squad leaving for China on his Instagram account.

Besides the Spanish midfielder in the picture we recognize Courtois, Willian, Caballero, Batshuayi, Pedro, Davis Luiz, Marcos Alonso, Kenedy, Lewis Baker,  Remy, Christensen, Scott, Kalas, Pasalic, Clarke-Salter, Boga, Musonda.

As we said today new signings Tiemoué Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger didn’t travel as they are recovering from minor injuries, Eden Hazard stayed in London to have a better recovery for his fractured ankle injury, Nemanja Matic didn’t travel since he can sign for another team in the next days ( Man United?) and Diego Costa is still on his break in Brazil since he is out of the squad and ready for a return to Atletico Madrid.

The team will do a stop-over in Dubai before continuing their journey to Bejing, where they will play against Arsenal next Saturday.

Chelsea will then travel to Singapore where they will face Bayern Munich ( 25 July) and Inter ( 29 July) in the last two friendly games of this pre-season.

According to Sky Sport Italia Inter are keen to sign Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

The Nerazzurri are looking for a centre-back and after signing Milan Skriniar from Sampdoria ( even if the deal is not official yet) they are looking for another young player to revamp their defense.

Rumours claim Inter directors enquired with Chelsea about Christensen situation: the 21-year-old impressed in his two years long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach and he is now set to join the Blues first team squad for the pre-season.

Should he fail to gain Antonio Conte’s trust he will be on the market again but it’s not clear yet if Chelsea are keen for a loan or a permanent move for the Danish talent.
