Nathaniel Chalobah is happy after playing his first whole game at Chelsea: this happened yesterday, in the FA Cup clash against Peterborough United, that the Blues won 4-1.
The young midfielder always had Antonio Conte‘s trust and support and was delighted to share his feeling after this special day with the press:
It was a proud moment for me to complete my first 90 minutes at Chelsea.
“I am really happy. We have just got to going now, we are up there in the league at the minute.
“We are taking it game by game and there is still a long way to go in the season, anything can happen. This is good development at a club that I have been at from a very young age so we [young players] are all very happy.
“I think that’s the dream [to make it at Chelsea], we have always thought of playing for Chelsea and we are doing it all together at the minute. The manager has got faith in us and he has given us the chance so it is something that we are proud of and all the young players at the club just need to keep following their dream.”
Chalobah played alongside Cesc Fabregas against in the FA Cup game against Peterborough on Sunday but he knows that it will be tough to be a regular starter. Anyway, he claims the chance to learn from Fabregas, N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic has been invaluable.
“I just watch them every week and they have just gone 13 games unbeaten which makes it hard to get into the side.
“Obviously there are a few players ahead of us [younger players]. So every week, every game, I just watch and learn from them because they have got the experience that I don’t have yet.”
