The Belgian star added: “Southampton drew against Arsenal and it’s always difficult against them home or away, we have to be careful because these are the games we have to win if we want to stay near the top and try to close the gap on Man City. Obviously we are far away but we want to keep on pushing and if we can’t catch them we want to finish second”.

“It was very good that we showed from the start we wanted to win against Huddersfield and that’s the mentality we need in every game”.

Chelsea defender and captain Gary Cahill has praised his teammate Andreas Christensen, who’s currently replacing David Luiz in the centre of defense, alongside the England international and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Cahill told BT Sports“At this football club, you don’t get given gifts, you don’t get given time to play if you’re not good enough. He’s proven that he’s more than capable. He’s growing stronger and stronger every game he plays. It’s natural as well, you get more belief and more confidence from his performances. He’s proven to be a very good footballer”.

“You don’t have to worry every two minutes what he’s doing or what he’s up to or telling him to go here or go there. And that’s a worrying factor. I think it’s one of the positives things you don’t have to do. You feel you can leave him to play his own game. He’s a very good footballer and he can only improve.”

“I think we must be very happy for the performance” said Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, speaking at a press conference following his side’s 1-3 victory over Huddersfield Town tonight.

“We showed a great personality and desire to win the game against a very good team. They beat Manchester United and also Man City struggled to win, this victory improves our confidence after a defeat against West Ham”.

“Chelsea won seven games from the last nine, we drew against Liverpool away and lost at West Ham. I think we are doing a great path but there is a team that is doing a special thing. We have to continue in this way to try to play this football, my players enjoyed to play this type of football. I saw a lot of positive things, but one negative was to concede at the end and we must improve in this because it is important to keep clean sheets, for the goalkeeper and the team”.

The Italian manager added: “This is a big win, on the paper we have played two games at home with Swansea and Newcastle. They have a good coach and organisation, it is not simple to win here. To win against them is not simple”.

The England defender, who featured alongside David Luiz in Munich, told Chelsea’s official website: “In a weird way I kind of expected it, there were only three options so it was quite a likely outcome. It will be a very tough game but it’s a great fixture to look forward to, both for us as players and the supporters”.

“It’s a very difficult tie but hugely exciting for everybody. We have good memories from the last time we played them and obviously we went on to win the trophy”.
