Chilwell comments in the first match in the competition!

Chelsea full-back, Ben Chilwell, admitted that:

His team is still in the process of forming, but a victory in its first game in the Premier League, over Everton (1-0), was necessary.

Chilwell comments:


“We have a lot to work on and develop, but the main thing was the three points, and we got them, so we are happy,”.

He continued, “We are a team in transition, and we are still trying to work together. We have new players who have been merged and new ownership, so we are still working hard.”

Chilwell’s start at Goodison Park was very important, as it came after recovering from a knee injury he suffered in late November.
