Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell was in fine form yet again yesterday for Chelsea as the Blues cane from behind to beat Sheffield United 4-1 at Stamford Bridge.
The former Leicester City star, who scored Chelsea’s second goal on the night after connecting with Hakim Ziyech’s cross at the far post was overwhelmed with happiness for the team’s performance.
“We’ve come into this game on the back of a few clean sheets so it would’ve been nice to have another but the way we reacted after the first goal showed character,” he said after the match as picked up by Tribal Football.
“Going 1-0 down against Sheffield United can be difficult, they’re resilient and it was going to be a challenge but going down so soon and to win like that shows good character.”
“I couldn’t ask for more, it’s a dream playing for Chelsea at the moment. Running forward having Reece James and Hakim Ziyech who want to come in and cross like that is perfect for me. I’m always being told to get on the back post so hopefully I can get a few more goals from there.”
“We’ve worked on that a lot Hakim [Ziyech] cutting in and me or Timo Werner being there, I didn’t know much about it at the time but I’ll take it and its another goal so I’m happy.
“I didn’t have my bearings, I just got in at the back post and hoped it would hit me and go across goal or go in so I was lucky it went in – I didn’t know it had gone in until I looked at Tammy [Abraham] and then I copied his celebration.
“At half-time the boys said to me when you get in at the back post you make your own luck. I’ve had a few this season from that spot that haven’t gone in so I’m lucky to get this one.”
