Chilwell: Squad depth pushing us all

Ben Chilwell has talked about the tremendous squad depth at Chelsea.

Chelsea had to make a late change on Saturday as Christian Pulisic pulled out before the match and Timo Werner was asked to step in at the last moment.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Chilwell said: “Unfortunately, Christian (Pulisic) got injured in the warm-up and we are all disappointed for him, but when you’ve got Timo to come in it’s a positive and shows what strength in depth we have.

“That competition pushes us all, and it’s one of the key components to a good squad. We have a lot of good players, two or three in each position who are fighting for the shirt. That will help push us forward.

“It was a tough match. We knew that if we came not ready for a fight we could get bullied. That’s what they want, to make it difficult. But we came ready for the fight and also played our style of football, which is important, and we got another clean sheet and three good goals.

“Everyone put a shift in. We looked clinical in front of goal and solid as a defensive unit again.”
