Kurt Zouma has opened up on Chelsea’s defensive situation.
The French defender has been one of the better players in a defence that has been shaky for the better part of 18 months now.
“Everyone’s been training hard,” Zouma told a pre-match press conference.
“We played these two great opponents, but defensively we did a great job. I think in the last two games we’ve been doing great. I think the communication’s been better too.
“Also I think just the lads made a really big effort to keep the clean sheet and everyone, we’re all going the same way and we know each other better now. There’s a lot of new players that came in, and with the players that were here last season, the mix has to come quicker.
“We don’t have time to prepare a lot, we have a short time in training because there’s many, many games coming, but we will get there soon hopefully and we just need to enjoy ourselves.”
Zouma was loaned out before the arrival of Lampard to Everton but has managed to make himself the first choice centre back beating the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori!
