Ben Chilwell has admitted that he joined Chelsea to play in the big games.
Chilwell is easily regarded as one of the finest left-backs in the Premier League right now, and after his move to the Bridge, he now has seven assists and three goals this season as he fights for a place in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up for England at Euro 2020.
And after establishing himself in this side, Chilwell has now opened up and revealed just why he signed with Chelsea, Speaking to talkSPORT, Chilwell said: “This is the reason I came to Chelsea. You want to be playing in so-called cup finals every week when you’re challenging for top four.
“We’ve got Real Madrid on Tuesday, which is stuff as a kid you dream about and we’ve got a cup final.
“It’s a reason I came to Chelsea and we’re excited. Every week is going to be an important game when we are challenging for silverware and top four.
“The Euros on top of that as well, we’re hoping to capitalise on that.”
The win over West Ham this week cemented Chelsea’s grip on a top-four place and the importance of the game was not lost on the players: “(It was) massive. Both teams are fighting for top four.
“We’re roughly on the same number of points, so we knew whoever won today would have a good chance of getting in the top four.
“Thankfully we won and we knew before the game the importance of it. The clean sheet is massive and to get the goal we were happy for Timo (Werner).”
