He added that it is a personal achievement for him being a defender , assingle every defender likes it when they don’t concede goals.


Chelsea began the game with not what they want.But the second half was really good, where they played really well and scored three goals.

Zouma also reported that Jose Mourinho at half-time called for more movement off the ball, as well as introducing goalscorer Willian and Diego Costa for the second half.

The game was Zouma’s 10th Chelsea appearance and his seventh start. The substitute appearances have all been in the Premier League. He is prepared to wait patiently for his first full game in that competition.
