Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is yet to make a Premier League appearance this season with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri preferring Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz.
The 22-year-old was named Chelsea’s young player of the year last season after making 27 league appearances following his return from a two-year loan spell in Germany.
Christensen admits he’s finding his lack of regular game time at Chelsea this season hard but insists he won’t seek to leave Stamford Bridge on loan in January. He insists he’s ready to fight for his place at Chelsea.
Christensen told Danish football website Bold: “Right now, it’s not a good season for me, but I have to find some way to get back on. How? I do not know, but it’s up to myself to figure out.
“But right now it looks hard. We have good results and we play super good football, which only makes it harder. It’s hard for me personally, but for the team it looks great.”
Asked if he will seek to leave Stamford Bridge on loan in January, Christensen added: “I do not know. I have not thought so, so I do not want to comment on that.”
Despite failing to make a Premier League appearance for Chelsea so far, Christensen has started three games this season – both of Chelsea’s Europa League fixtures, and Chelsea’s Carabao Cup win over Liverpool.
