Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has been a revelation since his return from Borussia Monchengladbach after a two-year loan spell.

Christensen has been hailed for his performance against Manchester City and a number of games he’s played this season.

The 21-year-old who has stood in for David Luiz in the middle of the back three has revealed that he’s also training to play any role in the back three.

“I’m happy for the matches I’ve played, and I think I’ve shown myself as well as I could,” Christensen told Bold.dk.

“It certainly looks like that’s the position I’m fighting for [at the centre of Chelsea’s defence], but in training I am also working on the other two sides so if there is use for it then I won’t think twice about playing there.

“We’ve played seven games in 21 days so it has been tough.

“Conte said before this run of games that if someone thought they could play every game, they had a screw lose. He really emphasised that he was going to rotate, which he has done. But I think we’ve found our legs and know what we’re going to do.”
