Summer signing Davide Zappacosta is yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea since he signed for the Blues from Italian side Torino.

The 26-year-old announced himself to the Chelsea fans after he scored a wonder goal against Qarabag in the Champions League.

He was brought to provide competition for Victor Moses in the right wing-back position, and the Italian believes he has what it takes to shine there.

“I am convinced that I am well suited to the style of football in England, probably even more so than Italian football,” he told Chelsea’s Matchday programme. “There is more space because the intensity is higher and the game is much quicker, so I can look to exploit that.

“I believe this is one of the best places to play football in the world, and I want to be involved in it for as long as possible. He (Conte) has shown a lot of faith in me. Firstly with the call-up to the Italy squad in 2016 and also now by signing me for Chelsea.

“I really admire him, I owe him a lot and because he has shown so much faith in me, I want to repay that and do my best.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
