Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has suffered a dip in form recently after breaking into the first team at Chelsea this season.

The young defender was one of Chelsea’s best players this season but has suffered a dip in form recently after his mistake against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Christensen admits it’s been difficult for him recently and thanked Chelsea boss Antonio Conte for believing in him.

”It’s been a difficult time recently,” Christensen said as quoted on Daily Express.

“But I’m happy with the overall season.

“It’s easy to just look at the recent games, but I try to remember I played probably 25-30 games with no mistakes at all before that.

“Everyone knows you can’t go through a whole season not making a mistake, as a defender – it’s impossible.

“That’s the bad part about our job – when there’s a goal, there’s a good chance you’re the one getting pointed at, but you still have to take responsibility next time you get the ball and do what’s best for the team.

“It helps when you’ve got good team-mates who take care of you and a manager who believes in you.

“That’s only made things more comfortable for me, and now I want to progress even more.”
