Chelsea defender Marc Guehi impressed as he made his debut for the Chelsea senior team in the Carabao Cup against Grimsby Town.

Guehi came on as a second-half sub against the League Two side and it didn’t take long for fans to see how talented the young centre-back is.

The 19-year-old has hailed the work going on in the Chelsea academy and believes that a lot of people deserve credit for the progress while also revealing that they are taught to play many positions so they can adapt to any situation.

“It shows that there’s good work going on behind the scenes at Chelsea,” he said. “Not many people behind the scenes get that much credit but, as you can see, it shows how many players we have got who are pushing on.

“And it’s not just these guys in the U21s but throughout all the age groups in England. Chelsea tries to play you in different positions when you are younger. On the left or right and we would change formations as well.

“You have to adapt, so when you do play international football and you have to change formation, like today, it comes naturally.”

Guehi also revealed that one of his strengths is that he can find the net even as a defender and he revealed some other things he’s trying to improve on.

“I can score a few goals, not too many, but that’s an area I want to improve on. I am trying to be good with both feet. I try to play out [from the back].”

“I try to be aggressive in my challenges, in one-vs-one duels, and I try to communicate well and be a leader. I am learning from some of the best. Wherever the manager wants me to play, I will play there and I will do my best for the team to do my job.

“I will be ready to play against anyone.”
