Young Chelsea defender Marc Guehi was part of the England U21 team that defeated Austria U21 5-1 on Monday night.

Guehi made his Chelsea senior team debut in the 7-1 win over Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup game, and the young defender impressed for the Blues.

The 19-year-old has revealed that he has learnt a lot from being with the England U21s as he bids his time with the Chelsea team.

Just like a lot of Chelsea youngsters, Guehi is looking to breaking into the first team and has revealed that even young players like Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen have been helpful as he also hailed the help of the skipper Cesar Azpilicueta.

“I learned so much today in the Under-21s,” Guehi said.

“All experience is good experience, especially games for your country. I’ll take it back to spur me on to push into the first-team. Hopefully I’ll get a few more first-team games at Chelsea and carry on pushing. I want to improve as a player.

“If the manager (Frank Lampard) gives me the chance then I’ll be grateful but if he doesn’t I’ll have to keep my head down and keep working hard. I’m learning from some great players – and the manager – at Chelsea, so everything is going really well.

“All the players have been helping me, especially the defenders. Even someone like Fikayo Tomori who’s a young lad coming through, but we have seen how well he is doing. [It’s the same with] players like Andreas Christensen.

“We have leaders like Cesar Azpilicueta as well, who have been there for a long time, so you can learn off players like that. It’s been a good start but I hope to achieve more. Let’s see what the future holds.”
