Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen broke his nose in the defeat to Manchester United last Monday, and needed a face mask to be able to face Tottenham during the weekend.
The centre-back flew to Milan in the week to have a protective mask fitted and he was able to take his place at the heart of a back three, alongside captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Toni Rudiger.
Christensen had a good game despite the mask, and he revealed after the game that he was very comfortable in it.
“The nose is good, it’s as comfortable as it can be when wearing the mask,” said the Dane.
“I’m just glad I was able to play and do my part for the team.”
Christensen was pleased with the performance of the team and revealed that the only downside was the late goal conceded.
“I thought we played brilliantly,” added the Dane. “It was a very strong performance and it is something for us to build on now.
“The only downside to the whole performance was conceding near to the end, which made it a little more nervy than it probably should have been, because we were in control throughout the game.
“But we showed good concentration and stayed professional to the end to see the game out and secure a big three points in front of our fans.”
