Chilwell: It’s good to be back.

Chilwell: It’s good to be back.

The Stamford Bridge crowd applauded almost as loudly when they saw the number 21 being held up by the fourth official on Saturday as they did when Cole Palmer scored the game-winning goal against Fulham.


Naturally, it was the time when Ben Chilwell finally returned to action after missing time due to a hamstring injury. With just over ten minutes left, the vice captain came in to replace Raheem Sterling, and he did his part to see our 1-0 victory through.


While Chilwell was obviously happy to be playing for Mauricio Pochettino’s team again, he also wanted to thank the Chelsea supporters for their unwavering support during his injury, not just against Fulham but throughout the whole game! He hopes to repay their faith with more wins and strong performances!



After our victory over Fulham, a beaming Ben remarked, “It was great to be back out there helping the team.”


“It feels like a long time has passed since I was last on the field, but I am grateful for the wonderful reception I received from the fans, and it was wonderful to be back.”

“The fans have shown me such kindness and support during my injury,” the player said. It’s been acknowledged, I appreciate their support, and as I mentioned earlier, it’s an incredible feeling to be back on the field at Stamford Bridge.


“Since getting hurt is never a pleasant feeling, I’ve just had to learn how to deal with it and try to find the good in it.” I’ve put a lot of effort into getting back into shape so that I can support the team both mentally and physically.


In addition to working hard to prepare myself physically for competition on the field, I’ve also been helping the boys out in the dressing room and throughout training.

“I have made every effort to provide support even in the absence of my involvement.” Whether it’s before the games, at halftime, or at full time, I make an effort to talk to the boys and give them encouragement. I’m back in shape now, so maybe I can contribute on the field as well!


The Blues will now take a long break before our next game, an important Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge in a week.


Chelsea is eight games unbeaten at home in all competitions, even though we trailed from the first leg on Teesside. Chilwell thinks we can build on this success, overcome the deficit, and have another memorable night at Stamford Bridge under the lights.

Chilwell continued, “I think we are beginning to turn a corner a little bit now.”


We have eight wins in a row at the Bridge, and our victory over Fulham in the neighborhood derby gives us a lot of momentum heading into our crucial matchup with Middlesbrough in the [Carabao] cup semifinal.


“I have no doubt that the supporters will support us as they always do, and this is a great chance for us to create another unforgettable night at Stamford Bridge.”
