Ben Chilwell admits Chelsea 'inexperience' amid poor start to the season - but insists Mauricio Pochettino is working...
- Chelsea struggling this season
- Have won one Premier League match
- Chilwell backs them to improve
WHAT HAPPENED? Chelsea have collected just four points from as many games in the Premier League this season, most recently losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge. That defeat leaves them eight points adrift of leaders Manchester City already and Chilwell feels he is one of the figures who must help carry the team to a higher level.
WHAT THEY SAID: "It is such a young and new squad. Its inexperienced in a way. Theres a new manager trying to impart his ideas and it is down to me and Reece [James, captain] to take on responsibility and be leaders in the group and guide the ship a little bit," he told reporters while on England duty. "Especially in the last few weeks in what could be seen as a bit of a tough time. I kind of just try to guide the ship through that, stay confident and know what talent we have in the squad. We are confident and also have a great manager. We are very aware [of whats wrong] but confident we can turn it around very quickly."
