Trevoh Chalobah has claimed in his post-match interview with the club that he believes he played well last night against Brentford.

The 23-year-old started in defence again as Chelsea were held to a 0-0 draw across West London.

It was Chalobah’s fourth league start of the season, although he has become more of a regular since Graham Potter joined the club.

Now, it’s four starts in a row for the Englishman, who has fitted in seamlessly since Wesley Fofana’s injury against AC Milan.

It is unlikely the Frenchman will be seen again before the World Cup break, leaving an opportunity for Chalobah to continue to prove himself to Potter.

Four successive clean sheets will certainly do him no harm.

The defender has now claimed that he did well playing in the middle of the back three, saying he has learnt from the experienced heads of Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibaly.

He said: “It was good, learning from Thiago and Koulibaly playing in there. It’s good to be versatile and I thought I did well today.”

The Blues will need to be at their defensive best again this weekend when they face Manchester United in a huge match at Stamford Bridge.

Erik ten Hag’s side have recovered well from a tough start to sit just behind Chelsea outside the top four.

Based on current form, it’s hard to argue away from Chalobah starting his fifth successive Chelsea game.

The defender can also boast his unbeaten streak when starting for the club, with him still yet to lose a game in 90 minutes when playing from the beginning.

With it likely to be a back five again for Potter’s side, Chalobah should continue on the right of what’s proving a tough back three to crack.
