‘That’s the main thing’: Trevoh Chalobah outlines Chelsea’s ambitions for the rest of the season
An uninspiring first half of the campaign has left the Blues eight points off the top four, albeit with a game in hand on their rivals Spurs who currently occupy the role.
Even the manager change at Stamford Bridge has not had the desire effect. The Blues sit no better after the appointment of Graham Potter then where they were under Thomas Tuchel.
Chalobah has personally seen his minutes increase drastically since the former Brighton man took over, notably due to the injury suffered by Wesley Fofana.
Potter has previously praised him for this impact, describing him as a ‘soldier.’

However, while the Englishman has been performing well, the team overall have not, seeing them fall down the table.
Chalobah has now claimed the sole focus now is on just improving themselves, seeing what comes as a benefit of that.
He said: “We came on the back of a very hard period and the break provides us with the opportunity to get ready physically and mentally. We had a lot of games and spent a lot of minutes, and we now freshen up and get ready to go again.
“We are focusing on ourselves rather than where we are at the moment. That’s the main thing. We want to be up there. We know what we need to do and that’s what we are going to work out during this camp.”
All eyes in that camp at the moment will be on the return to first team football, and the upcoming friendly against Aston Villa will be a good opportunity to see where they’re at ahead of the Premier League return later this month.
