On a day when his Chelsea teammates may be putting their feet up after yesterday’s impressive 4-0 win at Stoke City, Charly Musonda was putting in the hard work at the gym.
Handed the club’s No.17 shirt for this season, it seems the talented youngster is doing all he can to give himself the best possible chance to succeed at Stamford Bridge.
While he may have been an unused substitute at the bet365 Stadium yesterday afternoon, Musonda rightfully deserves his place in Antonio Conte’s squad at present.
After scoring on an impressive full debut for the Blues against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, chances in the first team are going to come for the player over the next couple of weeks.
Taking to Instagram earlier this afternoon, the 20-year-old posted an image of himself in the gym to show his followers he means business.
Musonda, who played against Atletico Madrid during his time on loan at Real Betis in 2016, will hope he has done enough to be part of the club’s travelling party to the Spanish capital on Wednesday evening.
Given his impressive attitude, Chelsea fans will probably see a lot more of Musonda over the coming months.
“We will be ready” Chelsea boss Conte gives fans assurances over Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has given Blues fans assurances over their upcoming Champions League clash with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid by saying that his Chelsea side “will be ready” following their 4-0 demolition of Stoke on the weekend, as reported by the Sun.
Chelsea, who will be the first foreign team to play at Atletico’s new Wanda Metrpolitano stadium on Wednesday, hammered Stoke 4-0 on Saturday with star striker Alvaro Morata bagging a hat-trick, as the Blues look continue their fine form.
Boss Conte has been speaking about his side’s tough test against Atletico next week, saying that “We have to prepare in the right way for this tough game. In the last few years they’ve been strong in the Champions League reaching two finals. But we are in good shape. We are rotating and the answer from my players is positive. We will be ready.”
To make things even more complicated for Chelsea, recently departed striker Diego Costa is set to be paraded by the Atletico Madrid before the match, as per the Sun.
Should Chelsea beat Atleti next week, they’ll put themselves firmly in the driving seat to finish top of their group and progress into the next round.
