With the summer arrivals of Melanie Leupolz, Jessie Fleming, Niamh Charles and Pernille Harder, competition for places in the Blues squad is higher than ever but Cuthbert is relishing the extra competition and believes the depth of the squad will be vital in helping Chelsea achieve success on all fronts this season.
‘If we want to win the major trophies, like we all do, if we want to compete for every single trophy, including the Champions League, then we are going to need all the depth in the squad we can get.’ Cuthbert said.
‘We saw from Wednesday to Sunday how much we’ve changed the squad and we’ve managed to keep the performance levels so high.
‘The foundations for that performance is done in training and everyone will see what we do on a Sunday but actually all that is built from the week.
‘Everyone is working together as a squad because we all want to help each other achieve the best and when we do it provides a performance like that.
‘We all want success – we all want the best for each other. I started on the bench on Wednesday and I was cheering on the girls and when I started the game today I could hear the girls cheering for me.
‘Everyone wants the best for each other, we are the ones pushing each other to reach new heights and if we keep pushing each other then the sky will be the limit for us.’
