The Chelsea No.19 spoke to us about his season so far, his midfield versatility and some ding-dong battles with Leeds during his loan spell with Derby County in the Championship two seasons ago.
‘I obviously knew about the Chelsea-Leeds rivalry back in the past, before I went on loan to Derby,’ he said. ‘But then, when I was there and we played against them four times, the atmosphere was unbelievable every time.
‘It was fiery, competitive, and it definitely felt like a local derby, even though it wasn’t local. So Derby and Leeds had a similar rivalry and you could feel the tension every time we played.’
