Ryan Bertrand is happy to play further forward for Chelsea.

Ryan Bertrand is happy to play further forward for Chelsea.

Bertrand is a left-back by trade but, with Ashley Cole a fixture in that position for both club and country, the apprentice has found himself pushed further forward.

Bertrand is happy to play wherever he is needed and is hoping his advanced role will allow him to chip in with a few goals.

The 23-year-old said of his relationship with Cole: "The manager sees that we work really well together, it's a really secure side and we attack as well. As long as I'm playing, I'll be happy.

"I managed to poach a goal at the Community Shield last week and it's always nice to score so if I could add that to my game it would be a real bonus."
