Chelsea's Wright-Phillips: My game has matured

Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has given an insight on how his game has matured since his days at Manchester City.

Wright-Phillips said: "At City I would just go into dark alleys but now I know that if it is tight to come back and go the other way and start again.

"It is about pass selection. You have to be clever, especially being around the Champions League.

"If somebody knows you are going to go one way all the time - most times you are going to lose the ball. If you can adapt you help the team more.

"I know sometimes for a striker it is hard to get involved so I try to at least get the ball to him if he makes runs.

"I get in positions where I can create chances for people to score. I am learning so I still believe there is a lot more to come but I am a bit wiser now."
