Romeu determined to make Chelsea first team spot his own

Oriol Romeu is looking to force his way back into the Chelsea first team under Rafael Benitez.

The Spanish midfielder was back in the Blues line-up for Wednesday's scoreless draw with Fulham and after a long time out of the team, is hoping he can now make selection a habit.

"I was happy to be involved for the whole game, but the main thing I want is for the team to win, which we didn't," Romeu told the club's official website.

"Every player needs to be ready when a chance comes along. Obviously it's not as easy as you would like when you haven't been playing regularly, but it's just about going out there and playing football in the way you always have done.

"That's what I want, and hopefully this time around I won't get any injuries so that I can keep playing throughout the months ahead.

"I always try to train hard and stay fit, but the main thing when you have an opportunity is to play well in order to help the team."
