He is the centre-back with the most Premier League minutes, with only captain Cesar Azpilicueta among the Blues defenders having played more and, with the team sat in third with just two matches remaining, the 25-year-old tentatively agrees that he is enjoying a positive year back in SW6.
"I think it's going well," he told the official Chelsea website.
"I've been playing a lot so I'm very happy with my game time but I don't like to talk too much about myself.
"I think the team are having a great season. At the minute, we're third and in the semi-finals of the FA Cup so we've still got a lot to play for. We have to be confident and go into the game with the mindset to win."
Zouma also appreciates the support of defensie partner Toni Rudiger.
"Rudi is one of my friends," Zouma continues. "On and off the pitch, he's the guy who has a lot of personality, he gives advice to the young guys and he's always there to make people smile. He's got that older brother behaviour where he looks after everybody.
"I've been playing with Andreas [Christensen] and Fikayo [Tomori] as well so I feel really good with all of them. The competition is there so we have to train well to get some game time."
