Chelsea fullback Chilwell: Different pressures compared to Leicester

Ben Chilwell admits he's learning how to handle expectations at Chelsea.

Chilwell also acknowledges there is a different pressure to win at Chelsea compared with his previous club Leicester City.

"When you're at Chelsea, you're expected to win every week," he told Chelsea's website. "It's a massive club and the reason I joined - and why a lot of the boys joined this summer – is because we want to win trophies.

"We've definitely got the squad to do that in time but obviously there is always a scrutiny that comes with playing for this club. We're very fortunate to be able to come into work every day at the moment and do what we enjoy, which is playing football.

"It's very tough for everyone right now so we're fortunate in that sense."
