Chelsea goalkeeper Jamie Cumming convinced he can make it in Premier League

Chelsea goalkeeper Jamie Cumming is convinced he can make it at Premier League level.

Cumming is part of the senior keepers pool at Chelsea this season.

He told Goal: "It might not have looked ideal from the outside but my former academy coaches, Jody [Morris], Joe [Edwards] and James [Russell, assistant goalkeeper coach], made it easy for me to develop myself.

"Hilario, the goalkeeper coach, had done the role (reserve goalkeeper) himself and knew what I needed to do to improve.

"As a young player, I also learned a lot from training with Kepa and Willy, who are great people. Obviously, you want to start playing games eventually but I took everything I could out of that time."

Cumming has been at Chelsea since he was an Under-8 and believes he has the ability to eventually become our first-choice keeper.

"Everyone believes they can play at the highest level and I would like to think I could get to the Premier League in a few years," he added.

"I have seen what the level is like but I believe in myself. I think I can get to that level. I know what I am capable of but it is up to me to show it every season."
