Chelsea young gun Traore privileged to be scoring goals under Hiddink

Bertrand Traore is thrilled with how things are currently coming along at Chelsea.

The 20-year-old Burkina Faso star has scored three goals in his past three outings for the Blues for who he has played just seven times this season.

Late goals in the 5-1 routs of MK Dons and Manchester City in the FA Cup as well as the same scoreline demolition of Newcastle United in the Premier League last weekend has Traore thoroughly enjoying 2016 under Guus Hiddink.

"It is a good feeling for me. Now I have to stay focused, working hard in training and try to take any opportunity I get," he told Chelsea TV.

"I am happy for the team, happy with the performance and that I got another goal."

He added: "I like challenges so I am always ready to come on the pitch and show what I can do so I always train for this kind of moments.

"Everyone wants to play every week as a starting number but I am young, I just have to fight and keep working hard and my time will come.

"It is a privilege for me, coming from Africa as a young player and being coached by a great manager like Guus Hiddink so I am proud of that."
