Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel admits the competition for places will be a challenge for someone like Trevoh Chalobah to navigate.
Chalobah was impressive for the Blues during a 2-2 preseason draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.
When asked about young defender Chalobah by reporters, Tuchel said, per football.london: "We know him from Lorient and Chalo has done very well in pre-season.
"We wanted to continue in the back three, so there was space in the back until [Kurt] Zouma and Toni [Rudiger] arrived.
"He's done very well in both games and within his potential and limits that was nice to see. He played a good match, I agree."
