Cape Town - Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen
believes he will remain at the club until the end of 2018/19 and he is
unlikely to leave in January.
Christensen is out of favour at Stamford Bridge under manager
Maurizio Sarri and has not made a single Premier League appearance this
In the previous campaign under then manager Antonio Conte the Denmark
international was a regular, however, he did at times commit some key
errors in defence for the Blues.
Sarri has used David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger as his regular
centre-back pairing and a move away from Stamford Bridge has been
discussed as he seeks out regular first team football.
When asked by Sky Sports if he would leave in January, the
22-year-old said: "Difficult question. No, I don't think so. Things are
different from last season. I played a lot of games [last season] but
this season it hasn't been like that.
"It's always difficult for a player but we'll see what happens. If
you asked every player that's not playing if they're happy, they're
going to say no. Everyone wants to play.
"I can't do anything else but go back there, train and do my best.
Every time I get that opportunity, I have to do well and show him that
he can count on me.
"You don't want to sit around and wait for it. You want to play
straight away and that's why we all play football. Not playing is not
fun. It's a different situation to last season."
