Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah is ‘ready to go again’ after the mid-season break for the World Cup as the Blues look to turn their dismal form around.

Prior to the break, Chelsea were without a win in their last five Premier League games. Two draws against Brentford and Manchester United were followed up by three straight defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion, Arsenal and Newcastle United.

The poor run of form in the league has seen Graham Potter’s side slip down to eighth, something which isn’t good enough for a club like Chelsea.

Chelsea return on December 27 for their first league game back after the World Cup. They come up against AFC Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Before then, Chalobah and the rest of his teammates are out in the Middle East after they headed out to Abu Dhabi for a warm-weather training camp. Chelsea will also play a friendly against Aston Villa while they are out there.

Chelsea know their recent form hasn’t been good enough and Chalobah believes the long break has given them the opportunity to recharge the batteries to go again and get back on the winning trail to try to close the gap to Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the table.

Speaking to The National News in Abu Dhabi, Chalobah said: “It’s the longest winter break of the Premier League that I have experienced and it certainly has given us the time to recharge and regroup for the second half of the season.

“We came on the back of a very hard period and the break provides us with the opportunity to get ready physically and mentally. We had a lot of games and spent a lot of minutes, and we now freshen up and get ready to go again.”

Despite lingering down in eighth, Chalobah isn’t concerned about Chelsea’s current position and is instead wanting to focus on what the team are doing to improve.

The 23-year-old added: “We are focusing on ourselves rather than where we are at the moment.

“That’s the main thing. We want to be up there. We know what we need to do and that’s what we are going to work out during this camp.”
