Champions League football returns this midweek and Chelsea will be facing Malmo FF. The Blues will be hosting their Swedish opponents at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. Chelsea defender Reece James was the nominated player to speak to the media ahead of the third group game.
The right-back, who returned from injury as a late sub in Chelsea's hard-fought win at Brentford over the weekend, views tomorrow’s night Champions League meeting with Malmo as an opportunity for Chelsea to continue their winning run and also improve their performance levels.
According to James, ‘Tomorrow is a Champions League game, and the Champions League is a tough competition in football. Anything can happen, so we still need to prepare right. It’s not going to be an easy game, they’re a good side. Hopefully, we can get the win and start building momentum.’
‘It’s still early on in the season, and we are not going to be at the highest level yet,’ noted James.
‘There is still a long way to go. The last few games probably haven’t been the highest level for us, but once we start winning and finding form and picking up momentum, I believe our performances will get.
'We are aware that a win would see us remain in the top two spots of Group H and we will be ready to give all that we have to win the game 'says James.
Hopefully, Chelsea will be victorious. What do you think?
