Starting five of the first seven Premier League games, Andreas Christensen is enjoying life at Chelsea once again.

Pushed to one side by Frank Lampard, the Denmark international has found a new lease of life under Thomas Tuchel, who appears to fully trust the 25-year-old.

One of the big issues with the defender, much like his teammate Antonio Rüdiger, is that his contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season.

There has been a lot of talk about a new deal being on the way, which is something the player himself confirmed while on international duty with Denmark, relayed by TV3 Sport.

He said: “It’s hard to say how things will end up. There is a lot of talk. I will not say too much, but I think it looks good. I am happy to be at Chelsea”.

Christensen went into a bit more detail as well, pleased with the ‘big role’ he’s currently having at the club, but knows full well how quickly things can change if someone else starts impressing.

He also spoke about his tough patch under Frank Lampard, calling the period before the English manager was dismissed as ‘difficult’.

However, with how things have gone so far, he made it clear he now feels he is ‘in the right place’.

It all sounds promising, doesn’t it?
