Chelsea have kept only one clean sheet and conceded seven goals in the last five league matches.

After the Blues’ 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace, Frank Lampard admitted the defensive work was “not good enough” and stressed his side “cannot feel secure”, if they keep conceding regularly.

Andreas Christensen has played every minute since the restart and has been a regular figure in Chelsea’s starting lineup in 2020. That wasn’t the case in the first half of the season as he made only eight league appearances.

Denmark’s BT interviewed the centre-back and asked the 24-year-old if he has the trust of the former Derby County manager.

Responding to that, he said: “I certainly think he [Lampard] is expressing that. So, I can only try to show that I deserve that trust, and I try to do that in every game.”

Christensen’s current deal at Stamford Bridge lasts until 2022 and he stressed there has been no ‘concrete talks’ with Lampard regarding his future at the club.

“No, not about the future. We’ve only talked about the targets for the current season,” the defender explained.

Despite being forced to watch some matches of this season from the bench, the Denmark international made it clear he has no plans to leave the west London club.

“No [didn’t consider leaving], because before that I’d played a lot of matches in a row. And then when you are out [of starting XI], of course you’re not happy, but when others play well, I can’t do anything but train,” the Dane explained.

“After that, I got a lot of matches again, and it’s kind of a weird situation, but you still feel like you’re being believed and that they trust you.”
