The last time Kurt Zouma was associated with a Chelsea clean sheet execution was away against Tottenham in the game before Christmas, so having been so again yesterday, the large safeguard was justifiably satisfied with his night’s work, particularly against a side like Liverpool.
The score was equivalent to that coordinate at Spurs, 2-0 to the Blues, and Willian was again among the objectives with Ross Barkley joining the Brazilian on the scoresheet this time, and Zouma differentiated exhibitions like those two with a portion of the less fruitful ones as of late. Solidarity he said was critical to beating Liverpool.
Everyone was battling a great deal for each ball, everybody going around and protecting and assaulting. It was a decent game to watch I think and we did an excellent game.
Any spotless sheet is acceptable however particularly against Liverpool. We realize they have extraordinary players in advance, they have an incredible group, and we did very well protectively and it isn’t just about safeguards, we all as a group played very well protectively, and unpleasantly. We could have scored more.
We did a decent game yet we have to remain centered on the grounds that there are games when we can play great, and others when we are not really good or bad. Possibly players are somewhat worn out, I don’t have the foggiest idea, perhaps we are not centered enough.
‘Against Liverpool this is the mindset we have to keep each game. We have a significant game on Sunday [against Everton], we have to get the success at home and proceed onward from that point.
Zouma added his voice to the chorale of appreciation for the way 18-year-old Billy Gilmour approached his work in midfield against Liverpool, in what was just his third senior beginning.
Mind blowing execution, develop in his game, and quiet and smart too with the ball and without the ball,’ said Zouma who is seven years more seasoned than Gilmour.
He was phenomenal, similar to he is preparing. He is preparing generally excellent. He is exceptionally certain and he can keep the ball, he is going near and squeezing the folks. He has a splendid future in front of him, he simply needs to continue buckling down.
