Christensen - A Chance to Shine?
After spending two consecutive seasons on loan with Borussia Monchengladbach, Andreas Christensen now has an early chance to show Chelsea supporters just how highly rated he is.
With Gary Cahill on the receiving end of what many perceive was a harsh red-card, midway through the first-half, our club captain will be suspended for the next three games.
As a result, Christensen now has three games to show what he can offer.
Coming on in place of young Jeremie Boga, to shore up the defence, Christensen played his part in trying to repair the damage caused by that 3-0 first-half deficit.
Capable on the ball, the 21-year-old looked comfortable bringing the ball out of the defence and is more than likely set to play in a back three that will also include David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta.
After the games, Andreas had a few words for the media relating to what happened against Burnley, remarking,
'Everyone knows what's happened today. We are proud of our second half, we fought well, but we'd made it difficult for ourselves. Now we have to look forward.
'It felt like, once we scored our first, the belief grew in the stadium and the noise, everything, went to a higher level. In the end we could have got something from the game.
'We have to work in our next game at Tottenham how we played in the second half today.'
We sure do and it`s time a new hero emerged from the background, could that hero be Andreas Christensen?
