Petrovic speaks on taking number one spot from Robert Sanchez

Petrovic  breaks silence on taking number one spot from Robert Sanchez

Djordje Petrovic has had a good run of games for Chelsea since making his debut.

The Serbian has deputised for Robert Sanchez after the latter picked up an injury towards the end of 2023.

Petrovic became an instant hit with the fans after his Carabao Cup quarter-final heroics against Newcastle United, and now looks poised for a long spell with the first team, with Sanchez set to be out for a little longer.

Speaking recently about competing for a place with his Spanish teammate, Petrovic said: “I just look at the next game and I just want to help the team.

“The decision is not on me, it is on the coach and that’s it. We push each other and have a good chemistry and that’s all that’s important.”

He later added: “It was good to get two wins and finally an away win.

“We need to keep in mind the next game against Preston is important in the FA Cup and then the semi-final.”

Chelsea’s next two games are Cup games, and ones that the club should win, as they aim to win a first trophy under Mauricio Pochettino this season.
