“We are all together” – Disasi on Chelsea squad

Axel Disasi believes Chelsea’s togetherness was a key factor in Monday’s win against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

It was a day to remember for Disasi who was celebrating his 26th birthday as the Blues held on for a 3-2 victory and a much needed three points.

The French international has been a mainstay of the Chelsea defence this season and formed part of a new defensive unit alongside Trevoh Chalobah, Malo Gusto and the returning Marc Cucurella.

Although Mauricio Pochettino’s men conceded twice it was the first time that backline have played together and they acquitted themselves well.

The Blues have come in for a lot of criticism for their performances this season and find themselves down in 11th in the table but Disasi believes the group are together and the spirit is great.

Speaking to the club’s official website he said: “The spirit was there. I think the spirit was great. We played together and we saw that we can achieve many things when we are like this. We have to keep this spirit because we will need this for the rest of the season.”

“When Misha came in, he made the difference so this showed that all the players can make a difference, we are all together! It’s a good message for the group. I hope that in the future the team will continue like this. We are a group and everyone has to stay focused.”

“We have another game on Sunday [against Leicester City]. Everyone knows that we lost the Carabao Cup final, but we have another chance to go to another final. We will take a rest and prepare for this game very well.”
