Chelsea ace believes Blues can be “one of the best teams” in the Premier League

Malo Gusto believes Chelsea can become one of the best teams in the Premier League as their late season resurgence continued with a win against Brighton on Wednesday night.

Goals from Cole Palmer and Christopher Nkunku ensured the three points headed back to London, despite the Blues having to withstand heavy pressure following a red card for Reece James and a late Danny Welbeck goal.

The Blues made it four wins on the bounce and leapfrogged Newcastle into sixth following their defeat to Manchester United, and require just a point on the final day against Bournemouth to guarantee a top six finish.

Gusto, who has had a brilliant first season following his arrival from Lyon last summer returned to the starting line-up against the Seagulls.

The 20-year-old played a key role in what turned out to be the winning goal as his run down the right side and inch perfect cutback was converted by Nkunku.

With just one game remaining the Frenchman reflected on his performances this campaign insisting he just tries to learn from every game.

Gusto has had a brilliant first season at Chelsea.

“I just try to improve and learn more game after game”, he told Chelsea’s website.

“I’m very happy to show this type of performance today and I want to show this level all the time.

“I go to the training ground every day and feel very happy to play for Chelsea and to have these teammates.

“I want to show my best every single day, we have improved more the last few games, we enjoy the game, want to stay all together and finish the season well.”

Following a late season resurgence Gusto believes the team have shown the potential in the squad and they have the capability to become one of the best in the league.

“The win was very important for the team to keep in a good way and to try to reach Europe next season”, Gusto added.

“The most important thing is to enjoy the game, stay together and focus on our job, that’s what we have done in the last few games.

“We can be one of the best teams in the Premier League, we have a lot of talent, we know that.

“The start of the season was a little bit complicated, but we knew the most important thing was to finish in a good way. That’s what we did today.”
