Andreas Christensen has admitted his frustration at his recent dip in form with Chelsea FC.

The Danish defender has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances for the west London side so far this season after having returned to Stamford Bridge following a two-year loan spell at German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

Christensen has found himself as a regular fixture in the first team at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte this season and he was rewarded with a new improved contract earlier this year.

However, the 21-year-old has suffered something of a dip in form in recent weeks and he has come under the spotlight for some unconvincing displays.

The centre-half will be hoping to improve his form between now and the end of the season as he bids to try and help Chelsea FC to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

And the defender has now opened up about his recent struggles as he bids to enjoy a strong end to the campaign.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Christensen said: “It has been difficult. You are not doubting yourself, but you might get a bit more cautious in what you do, and that can make things even worse.

“So it is difficult to move on. I’ve been annoyed at myself, and that is difficult to get rid of – especially when there is a week between the matches, because then you have a whole week to think about it.

“You just want to move on to the next match so that you can play a match without mistakes.

“I can’t avoid making mistakes but in some games the mistakes have been decisive, so now I am just waiting for the next games to come, so I can prove that the mistakes aren’t typical for me.”
