Tiemoue Bakayoko believes that he has become more “rigorous” since his transfer to Chelsea FC from Monaco last summer.

The midfielder has endured something of a mixed campaign since signing for the Blues from Monaco last year, and he has struggled to produce consistent performances.

Despite that, the 23-year-old has still scored two goals and made two assists in 29 Premier League appearances for Antonio Conte’s men.

He will be hoping to continue his improvement at Stamford Bridge next season as he look to become a reliable member of the Chelsea FC starting line-up.

And Bakayoko has admitted that working under Conte this season has significantly helped him to develop his game during his first year in London.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC’s website, Bakayoko said: “It’s really good but really hard [in England].

“There is work to do every day. You have to work on being alert and focused but he’s a really great coach and throughout the season, from a personal point of view, he’s really helped me to progress.

“I’ve worked on my focus, I’ve become more rigorous, because that was something I struggled with at my previous club and I hope to continue to make progress with him.”

Bakayoko will be hoping to help Chelsea FC end the season with a trophy when they take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend.

The Blues reached the final last season by they were beaten by Arsenal in the showpiece at Wembley back in May of 2017.

The west London side also won the Premier League title last season in Conte’s first campaign in charge of the club.
