Charly Musonda has told Antonio Conte that he is working harder than ever to make sure that he is in peak physical condition at Chelsea.

The 21-year-old has been made to wait for his first-team opportunities under the Italian manager this season, with Musonda having only made two substitute appearances in the Premier League so far this term.

Musonda has also featured twice in the League Cup but the youngster will be aiming to prove himself as worthy of holding down a more regular spot with the Blues in the coming weeks and months.

And the attacking midfielder has revealed that he has been working harder than ever to make sure that he is in the best shape to deliver for the Blues.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Musonda said: “Overall I am working more physically now.

“I am working on my physical condition in the gym because that is the most important, that is my next phase coming into this league.

“The rest is training and doing as much as I can there and taking it step-by-step.”

Musonda will be hoping to be involved when Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday night with a trip to Bournemouth.

The Blues head into that game looking to make it back to back wins in the Premier League after their thrilling 4-2 victory over Watford last weekend.

Chelsea are looking to defend their title after having won the trophy for the second time in three years last season.
