The midfielder scored twice in extra time as Chelsea came from 2-0 down to beat Leicester 4-2 in the EFL Cup third round on Tuesday.

He is yet to start a Premier League game this season, with his only two starts coming in the cup against Bristol Rovers and the Foxes.

“It’s a new situation for me in my career after 13 years of basically playing all the time for my club and national team,” he said.

“And it’s been tough - I’m not going to deny it. But the last thing I will do is complain or put my hands up and give in. Something from inside is coming out stronger than ever and I will fight for my place.”
