Chalobah had just made one Premier League appearance for the Blues so far this season but was given a life-line in unfortunate circumstances after the injury to record signing Wesley Fofana in the first half of the game.
The young English defender stepped up and impressed and now wants more. He says he will will continue working hard behind the scenes to impress new manager Graham Potter and get back to playing regularly.
The 23-year-old told reporters after the game against AC Milan in the Champions League: “Yes for me I am at Chelsea, this is my club. Every time I get the chance I want to show the manager that I am good enough to play.
“Any chance I get I need to do my best and let the manager decide. This is it playing at a big club like Chelsea, you’ve got to be ready.
“If you are not playing you need to know what you need to do better. It starts in training. I’ve been ready for a couple of games now and I got my chance today and hopefully I can take it.
“I felt good stepping on the pitch today. It has been a long time but it felt good and I can’t wait for the next game.”
The win against Milan was one of the best performance for Chelsea this season- and was only the second time they had managed to keep a clean-sheet in the last three months, the first was on the opening day of the campaign against Everton.
Graham Potter is seen as a huge risk in the eyes of many fans but there were moments in that game against Milan where you saw the implementation of his ideas and vision for the kind of football he wants to play.
Chelsea take on managerless Wolves next in the Premier League before travelling to Milan for the second leg encounter in the Champions League.
