Chelsea signed Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco last summer after the France international had a good season with the French giants.

The 23-year-old was tasked with replacing Nemanja Matic in the Chelsea midfield but his performances have been below-par for most part of the season to the fury of the Chelsea fans.

Bakayoko has now revealed that the game in England is much different from what he is used to in France.

He said: “It’s more intense, the difficulty level is higher.

“There is no time to rest or drop the ball for one game, that’s clear and it becomes clearer with every game I play for Chelsea.

“It’s also really exciting and there is really no comparison.

“Here I’d say it’s the intensity, when you get the ball the time between defence and attack is so fast.

“The ball just flies backwards and forwards, and that’s something unique to here whereas in France you have more time to build up your attacks, something you don’t have here.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
