Chelsea star Ben Chilwell has revealed what Chelsea co-owner Behdad Eghbhali told the players after the EFL Cup semi-final win over Middlesbrough.

Chilwell, who recently returned from a long-term hamstring injury, played a leading role in the match.

After Chelsea’s emphatic 6-1 victory, which secured our spot in the final of the competition, Chilwell was asked about Eghbhali’s remarks in the dressing room.

Chilwell shared that Eghbhali congratulated the team on their performance and result, and personally expressed that it was good to have Chilwell back.

The game marked Chilwell’s first start since late September, following a period where he missed 18 games across competitions due to his injury.

Chilwell said: “He came in and pretty much just said congratulations to the team. Well done on the performance and well done on the results and personally he said it was good to have me back.”

Chelsea, following their victory over Middlesbrough, will face Liverpool in the EFL Cup final. The final is scheduled to be held on February 25 at Wembley Stadium.
