Chelsea right-back, Malo Gusto has stated that winning the Carabao Cup is something both him and the club need.

Gusto is playing in his debut season for Chelsea after moving to Stamford Bridge from Lyon last year.

The 20-year-old has had a phenomenal outing for the Blues so far, and feels it would further boost his development to win something in his first season in England.

Malo Gusto also believes that winning the Carabao Cup would be great for the mentality of the Chelsea team, who have struggled for consistency this season.

“I have a big chance, and the team as well [has a big chance], to win a trophy early in the season,” the Frenchman said ahead of the game on Sunday.

“I think it can be nice for our mentality to help us become better until the end of the season. It is very important for us to take this opportunity to keep pushing during the season.

“The season is not finished. We have to keep working, sticking together, and keep this mentality. Keep pushing to show to the fans that we are Chelsea – and we need to win everything. After this game, it’s not finished.

“We have to win this trophy for us and the fans because they are waiting a lot for this team, but this trophy can be important for everyone for the rest of the season and the club.”
