Colwill delighted after making ‘amazing’ Chelsea debut

Levi Colwill has reflected on his first appearance for Chelsea after making his debut for the club against Liverpool on Sunday.

Colwill was included in the starting side as Mauricio Pochettino’s side began the Premier League season with a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues producing an encouraging performance in west London.

 

The 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Brighton and shone as the Seagulls secured a top-six finish, before featuring prominently as England’s u-21 side won the European Championship without conceding a goal during the summer.

Colwill has now been included in Pochettino’s plans for the new season and says his Chelsea debut is something he has ‘worked for’ since first joining the club’s academy system.

“This is everything I’ve worked for my whole life, my whole career,” Colwill told the club’s official website.

“From being a little boy watching the games, it has been amazing. It is a blessing to be able to come here, especially to play against such a good team like Liverpool.

“When you hear all the fans going crazy it is the best feeling ever. From being a little kid and being part of the fans and shouting and then being on the pitch and listening to it, it felt amazing.”

Chelsea were unfortunate not to take all three points against Liverpool and Colwill insists there is belief within the squad that the club can have a successful season.

“What can’t we do? It is as simple as that. Everyone needs to believe in that. We all need confidence to go into every game thinking we can win, and we will see at the end of the season what happens.

“We’ve got young, hungry players. Everyone has a point to prove. With all the players we’ve got who can make a difference, who can score, and players who do well at the other end of the pitch, I think it will be a good mix and an exciting season.”
