Nathan Ake played his first 90 minutes for Chelsea since his loan recall from Bournemouth during Sunday's 4-0 FA Cup win over Brentford.
The Dutchmen, who made 10 Premier League appearance for the Cherries this season, put in a strong shift at left-wing back before shifting into Chelsea's back three in the second half during the club's win over Brentford. After the match, Ake said he has a clear understanding of what is desired of him and how he must go about earning his keep at Stamford Bridge. "On the first day I was back, [Antonio Conte] called me into his office and explained the different positions he sees me in and what he expects from me when I play those positions," Ake said. "For him, age doesn't matter. I just have to show him I'm ready to be here and that's what I try to do in training." While the 21-year-old will face tight competition for regular starts, an injury to Conte's current first-team would likely see Ake step into the starting XI at Stamford Bridge. Jan 30 - 3:00 PM
