Bertrand Traoré reflects on scoring for third straight match and always being ready for the next opportunity

Betrand Traoré may have only scored Chelsea's fifth and final goal on Sunday night (nobody else better at scoring fifth goals!), but he seems to be the man of the hour as far as most post-match chatter is concerned.  It was the 20-year-old's third straight game with a goal, all three coming as at least 20-minute-long substitute appearances.  Another opportunity grabbed.  Further faith rewarded.

"It is a good feeling for me. Now I have to stay focused, working hard in training and try to take any opportunity I get."

"I tried to put the ball in the back of the net. I think I was lucky with the goal but still I meant to put the ball in the net but not in that way. I am happy for the team, happy with the performance and that I got another goal.  For a couple of games now we are in good shape. Everybody is okay, everybody is doing well and we have to keep going in the same way."

All seven of Traoré's appearances have come off the bench, but given his current form, he could perhaps sneak in a start or two especially with Chelsea's fixture list looking busy once again starting next weekend.  One thing is for sure, Traoré will be ready whenever called upon.

"I like challenges so I am always ready to come on the pitch and show what I can do so I always train for this kind of moments"
