'It was the coldest that I've ever played in'

For all the challenges that we faced in Sweden, from the weather to the plastic pitch, we delivered a professional display to beat Ostersunds.

Calum Chambers impressed in that Europa League last-32 clash, and ahead of the return leg he told the media that it was an important win in terms of building confidence.


on whether the 3-0 advantage has made training a bit more relaxed…

It was a good win. I thought we went out there and did a professional job. The conditions were hard, but we didn’t let it affect us and I thought we put in a good performance. Training’s been good since then and we’re looking to finish the job tomorrow.

on another win being important for momentum going into Sunday’s final…

Yeah, momentum’s an important thing in football. If we go and finish the job tomorrow, hopefully it will give us some good momentum going into the weekend.


on how difficult the first-leg conditions were in Sweden…

For me, it was probably the coldest I’ve played in but as I said earlier I think we dealt with it well. We went out there, it didn’t affect us as a team or as individuals. Considering the conditions, we put in a really professional performance.

on how important it is for him to play…

It’s important for me. It’s important for me at this age to play games. I’m at that age now where obviously the games we’re playing are all experiences for me. Games like that are all new experiences, so I think that the more games you play the better.


on game time and if more than he expected…

These competitions can help us for game time. For me, at the start of the season I got injured, so that was a bit frustrating for me. I worked hard to come back from that. Competitions like the Europa League are big, we take them seriously, but every opportunity I get I have to do the best I can to prove myself. I’m just working hard off the pitch and every opportunity I get, I’ll give it my best.
