Magdalena Eriksson: Excited for the future

Emma has added even more world-class players this season. How are they settling in and how have they improved as a squad?

‘I think the new players always bring something extra. This time it has been professionalism, determination and hard work.

‘They are also really good characters and people as well and they drive the standards that we always talk about.

‘In training, in our everyday work, in our games as well, I think we have proven that the quality of the squad is amazing.

‘It doesn’t matter who we put out there and who we end with when we are playing games, the quality shines through the whole squad and also on the training pitch, the level of competition is amazing to witness.’

What do you hope to achieve in the next few years?

‘The ultimate goal is always winning trophies, to add to the list of trophies that Chelsea already have as a club. That is the ultimate goal.

‘It’s also about developing as a player, playing with amazing teammates and experiencing amazing things together with them and the staff.’

Eriksson and the team take on Arsenal in a mouth-water top-of-the-table clash on Sunday. The match kicks off at 2.30pm and can be watched on BT Sport.
