Chelsea’s Shevchenko: Everything’s going as it should

Sheva said: “I have already more or less adapted to English football, to the team, to the way we play – and you need time for that. Everything’s going as it should.

“If there are to be obstacles in front of me at this stage of my career, I’ll make sure I overcome them.

“I have always had confidence in myself. But football is a tricky sport.

“It’s not always possible to be on top form, especially after the kind of season I had last year, when tiredness and injuries built up.”
