Chelsea striker Loic Remy has revealed that the Stamford Bridge club’s fringe players are keen to impress and play a key role as the Blues bid to win an unprecedented quadruple, as reported by the Daily Star.
The west London club progressed in another competition at the weekend, beating Watford to enter the fourth round of the FA Cup with ease.
The 3-0 victory was earned in the second half, with Remy scoring the second goal that went a long way to ensure progression.
However, it was the introduction of the likes of Willian and Diego Costa that turned the tie, as Watford had proven very difficult to break down in the first half.
As a result, it might be difficult to justify the inclusion of the likes of Remy in the first team in the league due to their display in the cup game, given that they couldn’t break down a Championship side.
Remy is happy to play a role in reserve, however, and said: “It will be hard but we want to win every competition.
“That’s where the mentality and quality of the squad can make the difference.
“We just try to be a strong squad because a lot of things can happen in the season.
“Every time we have an opportunity to play, like some of us did against Watford, we have to show the manager he can count on us.
“Individually we have to be ready and fit because you never know what is going to happen.”
