Jose Mourinho might have used the 23-year-old sparingly during the previous campaign, but after getting the nod from the start at Turf Moor it shows Schurrle has forced his way into the Chelsea manager's first-team plans.

With competition for places in attacking midfield arguably at an all-time high in west London, the former Bayer Leverkusen star will have his work cut out keeping his place in the starting XI.

However, Schurrle is adamant he has no interest in joining Atletico Madrid, and instead wants to add to his trophy collection at Chelsea.
