Kurt Zouma: Arsenal fans are jealous of Chelsea

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has said his only focus is on winning points rather than playing attractive football, and hit back at Arsenal supporters over their 'boring' jibe after insisting that they'd love to be in the same position as the Blues.

The France international has enjoyed an impressive debut campaign at Stamford Bridge and after working hard throughout the season is pleased to see the end in sight as the players close in on the Premier League title.

"The most important thing is that we keep going and keep winning points," he explained in an interview with Sky Sports. "I think we play the same (talking about Arsenal's playing style) but more defensively because we know that everybody wants to beat us and we are focused on only the points.

"There’s a target for everybody, we are almost there. We have to win the two next matches. We are very determined - all season we've work very hard to win this league."

The 20-year-old joined the Blues from St. Etienne in January 2014 for £13 million, but was loaned back to the French club for the remainder of last season.

Arsenal fans chanted 'boring, boring Chelsea' during Sunday's goalless draw, but Zouma is not bothered by what others say. 

"No, I don’t like this kind of sentence but the supporters can say what they want as we have to be focused on our game.

"They (the fans) are jealous because their team is not top of the league and they want to be top of the league like everyone wants to; that's normal."

The young defender certainly looks to have a bright future ahead of him after hitting the ground running under Jose Mourinho, and was part of the France side that won the Under-20 World Cup in 2013.

"The Premier League for me is the best league in the world because before the game you cannot say we are going to win.

"Leicester [have] won [their last] four matches so we realise it will be difficult - but we have to make it difficult for them."

The Blues travel to the King Power Stadium tonight knowing that a win will mean they are only three points away from being crowned champions.
