Ladies reaction: Close look ahead of City
news Tue 30 Jan 2018
Jonna Andersson talks us through another decisive attacking contribution after helping Chelsea Ladies to a vital win over Everton at the weekend.
The Swedish wing-back joined the club at the end of December and she has already been involved in two match-winning goals in three appearances, helping the Blues to an additional four points.
Having forced a late goal on her debut against Arsenal, the Swede marked her first start with a wonderful 85th-minute winner against the Toffees, but her focus is only on how her actions make an impact on the team.
‘We weren’t good enough, but the most important thing is that we got the three points,’ she said. ‘I was in the right place at the right time and I screamed at Fran [Kirby] to let her know I was behind her, so if she didn't have the chance she could pass to me. It went in and it was amazing.’
The result sets us up nicely for Thursday’s rescheduled meeting with Manchester City at Kingsmeadow, which kicks off at 7pm.
‘Now we just need to look at what we did well against Everton and why we didn't do so well in the first half,’ Andersson said. ‘After half-time we became more aggressive and went a bit more with a back three, and we had more possession.
‘We'll analyse it and go out again for the next game. These three points are really important but on Thursday they are just as important. We just want to keep winning every game.’
