Nathalie Bjorn is back and raring to make an impact during the run-in of our Women’s Super League season, with a trip to face Tottenham Hotspur this evening up next.

The Blues travel to Brisbane Road to make up our game in hand. We sit three points behind WSL leaders Manchester City but have a marginally better goal difference after an emphatic 8-0 win over Bristol City last time out.

It was during that victory our Swedish defender returned to the starting XI following a lengthy spell out with injury. And ahead of our penultimate fixture, the 27-year-old spoke of her desire to play her part in our bid to reclaim the WSL title.

‘It has been tough with the injury but I’m very happy to be back with the team and being able to play games, help the team and contribute on the pitch,’ said Bjorn. ‘It has been getting straight back to it, but that’s good and I’m happy to be back.

'I really feel the trust from Emma. We have a good relationship and a good dialogue about me and my body. It was a good confidence boost to play the game against Bristol and get almost 90 minutes.’

The Blues will take to the pitch this evening having had nine days to prepare since their last match. Bjorn believes her side must use that to their advantage against Spurs.

'We all feel refreshed mentally and physically to really take this game on and take this second chance for the title,’ added Bjorn. ‘We need to take this opportunity if we want to win the league.’

When Bjorn joined the club during the January transfer window, she spoke of her desire to win silverware – and that feeling has only been ramped up ahead of our final two league fixtures.

‘I have said it before, but it is one of the reasons why I joined Chelsea,’ said Bjorn. ‘I want to win this trophy.’

She knows if the Blues are to win a fifth consecutive title, we will have to perform in what Bjorn expects to be a challenging encounter at Spurs.

‘It’s going to be a tough game,’ added our defender. ‘They played the cup final not too long ago so that can affect them, but that can also affect us.

‘We know it’s going to be a tough one. They’re physical and are a good team. We need to spot on from minute one and play the way we know we can and want to play.’
