Loic Remy: It is frustrating sitting on the bench


Chelsea striker Loic Remy admits he is growing frustrated by his lack of starts in recent weeks but is ready to fight for a regular place.

The Frenchman joined Jose Mourinho's side during last summer's transfer window for a reported fee of £10.5m but struggled to impose himself in his side's offensive department.

And with Diego Costa suffering a hamstring injury against Hull City, the 28-year-old might get his chance to shine as he is ready to help the Blues in their last nine games of the season.

"It is true it is frustrating sitting on the bench but the manager knows all the team and he has very good quality in the squad," Remy told the club's official website.

"That is why when I came on I just played with my quality. Scoring goals is my job as a striker but I know there are only 11 players on the pitch and as soon the manager needs me I am here.

"The goal was a good moment for me but it was the work of all the team and we are working properly at training every day to achieve success.

"It was just a question of being in the right place at the right time and we are just looking forward to the next step.

"For us it is really important to win this kind of game. We are still of top of the league and we keep going in this way and will see what happens the season.

"After the two goals we scored they reacted in the right way and put us in a difficult situation. The two goals they scored in a row gave them confidence and it was a bit difficult but the most important is the win.

"Hopefully we will win this title but we could see again in this game that it is not an easy league to win and that is why we will try to fight every game to win."
