Kurt Zouma: This is what I felt after scoring against Arsenal in the derby


Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma was delighted after scoring against Arsenal in Saturday's derby.

The 20-year-old was a surprise regular in Jose Mourinho's line-up with captain John Terry sitting on the bench.

But he didn't disappoint as he produced a very solid performance at the back and also fired his side in the lead with a precise header early in the second half.

"It was an amazing feeling," Zouma told Chelsea TV.

"When you play the big derby you're always excited and for me it was an amazing game because I scored for the team and the team did very well, like we did on Wednesday, so we are very happy.

"I am very happy with the goal, with the win and with the clean sheet as well.

"I'm very happy and proud because that was the first win at home in the Premier League this season, that's the most important thing for me, and the first goal is really important. I'm really happy because we worked hard for that and I think we deserved it.

"It's very important for us because this kind of game will give us more confidence now and we showed that Chelsea are still there and we are a very strong team. Now we have to just keep going and improve that."
