Chelsea defender Toni Rudiger feels he’s in the best form of his career.
The German proved the matchwinner in midweek as Chelsea defeated Tottenham to reach the Carabao Cup final.
“Over the two legs, it was definitely [a fair reflection]. The home game we were in total control. In the second game game in the second half they were dangerous but that was because of our lack of focus,” Rudiger said post-match.
Speaking of his goal, Rudiger did acknowledge there was some luck involved.
“I just know it hit my head and I was hoping it goes in,” he said, smiling. “This is what I’m working on, it’s good – to get in those positions like that.
“Last time I played here I scored. It’s important to help the team and to lead by example.”
Rudiger also said: “I am enjoying it. It’s about chapters. I enjoy chapters. So far, it’s the best time of my career. There’s a lot of tough games to play, the schedule is getting busier and busier. We have to be ready for it.”
