’s mentality will be tested after their thumping 5-2 loss at the hands ofWest Brom
The 22-year-old scored the opener for his side but the Baggies pushed hard to seal the three points as they fight relegation. The Blues midfielder insists that his side must be prepared for a strong response in the upcoming matches.
It’s a big test of our mentality now. We’ve got some really big games coming up,"
the 22-year-old, who sustained a hamstring injury and was sent off, said.
"We’ve been in good form prior to the international break and obviously we’ve come back and lost one game. We can’t dwell on that because we have a lot to play for in both the Premier League and the Champions League. We have to recharge now, refocus and regroup and come back strong and ready for the next game."
