Federico Chiesa believes Juventus showed their spirit during their 1-0 victory over Chelsea, amid an injury crisis.

The Italy inernational scored the only goal of the game right after the half-time break to give

Juve

the points.

Chelsea

held possession in the first half. But despite dominating the ball, they struggled to create big chances and open up the home side.

“It was a hard-fought performance, because Chelsea pinned us back and did really well in possession, but this evening we showed what the Juve spirit is all about, the spirit that the coach asks for,”

Chiesa told

Amazon Prime Italia.

“We started out with a system, then the coach changed so we could attack the space, where Chelsea were struggling this evening, and we did well to punish them.”

“It’s a huge challenge, it’s wonderful to play in this competition. Now we enjoy this victory, but then there’s another very important game coming up on Saturday.”

Chiesa also criticized the media, who suggested Allegri was dropping him to prove a point.

“I’ve never had a problem with the coach, this was just created by the media. I do whatever he asks, there’s no issue here. I know you lot like it when Juve start the season badly, so you can start with pointless gossip, but we are all behind the coach and want to bring Juve back to the years of dominating the Scudetto race.”
