Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen has revealed that he has spoken to club legend John Terry for advice.

The 21-year-old has emerged as a regular feature in Antonio Conte's team at Stamford Bridge, having made 19 starts in the Premier League this season.

Christensen came under criticism recently for making a few howlers at the back, including ones against Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City.

"I try to keep it inside the club and not bring it home with me," the Dane told Eurosport. "My teammates have also seen all my other performances, so they know that these mistakes aren't typical for me.

"I have had a small talk with John Terry, he has also experienced setbacks, and it is always nice to talk to someone watching it from the outside and to learn that they have experienced the same.

"He told me that it is natural to make mistakes. And he tried to put it in perspective for me saying that if a forward misses a chance he can make it good again by scoring when he gets the next opportunity, but we can't change a goal scored against us.

"So when we make mistakes it is more crucial and it is easy to point fingers at. I have realised it, looked at it and now I have moved on."

Christensen has played the full 90 minutes in his last six appearances.
