Bertrand out to make his mark

With Ashley Cole out for around two weeks, Ryan Bertrand claims he has a chance to put pressure on the defender for the Chelsea and England left-back berth.

Bertrand, 23, will start against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on Thursday as Cole's hamstring injury has kept him sidelined. Now the youngster has a run of games to prove himself as a genuine rival to his senior team-mate.

"Personally it's a chance now for me to come and play in the next few games,'' Bertrand said. "It's just down to me to keep training well, keep my performances up to a level and keep pushing and pushing and pushing until the time comes.

"It's just important I focus on the next game and make sure we get the right results. For me it's about getting in game time and trying to put in as good performances as I can.''

Bertrand has won the Champions League and FA Cup and twice played for England, but has missed out on selection since winning his second cap against Ukraine last September.

"It's just about focusing on my club game and I'm sure if I get enough games and my performances are hopefully good enough that should take care of itself,'' he added.
