Andre Schurrle happy to play anywhere

Bayern Munich goal keeper Manuel Neuer believes that the current Chelsea side are better than the previous side that won the Champions League final

PRAGUE -- Chelsea attacker Andre Schurrle says he is happy to play in any position and feels no reason to fear the recent arrival of Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala.

Schurrle, 22, was fielded as Chelsea’s most advanced player in their 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Monday, a move that surprised many given the availability of strikers Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Romelu Lukaku.

But the Germany international insists it is a position he feels comfortable in, saying: "I played there a couple of times in Leverkusen, playing as the striker was nothing new for me I knew what to do -- it was fully okay."

The signing of Willian this week has brought fresh competition for Schurrle and his team-mates, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar and Victor Moses also battling to play in a similar position on the pitch.

But the former Bayer Leverkusen man is not perturbed by the acquisition, and instead embraces the presence of further quality in the Chelsea squad.

"I think we have a good squad and we need a big squad for the season because we have so many games," Schurrle said. "We are in many competitions so need a big squad with much quality. It is good for every player because you have to give your best in all training sessions and matches. It’s only positive for the team."

Schurrle is relishing the prospect of facing some of his Germany team-mates when Chelsea take on Bayern Munich in the UEFA Super Cup on Friday, and is hopeful of landing his first major title since moving to Stamford Bridge this summer.

"I’m really looking forward to this match, I am familiar with most of the Bayern team, indeed some of them are personal friends of mine," Schurrle said. "But we are eager to grab this title so we are taking this bull head on and looking forward to it."

Schurrle's start to the season has impressed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, but the Portuguese kept his cards close to his chest with regards to whether he will start Friday’s match at Eden Arena.

“He is one of the young talents we have, against Manchester United we played with four attacking players -- Schurrle, De Bruyne, Hazard and Oscar," Mourinho said.  "All of them are under 22 so we are speaking about kids. He is one of them and we have more.

"He is a kid that needs to get better, needs to learn, needs to use every minute on the pitch and every minute of a training session. Especially as the Premier League is a different competition and he needs a different style to adapt because we know he is one of the important players in Germany and European football.

"I can’t say if he plays tomorrow, I know who will play but the players don’t and I always tell them before the media."
