The French forward signed for the Blues from West London rivals Queens Park Rangers in the summer but has largely been used as a substitute this since his arrival, starting just FOUR league games all season.
Much of this has to do with the form of another summer recruit; Diego Costa, but Remy did prove to be the hero last Sunday as he climbed off the bench to score the winner for the league leaders against Hull City – a vital result which maintained their six point lead at the top of the table.
His goal at the KC Stadium was the 28-year-old’s fourth in the league and sixth in all competitions and admits to have found it difficult at the lack of game time this season:
“It is true it is frustrating sitting on the bench but the manager knows all the team and he has very good quality in the squad.” Remy told The Sun.
“Scoring goals is my job as a striker but I know there are only 11 players on the pitch and as soon the manager needs me I am here.” he added.
Remy could well find his opportunities increased following the international break as his club teammate Diego Costa has pulled out of the Spanish squad because of a hamstring injury and is likely to be a doubt for Chelsea’s next league fixture against Stoke City on April 4th.
