Guehi relishing Chelsea clash after 'right decision'


Marc Guehi is in no doubt his decision to leave Chelsea last summer was the right one for his career and says the FA Cup means everything to clubs like Crystal Palace.

The 21-year-old will line up against his former side at Wembley on Sunday and attempt to ensure the Blues endure a rare trophy-less season by knocking them out in the semi-finals.

Since Guehi swapped Stamford Bridge for Selhurst Park, he has forced his way into the England senior set-up and become one of the best young defenders in the country under Patrick Vieira's guidance.

A total of 30 starts out of 31 Premier League games this season serves as evidence and vindication that his desire to find a new home has paid off.

"I thought the decision to leave Chelsea and come to Palace was the right one in order to get that game time and hopefully show what I can do," Guehi said.

Coming here didn't mean it was going to be a given that I would play, I still had to prove myself, work hard, train hard, but it was definitely the club I thought would give me the platform to do so.
