“The defender impressed in the youth teams at the London club and then coach Jose Mourinho called up Christensen for a preseason tour with the first team. The Dane divided his time between the U19 side and the first team, winning the UEFA Youth League with the former and making his debut for the latter.


“In search of more playing time, Christensen set off for Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach on loan in 2015. The central defender spent two seasons in Germany, gaining valuable experience before being recalled by Chelsea.
