Stones Admits He is Going Through A Difficult Spell

England defender John Stones has admitted he is having a difficult time with Manchester City, as he struggles to hold down a place in the champions-elect's side. In fact his last two games ended in defeat for Man City, which takes some doing when you look at how few matches they have lost. Stones said: "It's difficult. Every player wants to play week-in, week-out. But I've had games here and there, I've been fighting and that's all you can do. Train hard, keep working hard and when your chance comes you've got to take it and that's what I've done. Stayed positive. I've had the players' backing and the manager's [Guardiola's] backing. It's one of those things where the team's winning games and playing well, and you can't get back in just like that. I've got to keep working hard and that's what I've been doing. Still learning while I'm on the sidelines, that's a massive thing. You can't switch off and when your chance comes you're ready to take it."

I have one year contract and feel good at Chelsea, and at the end of the season we sit down together and set a good vision, I live there quietly and know that I will be at Chelsea next year as well.
