Sidwell cool on Chelsea clash

BY foxsports • February 10, 2011

The 28-year-old midfielder joined the Cottagers from Aston Villa in January on a deal until the end of the season, with the option of a three-year contract should he impress. Sidwell spent the 2007/8 campaign with Chelsea but made just 15 league appearances for the Blues before being sold to Villa for £5million. And after a largely disappointing two-and-a-half years in the Midlands, Sidwell is relishing life back in west London under Mark Hughes - but he does not feel he has anything to prove when the champions come calling on Monday night. "It's one of those things in life where if it works out at a club then great, if it doesn't you just get your head down and move on," Sidwell told the Fulham and Hammersmith Chronicle. "It didn't work out at Chelsea but I'm at Fulham now, and all I'm concerned about is putting in a performance for the fans and manager. "Every training session and game is a trial for me. I've got to prove my worth to the manager and wait for discussions at the end of the season."
