Chelsea fans hail Trevoh Chalobah after superb Premier League debut

A section of Chelsea fans on Twitter were delighted for Trevoh Chalobah after he made a sensational Premier League debut against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 22-year-old was out on loan for the past three years, but he has now established himself under Thomas Tuchel after making a big impression in pre-season.

He was handed his debut against Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday, and he was the stand-out performer with a defensive masterclass in Belfast.

There were no surprises when he made his Premier League bow for the Blues yesterday, and it was another resounding display from the club’s graduate.

Chalobah has impressed with his ability to link up with his teammates higher up the field, given he can also play in the defensive midfield position.

He capped yesterday’s performance with the final goal in the 3-0 rout. Chalobah made another run into the opposition half before unleashing a long-range shot.

The fans were clearly delighted for him, and here are some reactions on Twitter.

There were recently suggestions that Chalobah could be loaned out with the club’s ongoing pursuit of Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

However, after recent displays, it appears unlikely that Tuchel will sanction the deal, and it could be someone else heading for the exit door.

Kurt Zouma was on the bench despite starting recent games. He appears the most likely to leave if the Blues land Kounde in the coming weeks.

Chalobah could also be an option for Tuchel in the defensive midfield role. He appears to be reaping the rewards after his loan stint at Lorient last term.
