Some Chelsea fans hailed the performance of Trevoh Chalobah during the 3-0 rout of Crystal Palace in the Premier League opener.
Chalobah has been in fine form lately, and he made his club debut against Villarreal in the Super Cup.
He produced a defensive masterclass on the night, and carried the form into his Premier League debut.
Chalobah completed 81 passes against Palace, and capped the performance with a stunning long-range goal.
This has got many Chelsea fans excited, and here are some reactions on Twitter.
Chalobah has been one of the Blues players that has benefitted from tough loan spells. He was in a relegation battle with Lorient in the French Ligue 1 last season.
The stint has done a whole load of good for him. Tuchel has a big decision to make regarding the player’s future amid the club’s search for a new centre-back.
They have been heavily linked with a move for Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, but judging by Chalobah’s emergence, they don’t necessarily need the Frenchman in their ranks.
Chalobah appears well and ready to shine in the Blues shirt. Based on recent form, Tuchel may find it hard to drop him despite Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma waiting on the wings.
