Carney Chukwuemeka and Omari Hutchinson both impressed by 23-year-old Chelsea player's CL display

Chelsea youngsters Carney Chukwuemeka and Omari Hutchinson both took to Instagram to praise Trevoh Chalobah after his display in the Champions League.

Chalobah, 23, started yet again for the Blues in yesterday’s Champions League group stage match against Red Bull Salzburg.

Graham Potter’s side secured top spot in the group with an impressive 2-1 away win over Salzburg, with Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz on the scoresheet.

For Chalobah, it was another eye-catching display in the Chelsea defence.

The centre-back is getting an extended run in the starting line-up right now, which he’s justifying with some really consistent and solid performances.

Joe Cole even described him as “brilliant” against Salzburg this week.

Chukwuemeka and Hutchinson praise Chalobah

Chalobah posted on Instagram after Chelsea’s win over Salzburg, which received some interesting responses in the comment section.

19-year-old Chukwuemeka, who was an unused substitute last night, posted two fire emojis. Also,18-year-old Chelsea academy player Hutchinson responded with the caption “peak”.

Chalobah is a brilliant example to the young developing players at Stamford Bridge that there is a genuine path into the side.

He’s had to earn his place this campaign after a breakout year last season, but his form in recent weeks means he won’t be easily budged now he’s slotted into Potter’s XI.

These kinds of European performances are becoming the norm for him.

Chukwuemeka is starting to get opportunities on the pitch now, so let’s hope to see him and Chalobah line up in the same starting XI in the near future.

As for Hutchinson, he’s been in sensational goalscoring form for the academy side. It’s frustrating that he’s not eligible to face Dinamo Zagreb next week, which from the outside looked like a great chance to hand him a first-team debut at the club.
