Chelsea fans impressed by performance from on-loan Ethan Ampadu at Sheffield United

Ethan Ampadu helped Sheffield United earn a shock win at Old Trafford on Wednesday night – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter praised the display from the on-loan Blues star after watching him in action.

Ampadu moved to Bramall Lane on a season-long loan at the beginning of the campaign and has been playing for a side rock bottom of the Premier League table. 

The versatile 20-year-old has mainly been used in a midfield position, but has dropped into a centre-back role in recent weeks. 

He played in midweek during Sheffield United’s 2-1 away win against second-placed Man United. 

The Wales international got the upper hand in his individual battle with Mason Greenwood, as well as putting his body on the line and looking a physical presence in the back three.

A selection of Blues supporters on social media were massively impressed with Ampadu’s contribution for Sheffield United. 

It’s certainly not been a vintage loan so far, but the youngster is a nailed-on starter for Chris Wilder’s team.

He’s looking far more reliable at centre-half and will be hoping to be part of a Sheffield Untied team that tries to pull off a great escape to avoid relegation.

One Blues fan suggested Ampadu could be a great fit under new Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, who deployed a three at the back system last night during his first game in charge in the 0-0 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
