Chris Sutton says Chelsea 24-year-old looks at home on the Champions League stage

Chris Sutton has claimed that Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell looks suited to the Champions League stage.

With the league season over, the Blues supporters are now facing the agonising wait until this weekend’s all-english Champions League final against Manchester City.

Pundit and ex-Bleus forward Sutton has been impressed with how Chilwell’s looked in European football. 

Chilwell, 24, is in most people’s predicted XIs for the Champions League final.

The £50million defender played in both legs of the quarter-finals and semi-finals, plus his form of late has been excellent/

He’s got the slight edge in the left-back pecking order by the looks of it ahead of teammate Marcos Alonso. Chelsea’s boss Thomas Tuchel has shown he looks to rotate at times.

“He has looked at home when competing against the best in the Champions League. I’m excited to see how he handles the Euros, either as a conventional left back or left wing back,” Sutton wrote for the Daily Mail

Ben Chilwell’s Chelsea move justified by Champions League final

Chilwell received a lot of stick for ditching Leicester City last summer for Stamford Bridge. However, the decision looks vindicated as he prepares for a Champions League final. 

Leicester look like they’re here to stay when it comes to competing with the big boys in England, especially as they got the better of Chelsea in the FA Cup final earlier this month. 

England international Chilwell has been the perfect fit though for Chelsea since day one.

He’s adjusted seamlessly to the left wing-back position, scoring four goals and setting up seven assists across all competitions this season.
