'Baffling how good he is': Some fans blown away by their Chelsea loanee's display last night, he was voted MOTM
Huddersfield Town supporters on social media were once again left dazzled by the performance of their on-loan Chelsea gem Levi Colwill.
The teenager starred in the Terrier’s 1-0 Championship away win at Nottingham Forest last night.
He was voted Sky Bet’s Man-of-the-Match for an all-encompassing defensive display.
According to WhoScored.com, the centre-back made three clearances, blocked two shots and completed a tackle.
Colwill also attempted more passes (44) than any of his teammates, with an accuracy of 79.6%.
This exhibition at the City Ground confirmed his status as a top-level Championship player and one destined for the Premier League.
Huddersfield fans would certainly share this view, as they continue to revel in the 18-year-old’s mature showings in their shirt.
Here’s how they reacted to Colwill’s latest recital:
Levi-ing the dream
Ever since Colwill traded South West London for West Yorkshire over the summer, he has grown in stature.
He begins the new year with 20 appearances for Huddersfield and eight clean sheets.
Not to mention a last-minute match-winner against Sheffield United in October.
His efforts have helped Carlos Corberan’s team gradually creep up the table into the promotion places.
Case for Colwill at Chelsea
If Colwill can help the side regain their place in the first division, he will surely have an almighty decision to make ahead of next season.
Stick with the group that gave him his opportunity in senior football, or return to Chelsea and chase a childhood dream.
Of course, the latter probably sounds more appealing.
Especially as Thomas Tuchel is set to lose at least one of his key defenders, which should open up a space in the squad for someone to fill.
As Antonio Rudiger, a left-sided centre-half, is the one most likely to leave, his replacement could well be Colwill, a left-sided, left-footed centre-half.
The pieces are there, Tuchel just needs to prize them together.
