Some Chelsea fans hail Trevoh Chalobah display in Southampton win

‘Extraordinary at both ends’: Some Chelsea fans amazed by defender’s performance in 3-1 win

Chelsea beat Southampton 3-1 today in a thriller at Stamford Bridge – and some Blues fans on Twitter were left singing the praises of their star Trevoh Chalobah. 

Chelsea moved to the top of the Premier League table after earning three points in the home win over the Saints. 

First of all, Blues defender Chalobah put the hosts ahead early in the first half. The 22-year-old arrived at the far post unmarked from a corner kick to head the ball into the net, netting his second goal of the season.

Southampton skipper James Ward-Prowse equalised from the penalty spot on the hour mark for the visitors before being shown a straight red card.

Chelsea’s eventually capitalised on their man advantage in the latter stages by scoring twice in the final 10 minutes. Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell clinched the league win by each scoring.

Thomas Tuchel’s side could remain top of the league during the international break depending on the Liverpool v Manchester City result tomorrow.

Chelsea fans loved Chalobah display against Southampton

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media say Chalobah was a standout individual against the Saints. 

The English centre-half caught the eye as the right-sided defender in the back-three, with Cesar Azpiliceuta operating ahead of him at wing-back. 

His goal will take the headlines from his performance, but overall he stood firm defensively against a strong opposition in the second half.

Chalobah continues to impress 

Of course, Chalobah isn’t gong to be a nailed-on starter every week given the competition for places in defence.

However, he’s barely put a foot wrong when given a chance this season.

He once again stepped into the starting line-up today without any problems and his opening goal was so crucial for the team.

There can be little doubt now he’s another massive talent to come out of the academy at Cobham.

Here are some Blues fans hailing Chalobah:
