'Gets better every game', 'Superb': Some Chelsea fans loved their player's display in 2-0 win over Spurs
Chelsea recorded yet another win over Tottenham in today’s Premier League match between the London clubs – and some Blues fans on Twitter hailed the performance from their defender Malang Sarr.
The Blues beat rivals Spurs for a fourth time this season across all competitions, securing a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
First of all, Hakim Ziyech broke the deadlock early in the second half with a stunning left-footed effort from outside of the box. Thiago Silva added a second just eight minutes later after glancing on from a free-kick.
Thomas Tuchel’s side consolidated third place in the division table with three points, as they managed their first win in the league since Boxing Day.
There is now a break from league action for the Blues until 19 February, with attention turning to the FA Cup and Club World Cup competitions.
Chelsea fans applaud Sarr
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe Sarr was outstanding for them against Spurs.
Sarr, who turned 23 today, slotted into the left-back position in a back four.
The versatile French defender popped up with some impressive moments in his own box, including an excellent header to clear a cross.
He’s played 10 games now across all competitions this season and is definitely growing into his role as a first-team player at the Bridge.
With Ben Chilwell ruled out injured for the rest of the season, it looks like the promising youngster could provide serious competition for teammate Marcos Alonso in the full-back position.
Here are some Chelsea fans applauding Sarr’s latest individual performance.
