Some Chelsea fans blown away by clip of teenager in training

'Star in the making': Some Chelsea fans blown away by what their 18-year-old's done in senior training today

Chelsea supporters on social media squealed with delight after coming across a video of Harvey Vale showcasing his skills in training.

The club cameras captured the 18-year-old scoring twice in a small side game, the first a neat turn on his left foot and finish with the right.

The teenager is now firmly in the eye-line of Thomas Tuchel ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup third round tie against Chesterfield.

He came off the bench during Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur, having the started in the previous round away to Brentford.

Vale is almost guaranteed a prominent role on Saturday, alongside several of his other academy graduates.

Anticipation amongst Blues fans must’ve risen to another level after seeing the midfielder’s mini highlight real.

Here’s how they reacted to Vale’s classy Cobham showing on Twitter:

Tomorrow’s cup contest should provide Vale another platform to broadcast his abilities to the watching world.

Quite literally, in fact, as the match is being shown live on the BBC.

Some may have missed the hour of football he managed against Brentford, or the fleeting cameo against Spurs.

But it will be hard to ignore the England Under-19 international when he inevitably dons the Chelsea shirt in just over 24 hours.

Vale is not the only talent to keep an eye out for, however.

Who else could be inolved vs Chesterfield?

Xavier Simons, Lewis Hall, and Charlie Webster also trained with Tuchel’s group ahead of the Chesterfield contest.

Hall and Webster are yet to make a senior appearance for the Blues, whilst Simons was a starter alongside Vale in the Carabao Cup quarter final.

Big things are expected of these young men; it’s time for them to take the initial leap.
