Jermaine Jenas was clearly captivated by Mykhailo Mudryk’s debut for Chelsea against Liverpool on Saturday.

Typing on Twitter, Jenas reacted to the Ukrainian’s first outing for his new club at Anfield.

Mudryk was given just over half an hour by Graham Potter to present his talents to the Premier League yesterday.

The 22-year-old replaced Lewis Hall in the second-half with Chelsea pushing to find a breakthrough in the tight encounter.

Although the new signing was unable to swing the result in his side’s favour, he showed flashes of what fans can expect to see more of in future.

He was brilliant with the ball at his feet, and showed lightening speed that evidently scared the Liverpool back-line.

His brief cameo was certainly encouraging to say the least, one that captured the compliments of many who watched the attacker in full-flow.

Mudryk makes debut for Chelsea against Liverpool

‘I think Arsenal should have found a way to pay the money for Mudryk. Jheeze he looks like a player’ wrote Jenas mid-way through Mudryk’s performance.

Mikel Arteta’s employers may have tuned in to watch the forward’s display against Liverpool, just to see what they could’ve harnessed had Chelsea not beaten them to the punch.

Todd Boehly and his team managed to secure Mudryk’s services ahead of their London rivals earlier this month, despite the Gunners largely looking like favourites to make the signing.

Arsenal will have the chance to get on over their missed target at the end of April, when Potter’s men make the short trip across town to the Emirates.
