Trevoh Chalobah continued his fine run of form back in the Chelsea team with an assured performance against AC Milan last night.
After a dominant 3-0 win against the Serie A champions seven days ago, they followed it up with an equally affirmative 2-0 victory at the San Siro.
Following an injury to Wesley Fofana last week, Chalobah has started back-to-back games for Chelsea, only his second and third of the season.
With the pair of victories and clean sheets, the 23-year-old’s sensational record continued of not losing a game he has started for the Blues.
The number has now reached 28 games, stretching back to the beginning of last season.
He made his Chelsea debut in the Premier League against Crystal Palace, scoring a brilliant goal to cap off an emotional and impressive afternoon.
Chalobah unbeaten as Chelsea starter
Some of his best performances have actually come on the biggest stages possible. That has been shown by the two displays against Milan in crucial Champions League games.
However, his finest hours on the pitch are likely the two domestic cup finals last season against Liverpool, where he performed impeccably despite coming out on the losing side.
Chalobah appears to be firmly in Graham Potter’s plans as of now, after not featuring in his opening two games in charge.
There had been reports over the international break that the former Brighton man was considering utilising the 23-year-old in midfield.
With his passing ability never in doubt, it could be seen that a more defensive minded option in midfield could be a strong option.
However, it looks like he will be required at the back for the next few weeks, with the fixtures continuing to come thick and fast through October.
Despite the loss of Fofana, Potter will feel confident playing Chalobah in the upcoming games based on his performances so far.
