Several Chelsea youngsters including Nathan Ake played alongside Cesc Fabregas in our 4-0 FA Cup win against Brentford on Saturday.
Fabregas was impressed with the performance of 21-year-old Nathan Ake who played the left wingback position for Chelsea.
“Fantastic by Ake,” Fabregas said when asked to rate Ake’s performance.
“Since I have been here, he has trained with the team in preseason and I have always felt that he is a fantastic young player.
“It is great that all of the young players showed what they can do in games like this and also winning which is important for getting confidence because it is not easy.
“We are only playing in the Premier League and the FA Cup so it is not easy to have minutes in this team but it was good that a lot of them could have minutes in this game and show the manager what can happen if he needs them.”
