Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake was impressive against Tottenham in the semi-final of the FA Cup and many Chelsea fans were impressed with the assured play from the youngster.

Ex-Chelsea winger Pat Nevin believes Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will not think twice about starting him more often from now on.

“Maybe more surprising for some was the assured play from Nathan Ake on one of his rare starts for the club,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.

“Personally I had no fear whatsoever about him coming in for this one, but it still seemed like a breakthrough performance.

“I suspect Antonio will not think twice about starting him more often from now on.

“Nathan has grown in stature massively since his time at Bournemouth so what might have been considered an area that had to be thought carefully about over the summer might just slip down the order of importance, especially when you consider the imminent availability of Andreas Christensen as well.

“Nathan gives us other options as well at full-back, midfield and maybe even wing-back, but it would appear he is most at home just where he played at Wembley.”
