Tottenham were well beaten by RB Leipzig at the Tottenham Stadium on Wednesday night, as the Germans were by far the better team.
Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu who’s on loan to Leipzig had a fantastic game in this Champions League cracker, and the 19-year-old showed maturity beyond his age.
Ampadu has struggled for game time under Julian Nagelsmann, but the youngster was selected to start this game due to Dayot Upamecano’s suspension, and he impressed totally.
Out of 98 attempts, he completed 93 passes – more than anyone else – and also had more touches than anyone else.
Chelsea fans are now calling for Ampadu to be a part of the team next season.
One fan said: “Should definitely be in franks plans next year.”
Another Blue admitted: “This kid is the future.”
Another Chelsea fan tweeted: “Lads got a great future for our club.”
While another wrote: “He was unreal. Chelsea have a star on their hands if he continues these performances.”
A fifth admitted: “Can’t wait to see this boy back home.”
The Chelsea loanee showed tremendous character and resilience to hold his own despite suffering from cramps towards the end of the game, and made a crucial intervention in injury time to stop Steven Bergwijn from netting an equaliser.
