Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has sang the praise of Trevoh Chalobah following an awesome performance against Crystal Palace.
The former Manchester United defender admitted that he was pleased with the defending of the young centre-back, and he also admitted Chelsea have a quality squad capable of fighting for the title.
Speaking on the FIVE YouTube channel, former Manchester United and England defender Ferdinand said: “That result wasn’t a shock for me because Crystal Palace are in a mad rebuild under Patrick Vieira, and good luck to him by the way.
“That game was a gimme for Chelsea. The big thing for me is Trevoh Chalobah. I watched him in the Super Cup game, I was massively impressed with him and the way he defended.
“He had three or four big moments, defensively, when he pulled the hat out of the bag. He then comes up with a goal at the weekend.
“To see the emotion in a young player like that, it just reinforces that this is still a beautiful game.
“They have got a deep squad, that’s the thing with Chelsea. We talk about Manchester United’s array of talent but Chelsea are the same.
“Thomas Tuchel has got to pick from Lukaku, Werner, Havertz, Mount, Ziyech, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, that’s seven players all worthy of playing in those positions.”
