Following a massive 3-1 victory over Southampton, two Chelsea players made it into Garth Crooks BBC team of the week.

Goals from Trevoh Chalobah, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell got Chelsea the victory, but it was the performance of Chalobah and skipper Cesar Azpilicueta that caught the eyes of Garth Crooks.

Crooks was also full of praise for Chalobah’s performance as the BBC pundit said: “I’m always fascinated by defenders who have a genuine appetite for goals.

“Trevoh Chalobah scored a cracker against Crystal Palace earlier in the season but his goal against Southampton was particularly interesting.

“His movement away from the ball on the set-piece was instinctive. He knew exactly where the ball was going to fall. Most defenders know how to attack the ball especially in the air but few know how to read where it is likely drop in order to apply a timely finish. Chalobah does.”
