Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah has been a revelation this season, as the 22-year-old is yet to put a foot wrong since making his debut in the Super Cup victory over Villarreal.

The academy product has even gotten back to back starts for the Blues, and his confidence under Thomas Tuchel has been soaring.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin was particularly impressed with the performance of the young centre-back, as he got another start against Manchester United and put in a very solid display.

According to Pat Nevin, Chalobah is as good as any striker that he comes up against.

Pat Nevin wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “Watching Trevoh Chalobah suddenly ‘know’ he is as good as any top international striker he comes up against in a one-v-one is a joy to behold,’ Nevin told Chelsea’s website.

“Yes, his goals have helped boost his confidence but surely not as much as his manager’s belief in him and his encouragement.”
