‘What a player’, ‘Needs more opportunities’ – Chelsea fans excited about teenager after FA Cup win


Chelsea required penalties to beat Norwich City in an FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday night, after a 1-1 scoreline failed to separate the sides after extra time.

The Blues struggled to put their Championship opposition away, despite having chances, after Michy Batshuayi opened the scoring shortly after half-time.

Antonio Conte’s side were punished in injury time when Jamal Lewis popped up to score his first senior goal to equalise the tie.

Supporters were relieved to finally get themselves through the fixture but were generally frustrated with the lacklustre performance from the reigning Premier League champions.

One player they were quick to praise was teenager Ethan Ampadu, who was making just his fifth appearance of the season. The 17-year-old produced a composed performance in defence before being substituted with the scoreline still 1-0.

Fans believe he has a massive future in the game and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his contribution on Wednesday night…

Ethan Ampadu played again very well for his young age, only 18yo or 17yo I don't remember. But he has a future in Chelsea. We have to keep him absolutely and Conte has to give more opportunites to play. #CFC

Ethan Ampadu is the new Nathan Ake ... Similarities to Nathaniel Chalobah too ... Hope Conte shows more trust in him than his predecessors and he's given more opportunities in the first team ... #CFC

Ethan Ampadu reads the game well beyond his years. Love how he steps out of defense to make a critical interception when the situation requires it. Impressed more every time I see him play. #CHENOR #CFC
