Has Chelsea Finally Found The Centre Back They've Been Dreaming Of?

Chelsea bounced back to winning ways as they dispatched off a resurgent Southampton side 3-1 at Stamford brigde in their Premeir league matchday 7 fixture yesterday.

Prior to their win against Soton yesterday, the Stamford Bridge based outfit had lost their last 2 successive matches across all competitions, however the introduction of Trevor Chelobah in the centre back role would prove a masterclass from gaffer Thomas Tuchel as the promising defender was phenomenal against Southampton yesterday.

The young prospect was outstanding against Soton as he remained solid in the blues defense line throughout the match as he made crucial interceptions & tackles to deny the Saints opportunities to score. He was also in the scoresheet as he notched in the blues opener to register his 2nd goal in 4 PL appearances for the Chelsea this season.

Trevor Chelobah, 22, has already proved he can be relied on to ensure Chelsea remain rock solid in defense as well as get in the end of set pieces & score, hence he could be the long term solution to the blues centre back woes, with Thiago Silva, 37, slowly approaching the end of his football career.
