Okay, there’s one thing, amidst the consistent horrible performances from the Blues, there’s a positive thing that has come out of it. Yes, I am talking about Kurt Zouma, Robert Kenedy and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Kurt Zouma, in the absence of John Terry, has been brilliant for the Blues so far. The 20-year-old Frenchman has been one of the shining spots in the Blues defense. Meanwhile, Robert Kenedy, who came on for last 25 minutes against Crystal Palace, is another player who impressed in his short cameo.
Jose Mourinho talking about the trio was happy with their performances and had the following to say:
“This is about the young players working and coming in and using the opportunities they have to improve and show their qualities.
“I have beautiful young eggs in Kenedy, in Ruben and in Zouma. If you look at the game all of these young eggs did well. Zouma – great personality, great game. Kenedy changed the game and gave a different intensity and a different quality. Ruben was fine too.
“I’m not saying they are ready and they can be consistent and play every game. I am saying these young guys have good talent. Zouma with the experience of the last season has reached a fantastic level for a 20-year-old. Kenedy and Ruben, these kinds of boys, are players with very good talent.”

I was particularly impressed with Kurt Zouma and Robert Kenedy’s performance against Palace. As Mourinho said, Zouma, with the experience of last season, has already become good enough to start for us every game. Meanwhile, we hope to see more of Kenedy in the coming few fixtures because the Brazilian looks like the real deal!
Let’s see what the future holds for them!
