‘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…
