‘Turning a corner’, ‘A new man’ – Chelsea fans delighted by £40m man despite defeat to Arsenal

Chelsea’s period of bad form continued on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup, after they were defeated 2-1 in the semi-final by Arsenal at the Emirates.

After victory against Brighton and Hove at the weekend, supporters were hoping that the Blues had turned a corner after a series of disappointing results but it was the Gunners who emerged victorious from the tie, heading into a final against Manchester City.

There were few positives for away fans from the 90 minutes but they did have praise for one star in particular despite the defeat.

Midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who was signed for a reported £40m last summer, has faced criticism this season for perceived poor performances but recently appears to be settling in better to first team action.
