It has been a huge season for young defender Andreas Christensen, and he’s already a fan favourite amongst the Chelsea fans in the world.
He has been, for the most part, incredibly solid for the Blues, and whilst he has made mistakes, he’s certainly not been the only – nor the youngest – player to have his struggles this season.
It’s easy to forget that he’s still an incredibly young player, although he’s officially one year older as of today – with the young Dane celebrating his 22nd birthday on April 10th.
His club have been celebrating the day over on their official Twitter page with a message to him.
Have a great day, Andreas! 🎉 pic.twitter.com/zbUQEjGBLz

In response to the message from Chelsea, in addition to vast swathes of well wishes from the Blues’ faithful, more than a few fans have been sending other messages to the young Dane.
What’s more, the overwhelming majority of them are very supportive. It hasn’t been the easiest season for him, as he adjusts to life in the English top flight, but supporters are clearly seeing past his deficiencies and looking at him for what he is – a player with incredible potential.
Take a look at what fans have been saying below…
We luv you…….all time chelsea fun😘😘

Happy Birthday Andreas! 🎂🎉 He's come under fire at times this season but I'm sure that he will improve and come back stronger next season. Only 21 so he has his entire career ahead of him. Plenty of time to get better. The @PremierLeague is not the easiest league in the world!
