Brown’s Playoff-securing goal hints at huge future for Chelsea youngster

Amid the excitement of a six-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea fans may have overlooked a huge performance from one of their lesser-famed players last night in the form of Izzy Brown.

The attacking midfielder has spent the season on loan in the Championship, firstly with Rotherham and then signing for Huddersfield in January, and netted a vital winning goal for the latter club against Wolves last night to secure their place in this season’s hotly anticipated Playoffs.

But as our infographic shows, that was by no means the 20-year-old’s only contribution. He had a further three efforts at goal, one of which also hit the target, laid on three chances for his team-mates and weighed in defensively with three tackles – very impressive for an attacking player.

There is still an inevitable inconsistency to Brown’s game, however, highlighted by his six unsuccessful touches – the second-most of any Huddersfield player after striker Nahki Wells. So, Chelsea fans, is the youngster ready for first-team football at his parent club next season or should he be sent out on loan?
