Chelsea fans excited by Ampadu potential

Ethan Ampadu made his Premier League debut for Chelsea during the club’s clash with Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium earlier this month.

The 17-year-old came off the bench in the 80th minute of his team’s 3-1 win as he added to the two EFL Cup appearances that he has made during the 2017-18 campaign.

The teenager, who is capable of playing in both defence and midfield, made his Wales debut against France last month, and is being tipped to be a future star.

Ampadu was signed from Exeter City in the summer with the view to joining Chelsea’s academy system, but has already made a serious impression on the first team, and indeed the club’s supporters.

The Blues will attempt to book their spot in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup when they welcome Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, and the Chelsea fans are desperate for the youngster to be given more football.

It would be fair to say that there is a lot of excitement surrounding the outstanding youngster. A selection of the best Twitter reaction can be found below:
