Chelsea deservedly beat Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, moving themselves to within a point of both the Red Devils and Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League table.
In a typically cagey match, it was an Alvaro Morata header that was enough to separate the two sides with Jose Mourinho unable to inspire his side to an effective attacking performance.
The Blues looked pretty comfortable throughout with United rarely threatening until going behind and the Chelsea defence keeping things locked down even when the visitors found themselves in the final third.
At the heart of that defence was young Andreas Christensen, who put in a terrific performance to keep the likes of Romelu Lukaku very quiet indeed.
The 21-year-old drew plenty of plaudits with supporters who are dubbing him the future of the Chelsea defensive line.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Not selling or loan out Andreas Christensen this season is the best decision we've ever made. #CFC

Forget what is happening with Luiz, Christensen is deserving to start on merit. Has been excellent so far and today was no exception #cfc
