It has been quite the turnaround for Kurt Zouma at Chelsea.
Last year, he was shipped out on loan to Everton and, although he impressed at times for Toffees, there was talk that he could leave Stamford Bridge permanently in the summer, per The Daily Mirror via The Daily Express.

However, like for so many others, the arrival of Frank Lampard has given him hope. So far this season, he has played in all but one of the Blues’ fixtures.
On Wednesday against Lille in the Champions League, he was once again in action. However, whilst the south-west London outfit were able to grab all three points at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy with a 2-1 victory, the Chelsea fans were not happy with the 24-year-old’s performance, and the 6 foot 2 defender was on the end of a fair amount of criticism in the aftermath of the encounter.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Lmao Zouma wasn’t solid all night. When compared to Fik, he looks like a Sunday league defender

Zouma is just not the player everyone thought he would be, No better than Tal Ben-Haim imo.

I’m sorry but we made a mistake in not selling Zouma to Everton this summer.
4th choice CB at the club, rather play Azpi (or have kept Ampadu even) than play him.

I 100% agree hes not good enough. I think we should hv kept ampadu really

Numerous big accounts here were saying he’s a baller. We shouldn’t sell him. Rubbish. He’s so horrible

FT: Lille 1-2 Chelsea
* Tomori, mistake aside, was amazing
* Kanté not fully fit but good to have back
* CHO was the game changer
* Kepa was really good for once
* Zouma our worst CB currently
* Zonal marking needs to go ASAP
* Mount pressing was great but faded

Zouma was terrible bruh considering all he’s exposure and seeing how a younger Tomori fared. Dude was jittery on the ball

Tomori is brilliant but Zouma is awful…
We need Rudiger or Christensen
