Chelsea’s official vine profile have just published their goal of the season from the last campaign.
No it wasn’t Samuel Eto’o’s first in Chelsea 6-0 thumping of Arsenal, or Demba Ba’s opener in the crucial victory at Anfield.
The winner of the goal of the season award was Under-21 player Lewis Baker, and a glance below will show why.
The midfielder has yet to make a Premier League appearance for the club but has already captained his country at Under-20 level.
Baker had a phenomenal season for the Chelsea Under-21s last season, which led to Mourinho bringing him with the senior squad during the summer’s per-season tour.
The Chelsea manager said of some of the young players at the club:
‘My conscience tells me that if, for example, Baker, Brown, and Solanke are not national team players in a few years, I should blame myself’.
If this goal is anything to go by, we should expect big things from Baker too.
