Will almost certainly make it with a name like that
His father who he's named after was one of Zambia's finest attacking midfielders ever. Shame he's not representing Zambia

Lemmy has forsaken us....
Luckily most of our best are in long term prosperous loan deals currently. Will allow Conte some time to evaluate them.
Surely to hell Christensen gets a crack at breaking into the team next season, considering Terry, Zouma and Ivanovic, probably Musonda too, depending on attacking midfield moves. Maybe he stays at Betis a season longer, if they stay up?

Christensen loan is 2 years and we cant recall him.

Musonda should stay next year and continue developing in a stable environment with a manager who trusts him.

Ahhh, I thought Christensen was a one year loan. Agreed with you on Musonda, so far the Betis loan is working wonders, another full season would probably do him the power of good, rather than trying to get minutes behind Hazard, Pedro, Willian and co.

I think its a good decision to let him stay longer. If he is progressing well and getting games then its all good. He also speaks spanish and seems genuinely happy. The fans love him, he gets to play in a top league every week, its a great environment for him.

Aka and Musonda were both 15 when they joined Chelsea.
They may have agreed to sign at 15 but they can't have joined until 16 since its illegal to sign players from another country under the age of 16 unless the family moves to the country for non football reasons

Will probably never make it at Chelsea anyways?
So hard to judge now. If we keep hold of Hazard we'll again have 3-4 very good players for him to compete with. He won't play ahead of Hazard or Willian, surely, and Pedro has been much better recently. Then there's Kenedy.

Do you think he has a future in his 'new role' as a LB?

Hope not, because he's certainly not a defender. He's a winger who can play there if necessary.

Was a bit quieter this game. Made a lot of good runs and had some decent balls that opened up Granada. He was fouled every time he even went past a player though.

This means nothing for his potential success at Chelsea. We should know by now that the club will be more than happy to sell him for a 30+ mil. figure. We ditched a player previously just for him to become immediately Bundesliga player of the season. This Chelsea academy is a money making scheme more than anything else. And it works.

We ditched De Bruyne because Mourinho didn't want him. Any other manager and he would be playing for us now.

What a shame. Wasn't he one of the best dribblers in La Liga when he played for Betis?

Thought this would be a bump for his testimonial.

Abou Diaby vibes unfortunately.

I'm desperate for him to make it back. So sad to see what he's had to deal with. He seems to be a strong minded fella.

He'll come back eventually. His days with us are over though, Holland or Portugal would be a good move, or the championship
