Carabao Cup: What a performance – John Terry hails Chelsea star after defeat to Man City
Chelsea legend John Terry has singled out youngster Lewis Hall for praise after the Blues’ Carabao Cup 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Terry took to his Twitter handle to laud Hall for his brilliant first-half performance against Manchester City.
Hall made his second senior start for Chelsea against Pep Guardiola’s side on Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium.
He made 21 out of 27 accurate passes and registered two shots on target, with one he really should have converted.
The English youngster broke into the Man City box after dropping a shoulder to make space away from Rico Lewis.
However, the 18-year-old could only send his shot straight at the onrushing Manchester City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.
Despite this, Hall won six of seven ground duels and defended bravely during the encounter.
But two goals from Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez ensured the Premier League champions eliminated Graham Potter’s side from the Carabao Cup third round stage.
Reacting to Hall’s performance, Terry tweeted: “What a great first half performance from Lewis Hall.”
