He’s pushing hard to start for Chelsea – Pat Nevin rules on Chukwuemeka
Chelsea legend, Pat Nevin, has given his verdict on the club’s summer signing, Carney Chukwuemeka.
Nevin said Chukwuemeka is pushing hard to start for Chelsea.
He said this ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League tie with RB Salzburg on Tuesday night.
One of the first things I look at when I see a new, but particularly a young, player come on, is how his teammates work with him. Do they trust him? Do they give him the ball in tight areas? Do they make runs, believing he has the quality to find them? Well, the answers were all yes, within seconds each time he came on, "Nevin was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying."
[Chukwuemeka’s] appearances have looked assured, and most Chelsea fans who have watched his cameos now know that he is pushing very hard for a start, maybe even before the month is out.”
Chukwuemeka was brought on twice to inject some pace and flair into Chelsea’s midfield in their last two games against Brentford and Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Chukwuemeka has been included in Chelsea’s Champions League squad to face RB Salzburg.
