English Premier League giant, Chelsea FC were in action yesterday in their 10th league game of the current campaign away from home against Thomas Frank led Brentford team at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Chelsea in the game gave a good fighting spirit but were stunned by the host who held them to hostage and as such shared the spoil thereby secured just a point that got them moved to the third spot on the table.

The Blues despite the disappointing result of the night were able to maintain a seven game unbeaten streaks so far under the English tactician, Graham Potter across all competitions with a record of five wins and two draws in that run.

Chelsea summer signing and former Aston Villa star, Carney Chukwuemeka was handed a role to play in the second half of the game after starting from the bench due to tactical reason but was introduced in the 62nd minute for Mason Mount which was his second ever appearance for the Blues since completing his summer move, after he was given his first which was a long awaited debut in their league game against Wolverhampton Wanderer.

Carney Chukwuemeka was brilliant off the bench as he was clinical at the heart of the centre-field after his introduction thereby repaid the faith Graham Potter had to bring him in not just for consolation minutes.

He did pretty well for the visitor with his impactful minutes spent on the pitch of play which made him looked like a good player fit for the Premier League as well as a key prospect for the Blues.

After the game, Graham Potter could not but praised the Nigerian-descent and young midfield maestro as revealed by highly respected Italian Sport Journalist Fabrizio Romano with a post via his verified Twitter handle.

“He is a big powerful boy that can run a lot. Yes I really like him. He is a young player but he’s got exciting attributes, so we just need to help him reach his potential”.

He will then be hoping to keep his impressive run of form going in their next game as they continue their pursuit in the competition.
