After watching Chelsea’s Levi Colwill perform, Alan Shearer was really impressed.
On Monday night, Chelsea defeated Fulham 2-0 for their second Premier League victory of the year and a vital road triumph.
The Blues now have a spring in their step as they head to Burnley on Saturday afternoon for the last game before the break.
Levi Colwill, a 20-year-old rookie for Chelsea, continued his streak of starting every league game this year against Fulham.
The adaptable defender had an excellent game at left-back, contributing a wonderful through-ball assist for Mykhailo Mudryk’s goal.
Shearer made the choice to select the young players from Chelsea in his Premier League Team of the Week segment.
He posted on the Premier League’s official website: “Levi Colwill (Chelsea). a precise long pass over the top that helped Mykhailo Mudryk score his opening goal. Great left-back display.
Whether Colwill starts at left or center back for Chelsea at the moment, he seems to be a lock to start.
When Gareth Southgate names his Three Lions squad, we predict that he will have once again proven himself worthy of receiving another senior call-up from England. He should be able to play this time, earning his first cap.
According to talkSPORT (9:58pm, 2 October), Danny Murphy called Colwill a “beautiful footballer” after Colwill’s performance for Fulham.
It’s clear that this Chelsea team is still figuring out how to score more goals and dismantle rival defenses. One consolation is that the backline continues to appear to be rather sturdy, with Colwill playing a crucial defensive role.
