This morning, Chelsea had a gentle 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers. This was the match where coach Mauricio Pochettino trusted 19-year-old player Lesley Ugochukwu from the beginning and he did not disappoint.
This defensive midfielder played solidly and was scored 7.3 by statistical site Sofascore. He had 73 touches of the ball, completed 93% of passes and especially won 5 duels, along with 4 accurate tackles.
After the match, Lesley Ugochukwu took to Instagram to celebrate the win. Immediately, Malo Gusto praised his young teammate. He wrote: “It’s so powerful“.
Last summer, Chelsea spent 23 million pounds to sign Ugochukwu from Rennes. Speaking on the club’s official website last month, Ugochukwu admitted he used to follow John Obi Mikel as a child.
To date, one can see some similarities between Ugochukwu and Mikel. However, he will have to put in more effort to compete with seniors like Moises Caicedo or Enzo Fernandez.
