Manchester City’s Carabao Cup game against Chelsea started with a lot of intensity at Etihad. Manchester City dominated the first half but failed to score, while Chelsea also failed to take its “CLEAR” chances. In the second half, Manchester City scored two goals.
Well, fans have been talking about Chelsea’s improved performance, the performance of the youngsters, Pulisic’s display, Broja’s quiet game, and Ziyech’s performance on his return to the team, but this article will focus on why Lewis Hall’s performance suggests he can be trusted in Chilwell’s absence. Take a look!
1. The 18-year-old Defender Was Impressive.
One of Chelsea’s most impressive players against Manchester City was Lewis Hall. The 18-year-old played in an unfamiliar position as a left Wing-back, and he was still impressive.
The youngster was willing to take risks and it paid off. He made more progressive runs and moves than others players on the field.
Despite being 18 years old, Lewis Hall also added a lot to the attack and was unlucky to not score. He also showed great strength with his passing ability. Hence, all these qualities suggest that Lewis Hall can be trusted by Graham Potter in the absence of Chilwell.
