Chelsea youngster Trevoh Chalobah reflected on his first start and debut goal for the club in a recent interview.
The 22-year-old made his Premier League debut for the Blues against Crystal Palace on opening day and opened his account for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
Talk to Chelsea fc, Chalobah discussed his first goal at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “That was it since when I got here when I was eight, all of those memories came to mind, the loans and all the hard work I did and the sacrifices I made.
“It all came together and it was like ‘wow, I scored at Stamford Bridge’. It was unbelievable. It took at least a week to sink in.
It was an emotional celebration as Chalobah fell to his knees with his head in his hands after scoring Chelsea’s third goal against Crystal Palace on Matchday 1.
Thomas Tuchel made the decision to keep the youngster at the club, allowing Kurt Zouma to leave for West Ham as Chalobah passed the French defender in the pecking order.
With a missed deadline for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, Chalobah will look to make his mark and push for a first place in the squad under Thomas Tuchel.
