Ethan Ampadu put his name in the history books at Chelsea on Tuesday night with this new achievement.
The Welshman is the first Chelsea player to appear in the Premier League in this millennium.
This is a great invididual tag for the 17-year-old to recieve and hopefully he can build on this recent appearance.
Ampadu squad omission is surprising
Many will believe that Ampadu has worked his way from the Chelsea academy. In fact, the player signed for the Blues in the summer from League Two side Exeter City.
When players like Nathaniel Chalobah and Nathan Ake left us, Ampadu has seized his opportunity of getting into Antonio Conte’s plans.
It’s been a great year for the defender who look so assured when replacing Andreas Christensen in the Huddersfield win. Ampadu recieved his senior debut for Wales in November and is making an early impression on the big stage.
