Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Andreas Christensen, N’Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata could lead the Blues to glory in a near future: “At Stamford Bridge we know the importance of a good core to a team – he said – Terry, Lampard and Drogba were not too bad for that, were they?”.
“It is not a case of comparing those three at the weekend with the aforementioned club legends; that would be grossly unfair, but in that Alvaro is 25, N’Golo is 26, both coming into their primes, and Andreas at 21 has over a decade at the top in front of him, there is the possibility this could be the start of something special and something very long-term as well.”
About Alvaro Morata, Nevin added: “Three United centre-backs working together couldn’t get close to dealing with him”.
“The other part of that core which must be applauded right away is of course Andreas Christensen. – he added – A more assured confident and mature performance you will rarely see from a 21-year-old defender”.
