17-year-old Ampadu impresses at his debut, Conte: “Chance deserved”

Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu made his full first team debut in Carabao Cup 4th Round’s win over Everton after previously coming off the bench in the last round against Nottingham Forest.

The supporters were impressed with the 17-year-old, who played all 90 minutes and looked entirely composed in the game, and it appears he made the same impression on his manager, too.

“He’s 17 years old and played a good game,” Antonio Conte said about him.

“They deserve their chance and I am very happy. It was the answer I was waiting for.”

Ampadu is the first class 2000 to play for Chelsea first team, breaking a record for the club.
