Chelsea: Fans are loving latest youth star Ian Maatsen - Chelsea

Chelsea fans on Twitter are praising Ian Maatsen after the 17-year-old made his first-team debut on Wednesday night against Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup.

Maatsen came on in the second half as the Blues romped to a 7-1 victory and made quite the impression from the left-back position, with the Evening Standard highlighting how well he charged down the left flank.

And with Chelsea currently light in that area of the squad, Maatsen could be in line for more appearances before the end of October.

Emerson is set for a spell on the sidelines, with manager Frank Lampard confirming he will not be back from injury until after the upcoming international break.

As a result, that leaves Marcos Alonso as the only natural left-back in the squad that Maatsen has to compete against, giving the Chelsea academy product even more reason to be optimistic following his promising display versus Michael Jolley’s side.

And based on that very display, alongside his versatility, the Dutch teenager looks capable of bringing much to this Chelsea team.
