Chelsea fans were fawning over Tariq Lamptey after the teenager scored a brace in the development squad’s 3-2 defeat away to Walsall last night.
The 19-year-old opened the scoring in just the third minute of the game as he slotted into an empty net after a cross from Marc Guehi (via Chelsea).
He then doubled the side’s lead just seven minutes later when he fired in after a pass from Tino Anjorin.
The Ghanaian has been in superb form for the club’s development squad this season, making 16 appearances, scoring one goal and assisting a further two in all competitions. It has seen him earn a call up to the first-team squad as he sat on the bench in the 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup (via Transfermarkt).
Fans were lavishing the youngster with praise after his goalscoring performance as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful:
