‘I think it’s Messi…’ – Chelsea fans on Twitter excited after club post

The Chelsea fans were delighted with the late impact of Willian in the Transfer Tavern on Saturday evening.

Just as Antonio Conte looked set to taste his first Premier League defeat in 5 matches, Willian stepped up to produce an outrageous chip to level proceedings at Anfield. His finish was surely intended as a back-post cross, regardless of the Brazillian’s post-match comments in which he claimed the effort was intended as a shot.

However, there was no doubt about the intention of Chelsea’s 17-year-old talent Callum Hudson-Odoi’s finish for the development squad on Saturday.

The Ghanaian collected the ball just inside his own half before embarking on a startling run that Lionel Messi would have been immensely proud of.

A clip containing the mesmerising goal from Odoi was shared on Chelsea’s official Twitter page on Sunday.

Odoi raced into the opponents half with purpose and power, skipped beyond the challenges of three bamboozled opponents before striding past the goalkeeper and placing the ball into the empty net.

The strike has deservedly caught the attention of plenty of Chelsea fans on Twitter who are pondering if they’ve just laid their eyes on the next Eden Hazard.

With Chelsea’s youth policy currently a familiar theme in the media, it is no surprise to see plenty of fans predicting the future of their young talent.

Here’s what the fans had to say about Odoi’s moment of magic on Twitter…
