For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, youth development needs to be a priority at Stamford Bridge…
The Blues academy is full of talent, and they’ve been prolific when it comes to winning trophies, so they’re clearly good enough to make the grade.
Fortunately, Antonio Conte seemingly is ready to change things up and afford opportunities to a few young players, notably 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu.
The midfielder has impressed since moving to the club from Exeter, and his performances have clearly caught the attention of Antonio Conte.
Now, the Italian has revealed his plans to include him in his squad to face Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup, cueing wild celebrations in the Transfer Tavern.
Fans are desperate to see him in action, and it’s a very similar tale amongst the Chelsea fans on Twitter. See what they’ve been talking about below…
Charly Musonda, Ethan Ampadu, Christensen, Zappacosta and HAZARD should play!!!!! #CFC

Pretty sure Ampadu won't feature tomorrow, would be good to get a decent idea of the kid could be capable of… #CFC

I doubt he'll even be on the bench but it would be amazing if Ethan Ampadu made his debut tomorrow #CFC
