‘Should start in the final’ – Chelsea fans are full of praise for 23-year-old after FA Cup clash

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were hoping for the best on Sunday, with their side taking on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final.

The tournament has been good to Chelsea over the years, with the Blues winning it a handful of times since the arrival of Roman Abramovich, but they’ve struggled over the last few years, with a final loss coming last season.

They’ve now got an opportunity to make that right, though, with Antonio Conte’s men securing a 2-0 win against Southampton on Sunday – earning them a spot in the FA Cup final as a result.

Chelsea will be hoping to end the season well, with a trophy able to add a bit of extra shine to an otherwise disappointing season.

It was a decent performance from the Blues, but it’s fair to say that one man has earned more praise than most.

Emerson Palmieri has hardly played since moving to Stamford Bridge, but owing to a suspension to Marcos Alonso, the Italian got his chance against the Saints.

He duly delivered on all fronts, too, with a brilliant display both defensively and offensively proving to be useful for the Blues.

During and after the game, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to discuss the performance, and it’s fair to say that they are full of praise for him.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
