The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were pleased with their side’s summer business…

A number of top players moved to Stamford Bridge over the summer months as Antonio Conte looked to improve his team after a stellar debut year in England.

One signing that has had the fans in the pub talking in recent weeks is Tiemoue Bakayoko. Having immediately become a fan favourite after playing through the pain barrier against Tottenham, big things are expected of the Frenchman, and Chelsea defender David Luiz appears confident that he will be a success at Chelsea.

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Luiz said: ‘He’s a great guy, a great person, great player. He’s a fantastic talent and for sure he’s going to give a lot of happiness to all the supporters of Chelsea”.

Luiz is, of course, well versed in knowing what the Frenchman can do, having played in Ligue 1 with PSG prior to moving back to Stamford Bridge.

He has made a good impression so far, and despite not guaranteeing his place in the first team, there’s no doubting that he will get there eventually.

A player with an engine to match N’Golo Kante, a duo between the French compatriots has left the fans in the Transfer Tavern in dreamland.

Landlord’s Verdict

Tiemoue Bakayoko has done everything right so far.

He has kept his head down, worked hard and turned up when it mattered – and his performance against Tottenham was absolutely fantastic.

The hard work is, of course, yet to come but he is in a fantastic place to succeed, and Luiz appears confident.
