Man of the Match: There were several contenders for this honor in Chelsea’s win over Norwich last night, however, Bertrand Traore stood up for me. The youngster showed immense level of maturity and understanding while linking up with his teammates.
His approach play was better than most of the Chelsea wide players this season. He looked a threat every time going forward, and above everything, his ability to sense danger and react was second to none.
