Chelsea’s young American steals the show and shows himself ready for loan stage

Chelsea’s development squad  gave MK Dons a beating in the Checkatrade trophy last night, and while Michy Batshuayi got a lot of the credit – not least for scoring twice 24 hours after playing for the senior team – there was another more surprising choice as man of the match for many  people.

Kyle Scott has been training with the first team all season, but was somewhat supplanted by the arrival of Ethan Ampadu, who stole the couple of starts and sub appearances that the American born midfielder could otherwise have had.

But he ran the show yesterday, and that might be enough to convince Antonio Conte to give him a chance.

Chelsea fans on Twitter who saw the game – which wasn’t many, let’s face it – were raving about his performance, which saw him cover tons of ground in midfield and pick up an assist for Michy Batshuayi.

A January loan could be the best move for the 19 year old.
