Malang Sarr showed Thomas Tuchel enough in his various cup appearances to go from spare start to occasional starter, and today he got a go in the Premier League.
He wasn’t able to keep a clean sheet, and wasn’t as comfortable as the players ahead of him in the pecking order would be, but he did a solid job.
It’s another appearance chalked up, and after the game Chelsea TV asked him if he feels a proper part of the squad now.
“I can feel it,” he had to admit.
