Ah, Trevoh Chalobah. Big Trev, as I like to call him.

Do you?

Yes, as of just now.

OK, super.

I also like the rhyming thing that’s going on.

What rhyming thing?

Rising star, Chalobah…

Mmhm, lovely. Trev, or Trevoh, seems to be following the HarryKane blueprint.

How so?

Go out on loan loads, go off the radar, then suddenly make a splash in your parent club’s first team.

Where’s he been on loan?

For the past three seasons he’s been at Ipswich, Huddersfield and Lorient respectively.

Lorient? Is that the cool new way of saying Leyton Orient?

No, Ligue 1 side, based in Brittany.

Chelsea graduates Reece James and Trevoh Chalobah both found the net against Juventus.


Yes, I knew that.

You’ll also know that he notched his first-ever goal in the Champions League this week, blasting in the first of four that Chelsea scored against Juventus. He got the UEFA player of the match award too.

He must have been pleased.

Yep. He’s been at the club since he was eight, to be fair. He said afterwards, “It meant a lot. When I was a young kid, I used to watch the Champions League. To now be involved and getting a goal is very emotional.”

Thomas Tuchel should take some credit for promoting him too.

Agreed. Apparently it was his form in pre-season that did it. Tuchel has said, “If he continues to stay humble with both feet on the ground and living up to his dream, he's on a good road.”

Quality, well-laid tarmac will be key.

Too literal.
