Some experts claim you’re never more than six people away from a Chelsea youth player.
Particularly when you consider 1246 of them (rough estimate) are currently out on loan all over the world.
But one of them, Charly Musonda, has just done something many Blues fans never thought a club youth product would achieve.
He’s scored on his debut.
Ask any Chelsea fans and Musonda is the player they’ve been most keen to see break the habit at Stamford Bridge and actually see some first-team action.
The 20-year-old lit up the Blues’ Under-18 side but then asked to leave in January 2016 after a lack of opportunities under Jose Mourinho.
He spent last season on loan at Real Betis but appears to have come back west London hungrier and more determined to make an impression.
The hard work paid off too, notching on what is his full debut against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Musonda picked up a neat through ball from Cesc Fabregas before firing unerringly past the Forest ‘keeper to make it 3-0 on the night before half time.
And didn’t he look absolutely delighted.
The Belgian star ran off to the corner and collapsed in an emotional heap on the floor while the Blues’ faithful chanted his name from the stands.
Dream come true.
