Chelsea fans stunned by 20-year-old Sensation at Stamford Bridge

In the FA Cup, Chelsea defeated Preston North End 4-0, and Alfie Gilchrist made his debut for the entire game.

Mauricio Pochettino has been paying attention to the fresh homegrown talent Chelsea has discovered—Alfie Gilchrist, who made his Chelsea debut against Preston North End—who has the ability to pull the crowd up from their seats.

The 20-year-old certainly displayed character when he was substituted in to finish the match against Crystal Palace, which led to his Premier League minutes against Luton; however, it was in the FA Cup against Preston that he truly proved he belonged.

In the second half, the Blues turned up the style to defeat Championship side Preston North End in the FA Cup. He won four of the six tackles he attempted and had a 96% passing accuracy. The victory was anticipated, but in a season where the lavishly assembled stars have taken center stage, fans are also taking notice of another homegrown gem.

Who can bet on Gilchrist being a fan favorite after a performance like that? Every great Chelsea team has a homegrown player whom the supporters are thrilled about.
