THE chant from the Matthew Harding stand stated all of it.
Moments after Callum Wilson had blown his golden alternative towards the membership that plans to pursue him in January, Bournemouth’s hitman clattered into Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Tongue firmly in cheek, the Chelsea trustworthy sung: “We don’t need you any extra.”
However whereas Wilson might not have proven the goalscoring skill that has seen Maurizio Sarri and his males present curiosity, there was much more to love.
Stamford Bridge hasn’t seen a striker play with such aggression and energy for the reason that heady days of Diego Costa. How they miss him now.
Substitute Alvaro Morata will eternally be in comparison with the bullish type of Costa, and he’ll at all times fall flat.
After 18 months in west London, the £60million man has didn’t fulfil expectation and Chelsea have given up hope.
A seek for a substitute has been ongoing with the winter window a chance to inject the a striker able to the targets that may propel Chelsea in the direction of title contenders.
Wilson is a kind of males, and this gave them a more in-depth look.
His 9 targets in 18 appearances this season are precisely what have attracted the Italian continent to the 26-year-old striker.
Whereas Olivier Giroud spurned Chelsea’s greatest probabilities and by no means seemed like including to his 5 targets this season, Wilson was a fear for the Blues back-four all night time.
Sarri’s assistant Gianfranco Zola praised his tempo and bodily skill forward of this League Cup quarter-final, and Wilson confirmed why.
He bullied Andreas Christensen all night time with the Chelsea centre-back by no means getting wherever close to difficult the Bournemouth striker bodily.
And the house dugout may have purred over the best way wherein Wilson linked up with Lys Mousset on every assault the guests had, together with his type suiting Sarri-ball.
Ought to he find yourself making the change to Stamford Bridge, there could also be some apologies wanted although.
On the first whistle, Wilson crashed into Cesc Fabregas to ship the Spaniard flying earlier than bashing into Kepa regardless of the Chelsea keeper holding the ball.
He confirmed the combat of a participant who has risen via the leagues, having performed for non-League Tamworth simply since years in the past.
He confirmed the combat of a participant who has recovered from rupturing anterior cruciate ligaments on each knees inside six months to recuperate and make his England debut.
He confirmed the combat that Chelsea and Sarri so desperately want. They’ve the expertise however lack the character.
Wilson might be one of many leaders, and the Matthew Harding stand will know that.
