Tears in my eyes. Finally a proper left back. 

Don't want to kneejerk too soon but if he keeps this up this will be my worst misjudgement ever, and I've made some in my time.

Was Chilwell ever a set-piece taker at Leicester? :lol: 

1 goal and 2 assists in 3 games. Good start.

And Reguilon who? :ph34r:

Reguillon burnt us in that Spuds goal

Him and Maddison used to take indirect free-kick duties. Chilwell used to take the odd corners too but would again, usually take this from the left hand side

Ben Chilwell ready to take his game 'to the next level' at Chelsea with the help of a pep talk from Blues stalwart Ashley Cole following emotional departure from Leicester

The left-back admitted to being 'starstruck' at spending a few hours chatting with Cole

As I said good buy. 

Reguillon is good, but the buy back clause is a no go for a club like us, that's why United also turn down. 

Mourinho takes it because he don't think for the future, but now. 

Anyhow glad that we got some improvement in LB after many years. Now here hoping he stays fit because the back up are terrible.

Are you feeling happy, [mention=6611]killer1257[/mention]? [emoji185]
Very satisfied with his performance. I have nothing to moan about.
Hope he continues like that and he creates many more chances.
His crosses are really impressive, I have tk say

Of course he will have bad games too, but this just shows how pathetic of some people it is to actually bash him before he even wore the Blue shirt for the first time.

Fair enough, played great today, if he keeps this up he will soon become a fan favorite for sure. Fullbacks that attack and assist? Yes please.

I know I'm the one that posted this picture, but I get oddly distracted by Ashley Cole's untied shoe laces.

But then I remember that its Ashley Cole.

Played well today and offered more going forward than I thought he would. However, my biggest concern with him wasn't his forward play but rather his defensive play. Today I saw about four times he allowed his marker to run off of him. This may have been due to him settling in but he cannot allow that against better teams.

Yep, still needs some work to improve on his defending but it helps that he's at least very athletic and can recover on some of his mistakes.For a modern full-back who needs to participate equally in both attack and defense being fast is one of the most important qualities. Just look at Alphonso Davies, he's not the most reliable defender in 1v1 situations either but his pace and acceleration, among other qualities, make him one of the best LBs out there.

With Alonso he's so slow that as soon as he's beaten by his man they're long gone so he can either stay back and try to defend or he can go forward and leave a huge space behind for the opponent to exploit. Lately Alonso hasn't been good in attack either and still shit defensively so his total effect on the team's play is very much negative.

Jury is still out there for Chilwell at such a big price but the first impression is very good.
