Trevoh Chalobah praised Chelsea teammate Malo Gusto after his latest performance this week.
Chelsea won 3-1 away at Crystal Palace on Monday night in the Premier League meeting at Selhurst Park.
For the Blues, they’ve moved into the top half of the league table after a comeback victory last night in a London derby. Conor Gallagher (two) and Enzo Fernandez were on the scoresheet in the second-half.
We suspect the team will need to find another gear again when they travel to in-form Manchester City this Saturday evening for their next league fixture.
Malo Gusto, 20, delivered another eye-catching performance in Chelsea colours, which included a pinpoint assist that helped his side get back in the game at Palace.
The right-back celebrated with a post on Instagram after three league points.
Blues defender Trevoh Chalobah, who was back on the bench versus Palace for the first time this season after his injury layout, praised his teammate in the comment section with a two-word response.

“For the badge! Go Blues,” Gusto wrote on social media.
Chalobah responded: “Silky man.”
Malo Gusto impresses again
It was another really positive display from Gusto for Chelsea this week.
The athletic full-back does both the attacking and defensive side of the game to a great standard, so it’s hard to believe he’s only a 20-year-old.
Speaking via Football.London after Chelsea’s win over Palace, Pochettino expressed his delight with Gusto for his performances during this debut season at Stamford Bridge.
We agree that Gusto’s a silky footballer, especially when you watch his close control and his crossing ability. Chelsea’s attacking play was pretty reliant on him and the right-winger during yesterday’s result.
