Tyrique George is a special youngster coming through the Chelsea academy system right now.
That is according to Blues first-team star Noni Madueke.
The Blues academy at Cobham has been churning out future stars for several decades now, so who’s the next off the production line?
Tyrique George, who only turned 18 earlier this month, is one Chelsea prospect beginning to make a name for himself at academy level.
He scored a stunning goal on Thursday for the Blues Under-18s team, who beat Crystal Palace in the FA Youth Cup to reach the quarter-finals.
The skilful winger is scoring regularly this campaign for the U18s. Also, he’s getting minutes with the Under-21s.
Hopefully, it’s not too long before the English youngster gets a first-team debut.

George uploaded a post on Instagram after more success with the U18s.
Interestingly, Chelsea first teamers Noni Madueke and Carney Chukwuemeka responded in the comment section.
It certainly sounds like Madueke, in particular, is predicting a big future for George.
Keep an eye out for Tyrique George
This isn’t the first time that George has received attention from the Blues senior squad.
Chelsea captain Reece James addressed 18-year-old talent George back in November.
James told George: “I was once the young kid to come over and train with the first team. Keep working hard champ. Anything is possible.”
We’ve seen such a wild overhaul of the squad at Stamford Bridge in the last couple of years under this ownership, but it’s important to keep the door open for the rising stars in Chelsea’s academy.
