Derrick Abu has been training with Chelsea‘s first team under the new manager Graham Potter. It has been reported that Derrick Abu have been spotted with Chelsea’s first team. The player have made 8 appearances for the Blues so far this season. The youngster is the latest from the Chelsea academy to get the opportunity to impress Graham Potter. He is one of the few academic players who have recently made an appearance in the Chelsea first team. He had predominantly started in the right-back position. However, he can also play as a centre-back or can even play as a right-midfielder if the need is required.
Derrick Abu has now been training with Chelsea’s first team
Derrick Abu is not only a good football player but also a musician. His career off the pitch is remarkable as well. He has launched his rap career under the name ‘CHO$EN’. Potter looks to be promoting many young talents this season by starting them with the first team. Academy player Lewis Hall have already made two starts before the World Cup break against Newcastle United and Manchester City. With his impressive display, he have now made a permanent place in the Chelsea first team. He is also joined by youngster Omari Hutchinson, who joined the Blues after a free transfer from Arsenal. While his only display was in a friendly in Abu Dhabi, he was usually seen on the bench before the World Cup. With the FA Cup fixture against City coming up, Omari Hutchinson will definitely be given the chance to show his talents.
Derrick Abu would be looking to make his own debut with the first team. The right-back position at the club is currently looking a bit scarce, with Reece James currently injured. Therefore Abu would be hoping to make a first-team debut with Chelsea in the coming days. Cesar Azpilicueta is currently featured in the position but he does not offer the same depth as James. This might lead Potter to start more young players in the coming weeks.
