Carney Chukwuemeka made his Chelsea debut in the 3-0 victory over Wolves.

The 20-year-old came on in the 86th minute for his first game in Chelsea colours.

For the youngster, it was a dream come true and he hopes it’s the first of many.

Chukwuemeka also revealed what Chelsea boss Graham Potter told him before his debut.

Chukwuemeka said of his debut: “It feels amazing. I’ve dreamed of playing for the club I supported growing up, so for it to happen is a dream come true.

“I thank God, all my team-mates, my family and the Gaffer for trusting me. Hopefully it’s the first of many.

“The Chelsea fans have been really supporting me since I joined the club and the reception from them today definitely gave me a boost.

“Before coming on he [Potter] told me to express myself, to play how I have been in training and to play with a smile on myself. I think I did that so it was good.”

Chukwuemeka looked bright with the few touches he had, and we can only hope for more playing opportunities for him.
