Chelsea boss Graham Potter has praised Chelsea youngster Lewis Hall for his performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday.

Consistently threatening with driving runs down the left, the 18 year old  was unlucky not to get on the score sheet, seeing a first-half effort saved by Stefan Ortega after expertly feinting inside his man.

Hall, who played at left wing-back for the Blues, also had a second-half effort kept out by the City goalkeeper.

Reacting to Hall’s performance, Potter told Sky Sports: “Lewis Hall did brilliantly. Fantastic performance. Great quality great effort. You can see he can take the ball, He took responsibility.

“Putting the ball in the net is the hardest thing and that’s all he didn’t do today but everything he did do was fantastic.”
