‘They were brilliant’ – These two ‘great’ Chelsea players hailed for their performance against Bournemouth

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher hailed Benoit Badiashile and Noni Madueke for their brilliant performances in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Gallagher, Badiashile and Joao Felix all scored for the Blues against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium as Frank Lampard secured his first victory as Chelsea interim manager after 7 games.

“They are obviously great players,” said Gallagher. “Maybe they haven’t played as much as they’d have liked because of the number of players in our squad but they showed great professionalism and I thought they were brilliant.

“Noni has been waiting for his opportunity and got it against Arsenal and on Saturday, and he showed what he can do. I knew what he’s like because of England Under-21s. He’s very young so he’s got even more to go. It’s very exciting for him to be here.”
