John Terry has shared his endorsement of Chelsea youngster, Alfie Gilchrist.

Gilchrist finally made his debut for Chelsea during Wednesday’s 2-1 win against Crystal Palace.

Gilchrist, who plays as a centre back, is just 20 years old, but Terry thinks he has what it takes to succeed at a top level.

The former Chelsea captain said of the defender during a recent Q&A session: “Alfie Gilchrist is a really, really good player.

“He’s got an unbelievable attitude, he’s been at the club since the age of eight. He performs so well on a daily basis and does everything right.

“I think he’s got a good chance. We spoke about the young players going on loan – I think Alfie’s next step is to go on loan next season, and then we will see how he does.

“I’m expecting big things from Alfie. I expect to see him play a game or two this season, we’ll have to see how the season goes on.”
