Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and Jamie Carragher agreed in their analysis of Mykhailo Mudryk's 'world class' first goal for the club. The Ukraine international scored the opening goal against Fulham at Craven Cottage before Armando Broja doubled the Blues' lead just 82 seconds later.
Speaking at half-time, Lampard was full of praise for Mudryk after he put the Blues ahead against their West London rivals. «It was really well worked,» Lampard told Sky Sports.
«We spoke about the offensive threat of having [Mykhailo] Mudryk in the team and what he brings to the team, I like all aspects of this. In terms of Chelsea, they look really comfortable on the ball and Fulham’s pressure has been light.
»We spoke about Levi Colwill joining in at the right time, and you end up giving Fulham a massive problem because of it. Now, Mudryk is getting into those positions in between the lines where you go right, now they have got an issue.
«The beauty of this goal is when you get into that position, the easy thing for a player to do is to come short and get it to feet and see what I can do. When he can change his game with the pace that he has got and attracting defenders, looks to go and then runs at pace behind him, then of course he loses the defender.
»You can say that is bad defending, I think it is but at the same time when you have the speed that he’s got and you are making those runs, it’s nice, well taken, and I’m delighted for him because he had a couple of moments beforehand where it has not come off for him. He will gain so much confidence from that."
