Chelsea’s Charly Musonda is set to make his debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup.
A small, skillful attacking midfielder from Brussels, he was signed by Chelsea in 2012 when he was only 15.
Manager Antonio Conte thinks that he “has the quality to become a great player” and has been impressed when he has trained with the first team.
The Blues are top of the Premier League table and have barely rotated players in the league, leaving few opportunities for the likes of Musonda to break into the team, but changes are set to be made at the weekend.
The 20-year-old is highly regarded, but he was recalled from his loan deal at Real Betis after a change of coach meant his opportunities deminished, and as has parent club struggled to secure their transfer targets in January.
Roma were interested in securing a loan move, but Chelsea decided against allowing him to move to another club where he would likely be left on the bench.
