Chelsea gave two debuts in the Carabao Cup match against Nottingham Forest, so who is Dujon Sterling who replaced Davide Zappacosta in that game.
Aided by our loan policies that sees more experienced players away from the club we thought we would profile a player that hopefully will bleed blue.
So Who Is Dujon Sterling
Sterling is a proper academy product having joined the Blues in 2007 at the age of 8. He is now a seventeen-year-old that has represented England at various youth levels, winning the u19 European Youth Championship in the summer.
Able to play at right back and right midfield he has also played in every Chelsea youth level team, going on to win the FA Youth Cup, UEFA Youth Cup and u18 Premier League.
Sterling has an eye for goal and scored his most important one yet in the FA Youth Cup final last season against Manchester City.
Chelsea’s academy at Cobham Training Centre is regarded as one of the best in the world after our Youth League and FA Youth Cup titles.
Sterling represents the huge success we have had at youth level in recent years and it is great to see him in the Chelsea senior squad and getting some game time.
What Does The Future Hold?
Whilst it is encouraging to see him in the squad and getting game time, it is unlikely we will see him as a regular anytime soon. He still needs time to develop but it would be great to see glimpses of him in future particularly in the Carabao Cup.
A few short-term loans might be on the cards to get him regular game time but we look forward to seeing him develop and hopefully be amongst the crop of youngsters trying to oust Cahill et al.
