Chopper Harris the Chelsea Legend has spoken of Josh McEachran and believes out of the current crop of youngsters coming through, he is the best of the bunch and has spoken of a bright future for Chelsea.

He said:
"Josh is one of the brightest prospects I've seen for quite some time, Provided he keeps his feet on the ground I think he's got a fantastic future with Chelsea. Of the three lads who have come into the frame, Josh is top of the tree, He has done tremendously well.

"He is a very confident lad on the ball, seems to have two good feet and knows when to play the ball and when to hold it, I've heard one or two people say he's an Alan Hudson-type of player. The games I've seen him in he has played in the holding role but some people tell me he is best going forward so it will be interesting to see him in that position.

Van Aanholt has done ever so well in the games he's played and is a full back who likes to get forward. Bruma looks a bit raw to me and I think it would do him good to go out on loan for a spell so he could play top-class football week-in week-out.

It's been a long time since we've had good youngsters coming through, If you think back to the early 1970s when we won the FA Cup and Cup Winners' Cup we had six home-grown players. Managers don't seem to get much time now to bring young players through. It's been a long time since we've had players coming through the ranks but with these three young lads I think the future's looking very bright for Chelsea!".
I don't think any of us will argue with Chopper on that one and there is no doubt who has made the biggest impression on Chelsea fans and football fans and that's Josh McEachran. I reported the other day on here that for me, McEachran would be the only youngster that would still feature for Chelsea between now and the end of the season.

After my post, we had confirmation that Kakuta and Van Aanholt are going out on loan and I fully expect Bruma to follow.

Even though it does take time and some will argue that it's about time Chelsea saw the benefit of Roman's investment into our Academy, it does look promising for Chelsea for the next few years.
