Atsu and Traore get in the ACN best 11 after the tournament.  So does Salah too.

That's 100 goals already this season for our loan army.

Was in the cup semi final and earned them a 2-1 win. Vitesse have never won a major trophy in their history so there was massive pressure on that game and for him to score both goals indicates he does not shirk the big occasion.

After a short lay-off due to injury, I see Tammy Abraham is back and scoring again tonight!

In terms of numbers, Baker for sure has delivered. 14 goals and 5 assists in 30 matches clearly indicates he is one of the best players in Holland right now. If he wanted to come back to Chelsea in the summer, that had to be his goal at the season's start. But does anybody know how he has improved? Has he become more of a complete CM, or is he more specialised as a creative player? Is he as consistent as his numbers indicate, and are the Vitesse supporters as impressed with him as Chelsea fans keeping track of his goal scoring ratio?

Even if he is tearing it up in Holland, I can't see him playing in the first team next season. Mostly because we currently have four CMs in Kante, Matic, Cesc and Nate, neither of them will leave, and what we need there is a top quality signing and not an up and coming local lad. Timing does not work in his favour. But if he can get himself a PL loan, and continue his rise there, he for sure has the skill set to replace Fabregas when his contract runs out in two years.

He is still only 21 (turns 22 in a month), so would benefit way more from playing regularly at top level than playing in a reduced role at Chelsea.
