Chelsea youngster Chalobah wins praise for Watford winner

Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah proved the inspiration in Watford's victory at Leicester City last night.

The on-loan 18-year-old might not quite yet be the ready-made replacement for the England star Frank Lampard.

But the England Under-21 midfield ace showed that, like Lampard, he has an eye for goal with a screamer that gave Kasper Schmeichel no chance.

Chalobah admitted: "I couldn't have caught it any better. It sat up nicely for me and I thought, why not?"

Boss Gianfranco Zola said: "It was a great goal. Nathaniel is a player who has those type of goals in his bag."
