LOAN WATCH: Chelsea ace Baker thumps home Vitesse cracker

Lewis Baker continued his good recent form with a thunderous goal in Vitesse Arnhem's win over Go Ahead Eagles on the weekend.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who is on loan at Vitesse from Chelsea, lashed home in the 78th minute as his side won 2-0 at the GelreDome on Saturday.

The goal was Baker's second in the league this season following his winner at Roda JC last month and came minutes after a penalty from ex-Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

The England U21 star also had five chances and a 91% pass completion rate in another impressive performance.

Fellow Blues youngster Nathan started in a front three alongside van Wolfswinkel and Milot Rashica but was replaced at half-time, while Matt Miazga was an unused sub.

Check out Baker's brilliant goal below, thanks to Football 24:

The victory saw Vitesse go sixth on the Eredivisie table with 10 points from six matches.
