This is good news, with him and Johnson coming through just as some of the old guard are coming to the end of their careers.

    We've been struggling in midfield for a while now, especially lacking a left sided player, and this guy has a high football IQ, plus a great range of passing. Harry can take over the Ramsey role, and we've got plenty of pace down the flanks.

    Needs to move really, he's not getting any younger and he's not getting into that side

    Possibly, but he's still only 21, which is young for his position at that level. If he can get himself into the EPL squad he will have the experience of playing under a world class coach, and learning the tricks of the trade from the likes of Silva, Koulibaly, Kante, Jorghino, Kovacic, etc. It's a tricky one and a bit of a gamble.

    Looks like he might be staying at Chelsea, as Tuchel thinks he is well suited for the Thiago Silva CCB role, plus he can play DM if they switch to a back 4. Not sure how much game time he will get, but it will be a good learning experience playing and training with the big boys.

    On the ball, hes very good. Based on his Welsh performances Im nervous when he goes in for a tackle. He often mis times them and loses the ball in contact. Hope that side of his game develops rapidly in the next few months if he does stay at Chelsea

    gets caught out of position a bit too often when at centre back and does occasionally go in for a rash challenge, I think both would be improved by playing regularly in one position

    The benefit of being at a top club is they have the coaching staff who can mould the players to suit their requirements, and they also work on their weaknesses. I'd be quite happy if he stays there, and likewise Rodon at Spurs. Also pleased to see Ten Hag taking an interest in young Charlie Savage, cos he's got a thing about defensive midfielders and he likes to develop them from a young age to fit his system, e.q. Frenkie de Jong. There are also a couple of Welsh lads still at Liverpool, left back Owen Beck and Jason Koumas' son Lewis who are worth keeping an eye on.

    We need a forward thinking left back, so that Neco is free to play down the right, and Owen might be that person.

    Incredible stuff. Ethan Ampadu in acres of space making the pass. He could have had a cigar on the go as well!

    That's how you win the Champions League, no kick and rush like back in your day

    I could have made some of those passes. That highlight roll is just bullshit, it means nothing. If a player at a club like Chelsea can't pick a pass when both he and his team mate are in tonnes of space, then there's hope for all of us. The measure is his defending, when midfield players make late runs or peel off at the final second, Concentration, positional sense and ball watching are Ampadu's problems. He is a great athlete, composed and comfortable with the ball at his feet, although that should be the minimum requirement at that level. He needs to sort his defending.

    He's doing what the manager told him to do. If the opposition press higher Chelsea will play through them faster. This is Tuchel's tactics, a leading proponent of playing out from the back and exploiting any open spaces. If the opposition decide to use a high press, then Chelsea will use a different countermeasure. It's all textbook stuff.
