Chelsea fans were not impressed last night as they gave their reaction on Twitter to the performance of Sheffield United loanee, Ethan Ampadu.
In fact, it was more the mistake which led to the winner for Fulham which had Blues fans talking. His failed to read a long ball over the top, followed some lacklustre defending as Ademola Lookman took the ball down, left plenty scratching their heads.
Chris Wilder defender Ampadu following the game. The Blades boss insisting he is a young boy who will learn from the mistake.
However, Twitter is not quite as forgiving a place as the dressing room or management team at times, and there were plenty of fans, including Chelsea supporters, who were alarmed by Ampadu’s error.
It was a shame for the Welsh international, too. He had been playing well for United in recent weeks. But as has been the theme to the Blades’ season, one mistake leads to a goal and then, well, you know the rest.
Here, then is what some Chelsea fans had to say as Ethan Ampadu caught the eye for all the wrong reasons for Sheffield United.
Ampadu can stay far away from this Chelsea team IMO. Gilmour already showing levels above Ampadu and I’d rather see Guehi or a big signing for our centreback solution.

That was shocking from Ampadu. Clearly not ready to break into the Chelsea first team yet.

Really poor defending from Ampadu there.
