Most Promising Footballers in the World - No.6

One of newest Chelsea youngsters, and another promising English talent...

Josh McEachran

Club: Chelsea
Age: 17
Position: Centre Midfield
Claim to fame: Made his Chelsea debut, aged 17, in the Champions League

One of the most promising young midfielders in the country, a product of the Chelsea academy, big things are expected of the 17 year old.

He is a left footed midfielder; he can operate in the centre or can play as a deep lying playmaker. He came into the public spotlight after making his Chelsea first team debut in a 4-1 win against MSK Zilina, where he played 11 minutes. He went on to make his Premier League debut in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, wearing the number 46 shirt.

He is highly rated by pundits and football fans alike, but current Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti heaped praise on the youngster, stating;

“When it’s possible, I would like to give time on the pitch to our younger players to improve our experience as a team. McEachran is very young but he is a fantastic talent and it’s important to give him an opportunity.”

A great player for the future who is already making his mark in and around the current Chelsea squad, and should be a first team starter in the next few years. Watch this space.
