Peter Cech has hailed Chelsea‘s stand-out stand-ins.
- Juventus and Barcelona out for Arsenal striker Aubameyang
- Chelsea hand transfer boost to sign this Juventus defender
- Man Utd miss Cristiano Ronaldo hint as they lose transfer battle to Liverpool
- United youngster Amad joins Rangers in loan deal
- United ‘interested’ in Ruben Neves before deadline day
All three came back down to earth by sitting out Wednesday’s 4-0 Champions League thumping of Malmo.
But Blues’ legend Cech believes the trio are now firmly established in manager Thomas Tuchel’s plans.
In fact, the all-time great keeper, now Chelsea’s technical advisor, rates last Saturday’s 1-0 success at Brentford as a defining moment for 22-year-olds Sarr and Chalobah.
The Blues returned top of the Premier League thanks to Ben Chilwell’s winner and dogged defending in the last 20 minutes.
And Cech told the club’s official website: “When you come back from the internationals, you always have a lot of question marks over what state the players will come back in.
“You don’t have time to prepare and obviously we had a difficult game at Brentford.
“For 70 minutes we were completely in charge and it was really nice to see other players coming in.
“You had Malang, Trevoh and Ruben starting, because they were the players who trained the two weeks while everybody else was travelling and playing for their national team.
“They stepped up and they had a very good game.
“The last 20 minutes they threw everything at us and then these are the difficulties where you need to find the way to win.”
