Chelsea youngster Bertrand Traore has been making a statement while on loan at Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem.
The 19-year-old helped Vitesse to end a run of six games without a win with two goals in a 4-0 thrashing of champions Ajax.
While poor defending played its part, Traore showcased his strength, speed and skill in the match. For his first goal the winger latched on to a long ball forward before cutting inside of Joel Veltman and firing a lovely shot over the goalkeeper.
After half time Veltman was again at fault, the Dutch defender failed to get his head on a clearance allowing the Burkina Faso international to race through and slot the ball past the on-rushing goalkeeper.
Traore signed a professional contract with Chelsea at the start of the January transfer window in 2014 and was immediately loaned to Geel en Zwart where he scored three goals in 15 appearances. The Blues opted to extend the deal in the summer and Traore has managed two goals and an assist in another 14 appearances in the Eredivisie.

The 19-year-old’s form is expected to earn him a call up to play at the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea next year, the 19-year-old made one substitute appearance at the tournament in 2012.
The winger, who made his Burkina Faso debut at 15 years old, is one of three players on loan at Vitesse from the west London club.
Check out Traore's goals in the win below:
Central midfielder Josh McEachran has endured a frustrating time in Holland having made just one start and five substitute appearances.
Brazilian right back Wallace has been enjoying his time at club though. The 20-year-old, who was loaned to Inter Milan last season, has made 11 appearances so far for the Eredivisie outfit this season.
It's Traore who is making the biggest impression however, and Blues boss Jose Mourinho is sure to be watching his continued development at Stamford Bridge.
