Published Add your comment

Chelsea loanee Lewis Baker will have turned heads at Stamford Bridge with a glorious strike for Vitesse Arnhem.

The 20-year-old, just one of a number of Chelsea youngsters currently out on loan, enhanced his growing reputation with what can only be described as a gem.

Baker has now scored four goals in 24 appearances for Vitesse and his latest is without doubt the pick of the bunch.

Under interim boss Guus Hiddink, 20-year-old Ruben Loftus-Cheek has earned minutes for the senior team and scored against Scunthorpe in last month’s FA Cup third round tie.

Baker’s wonder strike will certainly do his first-team opportunities no harm.
