Lewis Baker may not have played in the Premier League for Chelsea yet but that could soon change if anyone at the club watches his recent video.

The 20-year-old, who is on loan at parent club Vitesse, has released a two-minute compilation of him showing off his ball control, his shooting and also achieving a few trick shots along the way.

The clip starts off gently with Baker demonstrating his close-control with a few impressive tricks. The midfielder then moves onto scoring direct from a corner - which he manages with both feet.

Then it’s onto the interesting stuff.

Baker is rolled the ball and proceeds to do a few kick-ups before volleying the ball into the top corner - once with his right foot and once with his left. Dele Alli, eat your heart out.

Willian may have been magnificent from dead-ball situations this season for Chelsea, but can he take them with either foot?

Well Baker certainly can, as he whips in some incredible free-kicks regardless of which foot he’s using.

Next up are the trick shots. Baker manages to score from behind the goal putting some remarkable curl on the ball before his piece-de-resistance: nailing a 'no-look' crossbar challenge from the edge of the box. Remarkable.

Watch the impressive video here:

Baker signed for Chelsea as a nine-year-old and progressed through the academy at Stamford Bridge. However, he has only made one appearance at the club - an FA Cup clash against Derby County in January 2014.

Last season, Baker had loan spells at both Sheffield Wednesday and Milton Keynes Dons before joining teammates Isaiah Brown, Dominic Solanke, Nathan and Danilo Pantic at Vitesse for this current campaign.
