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.

The Eredivisie side trailed De Graafschap 2-1 with under 10 minutes remaining when Baker decided to do this.
The England Under-21 international wasn’t afforded first-team opportunities under Jose Mourinho but, with Chelsea set to appoint a permanent successor to the Portuguese, Baker can only hope the new manager has a preference for homegrown talent.
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.
