‘He is a rock’, ‘Love him’ – some Chelsea fans praise defender after league win over Norwich City

Some Chelsea fans have praised the consistency shown by defender Emerson Palmieri since the beginning of the season. The Italy international has been preferred ahead of Marcos Alonso for the left-back duties this term and he has been one of the top players for the side despite the mixed run of results.

During Saturday’s 3-2 triumph over Norwich City, Emerson had a solid performance with the most number of touches, tackles and crosses while he was able to create the second-most number of chances through the game, as per Squawka.

This has certainly pleased a section of the club’s faithful and a few of them have taken to Twitter to appreciate the efforts of the defender, who has become an undisputed starter under the guidance of manager Frank Lampard.

Twitter reactions:

The Blues picked up their first triumph of the new campaign at Carrow Road and that has got their season going after just managing one point from the opening two Premier League matches.

Next up, the west London giants have a home encounter against Sheffield United before the international break and they should be fancied to secure a second-straight league victory.

Blues graduate Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have taken up the scoring mantle with two goals apiece in the top-flight but Lampard will be hoping for a better run of results in the defensive front.

The centre-back pairing of Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen have vastly improved from the start of the season, but they still need to cut out the occasional positional errors like the ones at Norwich.
