With the Carling Cup final having just in the bag there’s no better place to start than with young Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma. The Frenchman finally made his big money move in the summer to Chelsea after agreeing seeing out his loan at former club St Etienne, but fans of the London club and English football alike haven’t seen much of their young signing. That was until the cup final.

Zouma dominated the Spurs midfield in the anchor position usually occupied by NemanjaMatic. Although his passing wasn’t perfect, his tackles and overall performance won him rave reviews. With John Terry reaching the end of his illustrious career, Zouma looks like he is more than ready to make the step up to the Chelsea starting eleven – bringing with him an abundance of pace and power.
