Chelsea fans rave about summer arrival during Fulham clash

Supporters of Premier League giants Chelsea have taken to social media in their numbers on Sunday, to single a headline member of the club’s attacking ranks out for special praise.

For those not aware, Mauricio Pochettino’s troops are currently locked in action.

Amid ongoing efforts to ramp up preparations for the new season, Chelsea have locked horns with capital rivals Fulham, in a friendly clash in Maryland.

And, late in proceedings at FedExField, the Blues are firmly in control of proceedings.

Owing to goals on the part of Thiago Silva and Christopher Nkunku, Poch and co. boast a deserved 2-0 advantage, ahead of a final pre-season outing against Borussia Dortmund this week.

With several summer arrivals at Stamford Bridge having been afforded an opportunity to impress this evening, it should come as little surprise to hear that the Chelsea faithful have tuned in to watch in their numbers.

And, as alluded to above, one such recruit has since piqued the attentions of many of a Blues fan, for all the right reasons.

After making it three goals in two appearances in pre-season, Christopher Nkunku, amid a superb all-round display, has come in for widespread praise on social media.

Below, check out just some of the highlights from across Twitter:
