Micah Richards believes that Chelsea have a serious defending talent.


Micah Richards was full of praises for one Chelsea player after Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace. Moreover, he believes that the player has the potential to be one of the best full backs in the league. We’re talking about Malo Gusto. The 20 year old Frenchman was outstanding against Crystal Palace. He played on both side as a full back in half. In addition to that, he also made an assist to Mykhailo Mudryk. Overall, he displayed a heroic performance against the Eagles. Mauricio Pochettino can rely on him during the crucial matches for the blues. Moreover, he has perfectly taken the place of Reece James.

According to the Chelseachronicle, after Reece James’s injury, a lot of questions were there that who will be on the right flank? who will be a perfect replacement for Reece James? and many more. It is then that Mauricio Pochettino decided to give a chance to Malo Gusto. Although he didn’t have a very good start to the season, but he’s really transformed himself in a short span of time. He’s quick, he can make dangerous crosses in the box. In addition to that, he’s a good defender as well. He’s patient and knows when to dive. We saw him giving a hard time to Jordan Ayew in the match against Crystal Palace.

Micah Richards believes that Malo Gusto can become one of the best full backs in the league.

Micah Richards was full of praises for Malo Gusto after Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 2-1.

“I’ll tell you whom I like after this match. It’s Malo Gusto. He was exceptional today. When he came here 10 games ago and picked up an injury, Reece James came in his place. We all thought that Gusto will have a hard time getting back to the team. However, James was injured again and Gusto got another chance. Since then, he hasn’t looked back. He’s got speed. He set up Mudryk’s goal wonderfully. He knows how to create deadly chances in the box. He’s a modern day defender. However, he’s also an old school defender because he knows when to tackle. He has patience. We saw Jordan Ayew was finding it difficult to get past him. He’s a wonderful young prospect. He’s got a bright future ahead.” – Micah Richards said.
