Chelsea defender, Trevoh Chalobah, has said that he would have never dreamed of scoring after hammering in a long-range strike on his Premier League debut for the Blues against Crystal Palace.
Chalobah admitted it was ‘a surreal moment’ for him, adding that he could not believe when the ball went in.
The 22-year-old scored Chelsea’s third goal in the 58th minute against Palace, following two goals each from Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic.
He took a couple of advancing touches, looked up and smashed a low shot across goalkeeper Vicente Guaita and into the far corner of the net.
Reacting, Chalobah told BBC Sport, “I couldn’t believe it when the ball went in.
“I didn’t know what to do and I dropped to my knees. I was over the moon. I didn’t know the ball went in until the crowd cheered. It’s a surreal moment.”
He added: “I would have never dreamed of scoring.
“Moments like this come and you just have to be patient. From the day I came in, my aim was to impress the manager, whether that is in training or anywhere.
“I think I have done that well, I got my opportunity and I have taken it. In this moment, I just wanted to enjoy my debut.
“As a young boy, I have always dreamed to play in these games for my club so I made sure I was ready and enjoyed it. I wasn’t too nervous.”
