Chelsea fans loved how Ben Chilwell responded to Reece James’ incredible drive in new footage from their win over Sheffield United.
The Blues made it four consecutive wins in all competitions with a 4-1 victory over the Blades.
Frank Lampard saw four different players hit the back of the net in Tammy Abraham, Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Timo Werner.
But footage has emerged from Stamford Bridge of another player who could have hit the net in fine fashion.
In the clip, the players are running through shooting drills in the warm up to face Sheffield.
James, who played as right back in the win, runs up to collect a ball that has been rolled in front of him.
And the Englishman curls it into the top-right corner of the net, leaving goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga rooted to the spot.
This footage was shared on Chelsea’s official Instagram channel on Sunday, gaining more than a million views within hours of posting.
While the Blues faithful heaped praise on the Englishman for his curling effort, team-mate Chilwell also got involved with a three-word reaction.
“He’s a joke,” the full-back said – and his response earned thousands of likes on the social media channel.
The Englishman arrived at Stamford Bridge over the summer from Leicester, singing a £50m deal.
And club legend Ashley Cole has detailed a private chat he had with Chilwell and the first thing the 23-year-old said.
He told Sky Sports : “Defensively he’s been solid. He’s come into a side that was leaking goals with a lot of individual mistakes.
“Apart from Thiago Silva against West Brom the individual mistakes have been cut down.

“Chilwell, he can play in different areas of the pitch, he’s comfortable on the ball.
“I had a conversation with him and the first thing was ‘what do I need to make it at Chelsea’. He was so enthusiastic, he wanted to learn and he wanted to make it.
“We saw him at Leicester, that’s why Chelsea brought him and we’re seeing it now at Chelsea.”
Another star to steal the headlines was Hakim Ziyech, grabbing two assists and earning the praise of Lampard.
