Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink named two 20-year-olds in the Blues’ starting line-up against Norwich City, and both youngsters were directly involved in each of the away side’s goals at Carrow Road.

 

Brazilian youngster Kenedy started at left-back for Chelsea after Abdul Baba Rahman’s blunder cost the Blues a goal against Southampton last weekend. Meanwhile, Bertrand Traore has been making his mark for the Blues in 2016 — particularly in the FA Cup — and was given the opportunity to showcase his ability from the start on Wednesday, with Willian being given a rest.

Hiddink did not have to wait long to see his decisions being vindicated. Kenedy burst forward in the first minute, and scored a cracking long-range goal just 39 seconds into the match — the fastest goal of the 2015-2016 Premier League season thus far.

Meanwhile, Traore looked sharp throughout the game and set up Diego Costa just before half time to give Chelsea a two-goal cushion. Blues’ supporters were understandably delighted with the contributions of the two youngsters, and took to social media to heap praise on the duo.

Here are some of the best tweets from the game:
