But French football nevertheless always rejoices when its talents are doing well and these days, Christopher Nkunku is, in any case, visibly better.

The number 18 of the Blues did not lose his sense of goal, and showed it on the hour mark by enhancing a very good overflow from his compatriot Malo Gusto, slender on the right, with a call towards the point of play. penalty which was perfectly served. With one touch, Nkunku pushed the ball into the back of Bart Verbruggen’s net to score his third Premier League goal of the season, an achievement considering his few games played (10).

The last one, he celebrated with his signature celebration, by inflating a balloon, a nod to his son.
