Some players have a favourite team they just love visiting and playing against; perhaps because they always score at a certain ground, or they can’t get enough of the away supporters and atmosphere.
But Chelsea’s Nathaniel Chalobah has a rather unusual reason for loving the club’s away-day visits to Crystal Palace’s ground Selhurst Park.
The Blues grabbeda 1-0 win against the Eagles thanks to a Diego Costa header, taking them to their 11th straight win in the league, seeing them top of the division just in time for the Christmas break.
Chalobah was an unused substitute during the game, but he wasn’t too disheartened, as the England U21 international is able to WALK HOME from the ground, telling everyone about it in a video on his Instagram account from his phone as he wandered back to his house.
He may not have got a run out for his side on Saturday, but he certainly kept up his match fitness with a lovely stroll in south London.
