Arsenal’s second highest ever goalscorer, Ian Wright, has hailed Chelsea’s 16-year-old Jay Dasilva as the best left back in the Premier League, despite him not having played a minute of senior football.

The young full back, who has represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, was part of the Chelsea youth team who yesterday won the UEFA Youth League, beating Shakhtar Donetsk 3-2 in the final.
Dasilva is known for his offensive style of play, regularly contributing to attacking phases, and has won many fans, including Arsenal legend Ian Wright, with his promising potential.
Despite his high recommendations, it remains to be seen whether he will be looked at by Jose Mourinho with a view to a first team place or if he will be lining up for the likes of Grays Athletic in years to come having failed to make the grade.
