The England U21 international spent last season on loan at Watford and is yet to make his competitive first-team debut for Chelsea.

But the 18-year-old, who can play in central defence or midfield, is highly rated by boss Jose Mourinho, who says he has a big future in the game.

Mourinho told the club's website: "He's a very, very good player and I like him very, very much. I am very impressed. For sure he is a Chelsea player."

Chalobah said: "It is great for me that Chelsea are willing to give me such a long contract, it is a big confidence boost.

"I think I have developed a lot as a player but I know I must continue to improve to earn a place in the Chelsea team and with my future settled, I can concentrate on doing that.

"Watford was a great experience, I learned about playing in front of a crowd every game and so many other lessons that there are too many to list.

"Training with Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea squad this pre-season, every session has been different with something new to take on board. I've enjoyed it a lot.

"I would like to thank all the coaches who have helped me throughout my time at Chelsea."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
