LOAN INTEREST: CHALOBAH’S SEASON CONTINUES
Chelsea Academy product Nathaniel Chalobah is set to appear in the Championship play-off final after helping his on-loan club Watford to victory on Sunday afternoon.
The 18-year-old played in midfield for the Hornets as they turned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg of their tie with Leicester City into a 3-2 aggregate win. The second leg was at home for Watford and Gianfranco Zola's side took the lead but Leicester equalised before half-time.
Watford then levelled the tie on aggregate when Matej Vydra netted for the second time in the game but Leicester were presented with the chance to book a place at Wembley when a penalty was awarded in stoppage time. Manuel Almunia saved it and Watford went up the other end and scored a dramatic late winner of their own through Troy Deeney.
They will now play either Crystal Palace or Gustavo Poyet's Brighton on Monday 27 May.
