What Noni Madueke did on the bench after Chelsea scored their first goal last night
Noni Madueke, Chelsea’s substitute, was reportedly visibly delighted when Benoit Badiashile scored for the team during the recent game. Badiashile, who had been sidelined due to an injury, made his first appearance of the season in the match.
Badiashile’s goal in the first half of the game against Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup not only gave Chelsea the lead but also marked a significant moment for him personally, as he returned after a prolonged injury layoff. His celebrations were shared with teammates, including Axel Disasi, a close friend. Noni Madueke, too, expressed his pride and joy for his teammate during the celebration.
Chelsea’s victory secured their place in the quarter-finals of the competition, and they will likely aim for a deep run in the tournament. Badiashile’s successful return to action, playing for an hour without any issues, provides Mauricio Pochettino with more defensive options, which will be valuable for the team. The return of club captain Reece James to the starting lineup was also a positive development for Chelsea during the match.
