CHELSEA fans were left gushing over forgotten man Kenedy as he and fellow misfit Ross Barkley shined in the 2-1 win against Watford. Blues supporters were left rubbing their eyes when Thomas Tuchel named Brazilian wing-back Kenedy in his starting XI for the first time yesterday.

The 26-year-old’s last Premier League appearance for Chelsea came in the 2016-17 campaign. Kenedy, a £6million signing from Fluminense in 2015, spent the following five years on loan at clubs including Watford and Newcastle.

But he was given a shock recall from his Flamengo loan in January as cover for the injured Ben Chilwell. Despite returning to London, Tuchel continued to place his trust in Marcos Alonso, with Malang Sarr also preferred at left wing-back at times.

But Kenedy, who is out of contract in 2023, took yesterday’s opportunity with both hands. The ace, linked with Leeds United , was rampant up and down Chelsea’s left flank. And Kenedy made a real statement when he assisted Kai Havert's opener at Stamford Bridge. Fans were certainly left impressed, with many wondering why Kenedy hadn’t been given a chance earlier on in the campaign.
