After transferring from the Queens Park Rangers last year, Eze performed well in his debut season in the Premier League, scoring 4 goals and 6 assists in 34 games.
Meanwhile, Chelsea legend Steve Sidwell compared Eze with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry after finishing the game at Selhurst Park.
“We think Eberechi Eze is calm, calm and composed, but for this goal! He just went in and out of Sheffield United,” Sidwell said.
“If there is a player, you can compare his end to Thierry Henry-he just put it in the bottom right corner.
“He slipped past Sheffield United and scored a cool goal in Aaron Ramsdale. What a great goal! I always like to watch Eze, he has so much talent. “
Unfortunately, the Nigerian was unable to end the season after a ruptured Achilles tendon in training.
Whether Eze can recover in time before the start of the 2021-22 season remains to be seen. There are several reports that he will not be able to participate in the game before the beginning of next year.
