Chalobah forced to delete tweet about Declan Rice performance against Leicester City. Trevoh Chalobah came under fire from a section of the Chelsea support for praising Declan Rice’s performance against Leicester City ad West Ham leapfrogged Thomas Tuchel’s side in the table.

Trevoh Chalobah was forced to delete a tweet after coming under scrutiny from Chelsea fans for praising Declan Rice.

The West Ham midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer, celebrated his side’s 4-1 win over Leicester City on Twitter.

He said: “Top performance, +3.”

Blues defender Chalobah then responded to the England star hailing his performance for the Hammers as they dismantled the Foxes.

He said: “Big player.”

But Chalobah would later delete the post after coming under fire from a section of the Chelsea support as they felt it was wrong for him to give credit to a rival player after West Ham leapfrogged Thomas Tuchel’s side in the Premier League table with the victory.

Rice, Chalobah and Mason Mount all played together at Chelsea’s academy before Rice was released at the age of 14 and joined West Ham.

Tuchel has reportedly targeted Rice this summer as he continues his meteoric rise for the Hammers, but his £100million price tag has poured cold water on a potential return to west London.

Chalobah was expected to leave Chelsea on loan during the current window but his performances in the early stage of the season have impressed the Blues manager and the 22-year-old is now set to stay at Stamford Bridge to fight for a first-team place.

Tuchel explained his decision: ‘I think he did a fantastic pre-season with us and he’s a very good player and even more importantly a top character. He has both feet on the ground and he took his chance very impressively,’ said the German coach prior to Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Arsenal.

“He played very, very good matches in pre-season, he performed 120 minutes against Villarreal and another strong 90 minutes against Crystal Palace.

“So I think it’s very logical that he stays with us and is looking for his chance here. We let some players go and Trevoh is the guy we absolutely want to keep and this is the status for him.

“I absolutely don’t know anything about the contract situation I just know that we had a talk yesterday [Thursday] and I think that his situation is he went out for loans, he had the minutes he needed to develop and now is a good moment to stay with us and to be part of the group.”

On the prospect of Chalobah being used in midfield, Tuchel added: ‘We know this. For us so far he’s only played in the back three so right now I would say these are the positions where he can maybe achieve the most in high-level football.

“But it’s only my opinion after six or seven weeks and there’s enough room and enough space and enough time to convince me that he is maybe even the solution for us as the fourth midfielder. One time we will maybe try it.

“There is some stuff to improve on at this kind of level when the game is so tight, when you need to open spaces so quickly. It’s a big difference to play in midfield in the Premier League or, with all due respect, in a smaller team in France where you can maybe rely on ball wins and transition game.

“We have many phases where we have a lot of ball possession and need to find creative solutions. So hopefully we don’t need to try it because that would mean our three top guys are in shape and healthy, but we have this in mind.

“We just talked on the pitch about it with the staff because he was doing a good ball possession exercise in the middle of the pitch and I just asked the same question to all of us, “Could he even maybe be a number four solution?” We need to find it out and give some time.
