Paul Merson reacts as Mykhailo Mudryk scores first goal for Chelsea

Former Arsenal striker Paul Merson has hailed Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk after the Ukrainian winger scored his first goal for the club.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk winger scored for the Blues in their thrilling 4-3 win against Brighton on Saturday.

The winger moved to Stamford Bridge in January in an eight-year contract from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 22-year-old failed to impress in the few games he played before the end of the season.

However, Mudyrk’s fortunes changed on Saturday during Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s clash against Brighton in the summer series.

The two teams clashed during the pre-season tournament friendly in the United States.

Mudryk brilliantly scored his first goal for the Blues after being teed up by Nicolas Jackson in the 65th minute.

Merson hailed Mudryk on Twitter after the latter scored his first goal, saying, “What a goal Mudryk. Could be the goal that kick-starts his Chelsea career.”
