Levi Colwill: First Goal for Childhood Club Chelsea fulfills Lifelong Dream.

The 20-year-old defender’s towering header in the 3-2 win over Brighton at Stamford Bridge came from Nicolas Jackson‘s flick-on.

Asked whether he had dreamed of the moment while in the club’s academy, he said:

“100 per cent! 100 per cent! This is what every little boy in the academy thinks about – I am so happy to be living my dream.

“This moment means everything to me after growing up through the club and academy.

It was a lot of emotions after I headed it in. But I wasn’t sure if the referee would give it, and he gave it.

I ran off to celebrate my first Prem goal but then realised it was against my old team, so I needed to show them some respect, which I did.

“Brighton, the fans and the manager did a lot for me, and I wouldn’t be here without them and chose not to over-celebrate; it was the least I could do.

I am hoping to get many more for Chelsea. I have so much more I need to prove. Hopefully, I can prove how good I can be.”

Enzo Fernandez put Chelsea ahead with a similar header four minutes earlier and Colwill said the £107m January signing has “got a big career ahead of him at Chelsea”.

Chelsea on Wednesday are at Old Trafford to face Manchester United, who remain five points ahead of the Blues despite their own defeat to Newcastle.

Colwill says Chelsea can close the gap with the likes of United by maintaining a similar approach.

“We just keep trying to prove what a good team we can be and are.

Old Trafford will be just like any other game. We go there to win, play our football and take our chances,” he said.
