We’ve seen two sides of Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma in the space of just a few days.
In the Premier League opener against Manchester United, the 24-year-old was error-prone and his mistakes cost the side dearly – none more so than fouling Marcus Rashford to gift them the opening goal.
But on Wednesday evening, the Frenchman looked much more solid as Liverpool had to beat Chelsea on penalties to secure the UEFA Super Cup.
His performance hasn’t gone unnoticed as a number of Chelsea supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One fan called him the ‘French Maldini’ whilst another added that he was ‘awesome’ and also one said he was his centre-back.
Others praised Zouma for his bounce-back ability and learning from his mistakes with one supporter saying he proved fans wrong who had doubted him after just one game.
The 6 foot 3 ace showed signs of why Everton were so desperate to keep him over the summer so Chelsea fans will be hoping he builds on that rather as the season progresses.
Here’s the best of the reaction:

Well done Kurt, had a great game yesterday and gave a good response after Sunday’s game ????????

My man Kurt proved all the reactionary fans wrong. I knew he had it in him. Don’t judge a player for one bad performance.
Support the team. Well done Kurt.

Credit where credit is due. Zouma you were excellent yesterday and resolute in defense. Please carry on like this and stay fully focused.
Lets forget that match against ManU and show the world exactly what you are capable of ????
Mourinho ???? Zouma…Zouma!

You have responded well after that bad game against United.. Lampard will definitely shape you to the kind of player he wants.. we have enjoyed good football no doubt but now it’s time for winning.

Zouma has a great game yesterday. Defended well and played the opposition really hard. Completely different player compared to Sunday. Well done. Shows the ability of bouncing back and learning from his mistakes. He’s going to be a really good centre back.
