A compilation of Mykhailo Mudryk's pre-season outing against Borussia Dortmund will encourage Mauricio Pochettino ahead of the upcoming campaign.
Since his much-talked about £88.5 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in January, the 22-year-old Ukraine international has struggled to hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge.
In fact, he is yet to score in 17 competitive appearances for the Blues, who endured a disastrous Premier League campaign last season, finishing behind Crystal Palace, Fulham and Brentford.
But it appears Mudryk has picked up some much-needed confidence in pre-season, with his latest performance against Borussia Dortmund being a huge positive in the 1-1 draw.
Check out his highlights package from Wednesday's game below.
Many fans have picked up on Mudryk's newfound confidence of late, including Chelsea teammate Ben Chilwell, who recently backed the forward to shine in the coming months.
"I just see endless bags of potential that hasn’t been fulfilled yet. I’ve told him that, I’m not just saying it," he said. "I’ve told him he hasn’t fulfilled that yet for one reason or another.
"I literally had a conversation with him today after training in the changing room, because he’s been on fire the last few days and obviously was on fire in the game against Brighton and I just said he needs to keep that up now for the whole season.
"We all see how good he is and he just needs to keep up what he’s been doing."

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, has already spotted Mudryk's "massive potential" since his appointment.
"I spoke with all the players, a lot, Mudryk also because he was in Barcelona for a few days and we exchanged messages," he explained.
"We spoke in the last few days and I’ve found a really good kid. He is still young with a massive potential. The most important thing is that we need to earn the trust and confidence in us.
"We are building the relationship with him and with different players. They need know us and how we act in every situation. We’ve had many chats and I’m happy about that."
