The English winger grabbed his first goal for the club and looked dangerous throughout.
Chelsea fell to their sixth successive defeat under Frank Lampard on Tuesday night, losing 3-1 against Arsenal in a London derby at the Emirates.
It was another demoralising performance from the Blues, as they found themselves 3-0 down in the first half after some woeful defending, with Gabriel Jesus adding to Martin Odegaard’s brace.
The Gunners could have scored more but in the end, the game would finish 3-1, thanks to a first Chelsea goal from Noni Madueke, and the young winger deserves credit for his performance despite the defeat.
How did Madueke perform against Arsenal?
The 21-year-old, who joined from PSV Eindhoven in the January transfer window, was making just histhirdPremier League start for the Blues on Tuesday but certainly took his opportunity on the right-hand side.
As perSofascore, the tricky winger earned an impressive 7.3/10 rating for his performance at the Emirates, which ranked him as the second-best Chelsea player on the night behind only Thiago Silva (7.7).

It wasn’t just his well-taken goal, which saw him collect a pass from Mateo Kovacic after a run in behind Oleksandr Zinchenko and finish past Aaron Ramsdale, which saw him rated so highly however.
The England U21 international also completed four out of five dribbles and completed 17 passes, which is an improvement on hisaverageof 2.3 dribbles and 16.3 passes per game in the Premier League so far this term.
