CHELSEA fans are fascinated by Huddersfield loan star Levi Colwill’s toughness following a recent Championship match against Luton.
The Terriers won 2-0 at John Smith’s Stadium thanks to goals by Jon Russell on 59 minutes and Naby Sarr, who clinched the three points a minute before full-time.

But it wasn’t the scoreline that won over the Blues supporters but Colwill’s reaction after Luton‘s missed penalty in the 70th minute.
Elijah Adebayo missed Lee Nicholls’ bottom right corner and sent the ball out for a free-kick.
Huddersfield‘s Lewis O’Brien appeared to have said something to Adebayo after his botched spot-kick.
Luton’s Kal Naismith seemingly took great offence to it and floored O’Brien with a powerful shove.
That is when Colwill stepped up to defend his team-mate as he pushed Naismith away.
More Huddersfield players joined the melee but it was the Chelsea centre-back that first on the scene.
The West Londoners fans were very impressed by the 19-year-old’s character and took to Twitter to praise him with some even comparing his toughness to Antonio Rudiger‘s.
One supporter tweeted: “Rudiger blood in his veins.”
Another posted: “Imagine him with Rudiger . Our team would finally be angrier in a good way.”
A third fan wrote: “He’s going to be a right player for Chelsea in a couple of years.”
This Chelsea enthusiast said: “Rudiger need to mentor him.”
And that one posted: “Future.Captain.”
