Summer Chelsea signing Antonio Rudiger has silenced critics by scoring a wonder goal in training at Cobham, Chelsea’s training grounds.

Rudiger posted a video on his Twitter account where he rushed against two keepers as part of training drills in preparation for Saturday’s clash against Manchester City. This is how it turned out:

Rudiger was targeted by critics for his initial performances following his summer move from Roma for £35 million, with many questioning whether he could be considered an upgrade for Chelsea's back line.

But the German looks to have silences the criticism with terrific performances in his last two Premier League games – against Nottingham Forrest and Stoke City.

The 24-year-old remained an unused substitute in Chelsea mid-week exploits against Atletico Madrid, with manager Conte opting for Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta as his back three, but performances such as these might convince the Italian to take a more serious look at his bench.

Rudiger has racked up 466 minutes for Chelsea in all competitions so far, providing one assist in the process.
