He really couldn’t have picked a better time to do it could he?

And I’m not talking about during the game, but during the season.

With stories surrounding the future of 16-year-old’s future in the days leading up to the game, he was presented with the perfect opportunity to try and get people talking about his on the pitch exploits rather than what is happening off it, and he did exactly that by giving the Blues the lead inside five minutes.

And in perhaps a not so subtle manner of trying to do the same, the club’s Twitter account posted a video of his celebration from the goal, using it as ‘Monday Motivation’, and it gave fans the chance to essentially plead the club not to sell him. There were even some who believed that he could be in line for a bit of a promotion at St Andrew’s.

Will Bellingham be a Blue at the start of next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But with a story in The Times coming out after the game that the Blues are actually willing to sell him providing they can keep old on him until the summer of 2021, you never know what kind of twists and turns this story is yet to take.
