Tiémoué Bakayoko, on loan from Chelsea at Napoli, has established himself as a vital member of the Partenopei squad this season. He’s played in all but one league game for them so far.

His importance was again highlighted today in their 2-1 away win over Udinese, with Bakayoko scoring a 90th-minute header that sealed the win for his team.

The win ensured that Napoli stayed in the race for Champions League qualification for next season, with the Partenopei currently in 5th place, and on equal points with Atalanta. Qualifying for Europe should enable them to keep Bakayoko for good as well.
