Sheffield Wednesday and Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Sam Hutchinson's performance v Arsenal

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday's Sam Hutchinson put in a stunning performance against Arsenal.

Sam Hutchinson delivered a hammer blow to Arsenal as he struck the third goal for Sheffield Wednesday in their Capital One Cup win over the Gunners.

The Owls beat the Gunners 3-0, and former Chelsea midfielder Hutchinson produced an all action display.

Hutchinson even picked up his customary booking for a rash challenge in the first half, but managed to keep his composure for the rest of the game, scoring a vital goal just after half-time to pull the way further away from the Gunners.

The midfielder had a scare late on when he was taken off with what looked like a knee injury, but there was no indication after the game it was of a serious nature.

There was reason to be worried of course. Hutchinson retired earlier in his career after a succession of knee injuries while in Chelsea's academy back in 2010. A year later he announced he was returning to football, with the rest helping him heal, and he even made his debut for the club as a late substitute in 2012.

In order to get regular playing time he left the Blues, and has forced his way into the Sheffield Wednesday line-up on a regular basis despite the club's mini-spending spree in the summer after new chairman Dejphon Chansiri took over.

Fans of former club Chelsea who saw his televised performance were impressed, taking to Twitter to convey their delight at seeing him making good on his potential.

Here is a look at the way Sheffield Wednesday fans also raved about his display...
