Mousa Dembele is backing Nacer Chadli to flourish in the second half the season.

The winger was rewarded by new Head Coach Tim Sherwood for his fine cameo off the bench in the win at Southampton with a start against West Brom on Boxing Day.

Nacer had three shots at goal, three successful tackles and an 81 per cent passing accuracy in a 75-minute stint as it ended 1-1 against a stubborn Baggies side at the Lane.

That was Nacer's 10th appearance and seventh start in the Premier League and Mousa, his Belgian international team-mate, expects more to come.

"I know Nacer very well and I know he is an unbelievable player," he said.

"I think he's done well. He hasn't played that much yet but I know when he does everyone will be even more surprised with what he can do."
