Ramires has taken to social media to send a tribute to Chelsea new-boy Kenedy as the Blues prepare for their crunch Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Ramires is set to undergo a late fitness test ahead of this weekend’s game after picking up a minor muscle injury in recent days.

Kenedy, who joined the Blues in late August, played the full 90 minutes as Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over Norwich City last weekend.

And his compatriot Ramires paid tribute to the teenager with a post on Instagram on Friday evening.

Ramires shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Tmj brother @kenedy 💪🏿✌🏿️ #parceria #friendship”
