It’s the half way of the season and the league standing says it all. Chelsea are the third best team in the league. After our games so far in the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup, I present to you the top 5 best Chelsea players in this season’s first half.
The Danish defender has been one shinning light in Chelsea’s topsy-curvy season so far. He has put in strings of impressive displays to win the heart of manager, Antonio Conte and the Chelsea faithful. His statistics are quite impressive for his young age. He has contributed to 5 clean sheets, recording 53% tackle success, made 17 interceptions, 51 headed clearances, 65 ball recoveries, and 52 duels won. The 21 year is already showing maturity and belief beyond his age and deserves to keep his place in the Chelsea team. On evidence, he’s the likeliest star to succeed John Terry as the latest academy produce to be a first team regular.
The Spanish striker has been a good signing for Chelsea. With 9 goals and 4 assists from 16 games, Morata has been a relative success at Chelsea. For a player who is playing as first choice striker for the first time in his career, his strides in front of goal has been quite admirable and promising.
The mercurial playmaker has been at his brilliant best all season. His goals and assists have been huge contributions to Chelsea’s silverware ambitions this season. He connects the midfield and attack and is the glue that binds the team.
The midfield workhorse has been another outstanding performer for Chelsea this season. His work rate on and off the ball, interceptions, tackles and midfield domination has been superb. His importance to the team was made obvious in his spell on the sidelines when injured as Chelsea suffered without him.
The Chelsea Vice-Captain has been another top performer this season. The tough-tackling, bullish and charismatic defender has earned a commanding respect across the football globe with series of impressive displays and his versatility in the team. His attacking contributions have also been impressive as his telepathy with Morata has been successful.
