Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has named the player Chelsea have missed badly this season.

According to Cascarino, the Blues have missed German international Antonio Rudiger this season. Rudiger has played just 45 minutes of football for Chelsea this season due to injury.

Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori are Chelsea’s first choice centre-back pairing but Cascarino believes the pair are yet to impress.

“I think there’s a lot of learning to be done with Tomori and Zouma,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“They’re a partnership that Frank trusts, but there are mistakes there too regularly.

“They’re both young men in the early part of their career, but big clubs don’t allow you to go through this period of indifference.

“They miss Rudiger enormously, because he is their best natural defender.”
