Former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell believes there’s no one better than Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger in the Premier League when he’s in the mood.

“He’s really stepped up to the plate not only defensively but on the ball as well,” Sidwell told BT Sport.

“Some of the drives out for the ball to come out and start attacks for Chelsea. If they let him go, who do you replace him with? He’s invaluable.

“He can play passes forward – he ventures forward when he needs to.

“Defensively the last few games he’s slipped. He’s let runners go and let’s his go of his position quite a lot.

“But when he’s on it, there’s no one better in the Premier League.”
