Gonzalo Higuain
Cesc Fabregas

Cesc Fabregas

The pass master of the Premier League. Fabregas has both the vision and the skill to split open a defence with a single 50 yard pinpoint pass. His partnership with Diego Costa in season 2016/17 will go down in Chelsea history. As will his pass against Man City for Costa’s goal in that game.

Danny Drinkwater

Danny Drinkwater

Danny was another deadline signing, arriving in the summer 2017. Never really given a proper chance by Conte and it looks like he is going to get even less game time under Sarri. One half of the central midfield partnership in Leicester’s title winning team, Drinkwater was one of those signings which make you think…

Jorginho

Jorginho

Born in Brazil but naturalized Italian, Jorginho was Maurizio Sarri’s first signing from his old club Napoli. Chelsea’s play goes through him practically all the time and in a few short weeks has set records for number of passes in a game. But is he good enough to justify Kante having to play out of…

Mateo Kovacic

Mateo Kovacic

Kovacic is on a season long loan from Real Madrid.  Although still only 23 years old He has played at senior level for Dinamo Zagreb, Inter, Real Madrid as well as nearly 50 times for Croatia. Kovacic is a neat midfield player ideally suited for Sarri’s quick short passing game.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

If this guy can learn to write his name, or even remember it, he is capable of everything in life. Chelsea had to pay the full 80 million euro release clause to get him from Athletic Bilbao, making him the most expensive goalkeeper in the world. All Chelsea can hope is that he turns out…

Ngolo Kante

Ngolo Kante

Signed in the summer of 2016 after a memorable year with Leicester, he hit stratospheric levels the following season shielding the defence in Conte’s 3 – 5 – 2 formation. He was voted Player of the Year both at the PFA and the Sportswriters’ awards in Chelsea’s title winning season. Since Sarri’s arrival he has…

Willy Caballero

Signed on a free from Man City in the summer of 2017 as backup for Courtois, Willy has never let the team down when called upon.

Ross Barkley

Ross Barkley

Barkley was the great hope of English football a few years ago but lost his way after a series of injuries kept him on the sidelines for long periods. Arrived at the club far from fit but a proper pre-season, a first in many a year has seen him closer to the form he is…

Rob Green

Rob Green

You get the feeling that Robert Green was signed to satisfy FA requirements for a number of home grown in the squad – you need eight in case you were wondering. And Fabregas and Christensen count as home grown players. Unlikely to get any playing time given he was brought in as third choice keeper.
