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.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Ruben has been at Chelsea since the age of eight and won a host of honours with the youth teams, both at club and international level. Made the England 2018 World Cup squad but still seems miles away from ever getting a regular place in the Chelsea starting line up. Arguably the best player to…

Antonio Rudiger

After a shaky start when he joined Chelsea from Roma for a fee of 32 million euros, Toni has grown into the role and become one of the fans’ favourites. Guaranteed to give a hundred per cent in every game, something every football fan loves and admires.

Morata

Alvaro Morata

Let us just say he has yet to deliver in a Chelsea shirt and leave it at that.

Andreas Christensen

Andreas Christensen

Christensen arrived as a sixteen year old from Brondby in 2012. After a few years in the youth teams in 2015 he was loaned out to Borussia Monchengladbach for two seasons, winning the club’s player of the year award after an impressive first season. Antonio Conte wanted him in his squad for the 2017/18 season…

Olivier Giroud

Olivier Giroud

Giroud was never a prolific scorer but more a hold the ball up type of centre forward. Makes an ideal foil for Eden Hazard who has never hidden who he prefers to play with up front. And I don’t blame him.

Cesar Azpilicueta

Cesar Azpilicueta

Azpi, or Dave as he is affectionately known, made a quiet entrance in the summer of 2012. Few Chelsea fans had ever heard of him but after just a few games we quickly realized that we were on to something special. Since then he has become a firm favourite with the fans, team captain and…

Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard

Hazard is right up there with the greatest players ever to pull on the Chelsea blue shirt. Many of the goals he scored will go down in the pantheon of greatest Chelsea goals of all time.

David Luiz

David Luiz

Plays football the way you expect a Brazilian to do so – with skill, confidence and joy. Prone to the odd serious lapse in defence but who cares when he is capable of passing a ball with pinpoint accuracy to a teammate 60 yards away. His overhead kick in his debut against Fulham to prevent…

Pedro

Pedro

Pedro is a product of Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy and grew up alongside Messi, Iniesta, Pique and Busquets amongst others. A skilful, wholehearted player with a knack of scoring cracking goals. A touch of consistency would probably elevate him from good to great.
