Gary Cahill

Gary Cahill

An old style English centre half, much loved by the fans for his heroics at the heart of the Chelsea defence, not least on that memorable night in Munich in 2012. Cahill has been in a leading figure in every Chelsea success since his unheralded arrival in January 2012 – dependable, brave and 100% committed…

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Like Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum has won loads of honours at youth level, including the Under 17 World Cup with England. Electric pace, fantastic ball and dribbling skills, the kid has it all to make it all the way to the top. The million dollar question is will it be a Chelsea?

Marcus Alonso

Marcus Alonso

When he was signed on transfer deadline day prior to the start of season 20116/17 many thought he was a desperate last minute signing. Once Conte brought him on as a wing back he quickly developed as a vital cog in the all conquering team of that season. Under Sarri he is being utilized as…

Ethan Umpadu

Ethan Umpadu

Another youngster who made a big hit whenever given a chance in the first team. Chelsea fans hope to see him make a big impact in the team without having to go out on loan to a lower league team. Could do with a decent hairdresser.

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.

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…

Kepa

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…
