Chelsea review: ‘At that point, we were the best team in Europe’

Will Faulks, Talk Chelsea, external

Rating: A 7/10 that feels like 5/10, even though it was was two penalties from staying an 8/10 and a couple of injuries absent from getting a 9/10.

Very best efficiency: The 4- crushing of Juventus in November was the greatest I can try to remember Chelsea actively playing for five or 6 a long time, and at that second we had been the best crew in Europe. It was also, however, the activity the place Ben Chilwell bought hurt and the team’s drop began.

Player of the season: Mason Mount experienced the finest numbers, Thiago Silva was excellent all 12 months, but Reece James performed an 8 or a nine each time he was on the pitch.

Participant whose time is up: It is really the conclude of the line for a large amount of them – I’m delighted to be off the Andreas Christensen rollercoaster in certain though. We waited patiently for him to fulfil his possible and observed some excellent moments in the past two many years, but you generally received the sense he was holding a thing back.

Opposition player you’d appreciate at your staff: Son Heung-min would be outstanding in this system and Thomas Tuchel would adore him as a participant.

Satisfied with your manager? Delighted. It is been a really complicated season but there is full faith in him even with some bad results, which displays just how amazed enthusiasts have been considering that he arrived.

A single learning to choose into subsequent season: Don’t provide your academy gamers mainly because they are not able to get minutes in the to start with workforce only to enable the very first group gamers blocking their paths leave for absolutely free a year afterwards.
