The “outrageous” Chelsea ace, who departed for nothing and is now outscoring Mudryk

According to footballfancast, Chelsea is one of the most inconsistent teams in the Premier League this season, but that’s also what makes them so intriguing to watch, at least from a neutral perspective. Mauricio Pochettino’s team is capable of earning a point against Manchester City at the Etihad and drawing with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, but they can also lose 4-1 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Given the amount of young and somewhat inexperienced players in the roster, the club’s topsy-turvy character is understandable, but it begs the question of how successful the team could be with a few more experienced players. In fact, one former Blues star who was released for free a few years ago has outperformed Mykhaylo Mudryk this season, a player Poch would undoubtedly have preferred to have in the squad.

How has Mykhailo Mudryk performed this season?

Now, where the young Ukrainian was a complete catastrophe for the Blues last season, with only two assists in 17 games, he has been relatively well this season. In 25 appearances for Pochettino, he has four goals, including an unusual one against Arsenal, and three assists.

While it’s not quite the return you’d expect from a £62 million player, it’s certainly a step in the right direction. He also appears to have the support of his boss, who stated, “He’s already an important player, but he’s going to improve a lot because his potential is massive.”

However, while he might be a world-beater in a few years, Chelsea now lacks game-changers, which must be annoying to witness Willian ripping it up for Fulham just down the road.
