Chelsea finally returns to the top of the Premier League table after putting up an impressive performance against stubborn Brentford today. It wasn't an easy win for the blues, but they managed to fight till the End. The Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy performed excellently well today, he came through for Chelsea when necessary and Chelsea managed to hold on to their 1-0 lead all thanks to him. But everyone seems to forget about Christensen who also had equal impact with Mendy today against Brentford fc.
Christensen deserves to be showered the same praises Mendy is getting now. Nobody seems to be talking about him. Christensen had a great contribution in Chelsea's winning today. He played more like Thiago Silva in terms of experience and calculation. His brilliance helped coordinate Chelsea's back-line.
Christensen today was technically strong for a defender in terms of bringing the ball forward, passing and making good choices. He was foresighted and fast at the same time today. He helped distrupt some Brenford's counter-attacks. Christensen is one of the best defenders Chelsea has at the moment, he was enormously Intelligent on the pitch. He was very quick to anticipate all situation both offensively and defensively.
In my own view, Christensen's performance derserved equal praises like Edouard Mendy.
