France have nominated the players who could get hold of the Ballon d'or award this season. The 5 Chelsea players who made the list are Azplicueta, Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku, Jorginho and N'golo Kante.

Ballon d'or is an award given to the player with the best individual performance through out a season. Judging from that definition, no Chelsea player has the capability of winning the award.

The reason is because Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi has the highest individual performance last season. They both made over 45 goal contributions in all competitions and they both lifted major trophies.

Lionel Messi won the COPA AMERICAN trophy while Lewandowski won the Bundesliga trophy.

Jorginho is the nearest Chelsea player who might finish 3rd on the list. He won the UCL, EURO and Super cup trophies all in one season.

He would have been the favourite to win this award if he was an attacker. Apart from Jorginho, no other Chelsea player has what it takes to win the Ballon d'or award.

Its already a great honour for them to be nominated and the world will remember them for that. N'golo Kante would have been a top contender if France won the EURO 2020 trophy.
