Mason Mount scored in the quarter final and against Real Madrid in the semi final, the Englishman also provided an assist for Kai Havertz as he scored in the final. N'golo Kante was an important player in Chelsea's Champions League journey, he won back to back player of the match and also won the UEFA midfielder of the season award.

Romelu Lukaku won the Italian Serie A title with Inter Milan last season ending Juventus' years of dominance. The Belgian forward was also one of Europe's top scorers last season. Cesar Azpilicueta captained Chelsea to their second Champions League title, he has now won every title with Chelsea except the FIFA Club World Cup. Jorginho won the Champions League, Super Cup and the EUROS, the Italian midfielder is seen in the top three favourites to win the award.
