Chelsea are among the biggest clubs in Europe and have some world class players in their squad, as they are known to always spend huge amount of money in the transfer market to acquire top talented players, which has been a hindrance to the players coming through there academy ranks to make wave in the first team.
But in recent season, Chelsea have focused more on integrating youth players from their academy into the first team which have seen the likes of Mason Mount, Callum Hodson-Odoi, Andres Christensen and few others are now getting regular playing time in the first team.
Chelsea have always been a goal scoring team and don't depend on a single player to provide or carry all the goal scoring burden, as goals can come from any part of the team.
This has been the culture at the club since the departure of Didier Drobga who was one of the most prolific strikers that the club has ever produced.
In this current Chelsea squad, virtually every Chelsea first team player has been a goal scorer for the club at least once, except one player.
So in this article, we will be looking at the only Chelsea player that is yet to score a goal for the club in his entire playing career for the first team.
Christensen began his career at Brondby and joined Chelsea at the age of 15 in February 2012, making his professional debut in October 2014. From 2015 to 2017 he was loaned to Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach, where he made 82 appearances and scored 7 goals.
The Denmark international returned back to Chelsea after his impressive two years loan spell with the German club, and has been a part of the Chelsea first team squad since then.
After making over 100 senior team appearances for Chelsea, the 25 years old is only the current player in the Chelsea squad that is yet to score a single goal for the club across all competitions.
He has been a constant player in Thomas Tuchel's starting eleven this season, and he has improved his defensive game massively, but his offensive side has not be good like that of his defensive colleagues, Kurt zouma and Thiago Silva.
Between Chelsea's four center backs this season, Christensen, Thiago Silva, Kurt zouma and Anthony Rudiger, which is the most trusted center back you prefer the most this season?
