Chelsea are a team on the rise. They are capable of doing extremely well this season and have a chance at every single competition they will play in. They will face some strong opposition but with the way they are playing and under the system they're playing in, a major trophy is expected from them.
Here are their best players so far this season in the Premier League.
The fullback has all but replaced Ben Chilwell in that left wingback role and he seems to be making it his own. The Spaniard has gotten a goal and an assist as well as looking like one of their most dangerous players even though he is technically a defender. But Tuchel's system allows for this type of freedom.
2. Thiago Silva
Silva is arguably one of the best defenders in the league so far. His leadership has helped the defence to better organise themselves at the back and make sure the opposition create as few chances as possible. He is one of the reasons why Chelsea have only conceded just one goal.
It seems like Chelsea's most productive players this season are the defensive ones as Thomas Tuchel's system is inherently a defensive one which defensive players can thrive in. Mendy has made some very crucial saves this season.
4. Mateo Kovacic
The midfielder seems to be more proactive this season as he has been allowed to roam up and down the pitch in order to fashion chances for himself and his teammates. His 3 assists are a testament to that fact.
5. Romelu Lukaku
The Belgian striker hit a wonderful run of form in his first few games for the team. Even when he does not score, he looks absolutely dangerous and could score a goal at any point in the Match. He is also their top scorer so far with 3 goals.
