Here we look at the shortest Chelsea players in 2020. So who are the shortest Chelsea football players?
N’Golo Kante height? Pedro height? Willian height? Who are the smallest Chelsea players? Chelsea has a lot of big players in their team but they also have quite a few small players too.
Everyone has probably noticed that the world’s best defensive midfielder N’Golo Kante is small, but did you know that there’s another Chelsea player who’s shorter? Yeah me neither, and I was surprised, to say the least.
It’s quite interesting to compare your height with Chelsea players to see how you’d line up next to them. All figures are taken from TransferMarkt.com. So here we look at the Chelsea FC Shortest Players 2020:
5. Willian is one of Chelsea FC Shortest Players – 1.75m
Willian has been Chelsea’s best player recently and has created and scored some fantastic goals. I actually never realized that Willian was one of Chelsea’s shortest players at 1.75m.
The Brazilian has been shown trust by Chelsea when they turned down a massive offer for the player from Barcelona despite his age.
4. Christian Pulisic is one the Chelsea FC Shortest Players – 1.73m
Pulisic has scored 6 goals and 3 assists in his first season with the Blues. He might have more competition in the first team next season, now that Hakim Ziyech is set to come in from Ajax.
Alonso initially had doubts over Pulisic, who Chelsea signed for £58m in January last year. The USA international was bound to face physical challenges in the Premier League but he very quickly overcame them with his quick feet and intelligent runs.
3. Pedro is one the shortest Chelsea FC player – 1.69m
Pedro is one of the Chelsea FC shortest players standing at 1.67m (5 ft 6 in), Pedro is surprisingly strong. You don’t often see him getting bullied by bigger opposition players.
It’s a surprise though that Pedro is shorter than N’Golo Kante. Pedro has had a good season with Chelsea FC this season and has his best goal return ever in a Chelsea shirt. However, he could be on his way out next season depending on what happens over the summer due to his age.
Pedro has a low center of gravity due to his scent right which allows him to twist and turn with the ball at his feet.
2. N’Golo Kante is one of the Chelsea FC Shortest Players -1.68m
I was actually very surprised to learn that N’Golo Kante is not Chelsea’s shortest player. He looks tiny compared to some players, especially the defenders like Jorginho and Antonio Rudiger.
Standing at 1.68m tall (5 ft 6 1/2 in) he is smaller than average but this short height allows him to tackle defenders from the blind side without being seen. He also can adjust his body and legs so quickly to allow him to tackle or intercept.
Kante must be the best small footballer in the world right now (excluding Lionel Messi of course).
1. Billy Gilmour is the shortest Chelsea FC Shortest Players -1.68m
Gilmour has been called old-school, demonstrating all the traits of an all-round central midfielder. He can play in the central pivot, intercept passes, tackle opposition players, and at the same time, create plays, deliver key passes, and stretch the pitch for his team. The 18-year-old follows old tapes of Cesc Fabregas religiously and the effort clearly shows on the field.
He is viewed as the next generation of top talents at Stamford Bridge, one who can lead the team for years to come under Frank Lampard.
