(Video): Rudiger shows off prodigious skill

Antonio Rudiger is an excellent physical player, with a good balance of speed, strength and agility for a modern centreback.

He used that frame expertly for Chelsea’s first goal today, getting over two Stoke defenders with a mighty leap that gave him a fantastic angle on the ball.

His technique on the header was expert too, lunging his head forward to impact force on the ball, which flew past Jack Butland.
