As it is an international break and we all generally dislike the absence of domestic football, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on the season so far, or at least how the players are performing so far.
Who Scored is a statistical website that looks at a number of different elements to form their ratings of a player throughout the season.
Don’t forget it’s FREE to subscribe to my new venture Si Phillips Talks Chelsea and get exclusive news, weekly newsletters, Podcasts with massive guests such as Tony Mount and Fabrizio Romano, tactical analysis, and general Chelsea news. All for FREE!
I enjoy using the site because it goes deep into all stats rather than just goals, assists, and clean sheets.
Chelsea’s top 5 rated players so far this season isn’t as obvious as you’d think.
Mason Mount is perhaps the only exception, with no surprise to see him leading the table on a 7.34 rating.
Next is Kurt Zouma on 7.22, Antonio Rudiger on 7.06, our captain Cesar Azpilicueta on 7.00, and Reece James on 6.99.
It is worth remembering that these ratings are for Premier League appearances only.
