Chelsea’s best rated players all at the back for Tuchel’s tough tackling Blues

Chelsea have not had the best start to the season, despite being top of the league.

They’ve had some gritty performances, and some got through some tough moments, but they’re not looking at all fluid, especially going forward.

So who are the best performing players at this stage of the season? A glance at WhoScored’s ratings for the season so far reveals some interesting things.

Firstly, you’ve got to exclude Malang Sarr and Christian Pulisic. They’ve both played well, but they’ve only had one start each in the Premier League.

Of the players who have started more than two games, it’s the impressive Trevoh Chalobah who comes out on top with a 7.62 rating.

Up next is Thiago Silva, then comes Marcos Alonso.

Perhaps it should be no surprise that our top 3 are all defenders, given our struggles going forwards this season. Let’s hope that in a month or two, there’s a little more balance.
