Chelsea have one of the biggest and best strengths in depth in world football, and that really has been shining through in recent matches.
With injuries to the likes of N’Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic, Romelu Lukaku, and Timo Werner to contend with recently, Chelsea have had to find solutions and fill gaps.
It would be amazing if you guys subscribed for my project over at Si & Dan Talk Chelsea, where we are putting out so much Chelsea content including DAILY Newsletters, exclusive news, breaking news, Podcasts, interviews, inside information, and bringing in some massive guests!
But not only have they done this, they have still been managing to fill those gaps with quality and produce great performances and keeping their spot at the top of the Premier League whilst also topping their Champions League group.
The injuries gave an opportunity for Callum Hudson-Odoi to finally get a run of games in his preferred position in attack, and he has been brilliant.
In fact, he’s been ‘scary brilliant’ according to former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips, who has been speaking with Football London this week.
He’s also been detailing how good Chelsea’s squad depth is…
“Callum Hudson-Odoi has come in and been scary brilliant as well, said Wright-Phillips.
“Ross has been brought in from the cold and played really well and Loftus-Cheek.
“The competition there is healthy and Pulisic is back and scoring goals, so that now Mason Mount is under pressure and if they get him back to where he was last year, Chelsea become this frightening force with attacking players.
“Then they’ve got Rom up front and Timo Werner and if he can get them all firing, especially while the defenders and Mendy are keeping clean sheets, it’s going to be a scary team to play against.
“With the depth and the quality they have in that team Chelsea are in the position of winning all five [trophies they are competing for] because they’re good enough. They could possibly win all five but Manchester City and Liverpool aren’t going to sit there and let that happen.”
