Two Chelsea players dominate creative duties this season

Creatively this season, Chelsea are a two man show.

Mason Mount and Reece James each got an assist last night, taking them to 10 and 7 for the season respectively in the Premier League.

To beat their total of 17, you’d need a whole bunch of other Blues.

Next on the list is Mateo Kovacic with 5, then N’Golo Kante, and Marcos Alonso with 4 apiece.

You’d then need Hakim Ziyech (3) plus Kai Havertz (3) added to that trio to beat James and Mount together.

That’s credit to the phenomenally productive season they’ve each had, but also reminds us that the rest of the squad need to step up. As we saw with James and Ben Chilwell this season, injury can strike at any time, and if your team is too reliant on one or two players, you’re left in a real hole once they’re out.

We can’t expect our academy pair to be this productive every season.
