Chelsea have played eleven matches in the 2021/2022 Premier League stage. Of the 11 duels that have been played, which players are the reserve specialists?
Of the 11 times played, Chelsea recorded only one defeat, namely 0-1 to Manchester City. The Blues also temporarily topped the standings with 26 points.
So far, Chelsea have scored 27 goals. On the other hand, Thomas Tuchel’s men are very solid in defense with just four goals conceded.
The following is a review of Chelsea’s reserve specialist players in the first 11 matches they have played in the Premier League season 2021/22 in full.
Having been estranged from the Chelsea squad since returning from a loan spell at Aston Villa, Barkley is slowly getting his chance to play from Tuchel. Its contribution is arguably still not significant.
Kepa has had to be a prisoner at Chelsea since the arrival of Edouard Mendy. The Spanish goalkeeper is now only the main choice in minor events.
In the Premier League this season, Kepa has only been trusted to appear once, namely in the match against the hosts Tottenham. As a result, he managed to keep a clean sheet and Chelsea won 3-0.
This season Pulisic had bad luck due to injury. Therefore, so far the player from the United States has only played twice.
From those two matches, Pulisic managed to score one goal in the party versus Crystal Palace in the opening weekend.
Became a new Chelsea recruit and immediately played as a starter when Chelsea faced Aston Villa.
After that, Saul was never again trusted to appear until then he got the opportunity to play in the match against Newcastle, even though it was only two minutes.
So far, Malang Sarr has only been trusted to appear in the Premier League, precisely in the match against the host Brentford in mid-October.
At that time, Sarr appeared quite impressive by bringing his team to keep a clean sheet and win 1-0.
Hakim Ziyech’s appearance on the Chelsea wing is still far from expectations. The Morocco international has yet to make a significant contribution to the league this season.
Lately Loftus-Cheek regularly got the opportunity to play from Tuchel, although only as a substitute.
Loftus-Cheek also contributed two assists, each against Southampton and Norwich City.
