Chelsea has one of the best squad depths as they plan to renew contracts of 4 players. According to Goal, the club officials have confirmed the plans for contract renewals. The most urgent issues are Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger because they are at Stamford Bridge till the season ends.
The presence of Antonio Rudiger has been key. He along with Kurt Zouma helped the Blues win their second UCL title. Andreas Christensen is often not played in the starting XI but is always influential. Often as he comes off the bench, he has proven to be solid.
Trevor Chalobah, a Chelsea academy graduate has impressed Thomas Tuchel. He got his debut in August and what an amazing debut it was. The club officials are positive that a contract renewal will be agreed upon. Chelsea plans to also extend the contract of young star Mason Mount till 2024. Mason Mount has been phenomenal for the Blues as he played a key role in their UCL winning season.
Chelsea defenders best in the world currently?
Besides Thomas Tuchel playing his team under a defensive system, the defenders have been brilliant. Chelsea has kept more clean sheets (15) than goals conceded this season (14). They have registered a total of 24 clean sheets in 38 games. The backline has only conceded three goals till now. With experience and talent at the backline, Chelsea is one of the most difficult teams to break down.
However, it is not only the great backline but also the work of the goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy. Currently, he is regarded as one of the best shot-stopping goalkeepers He commands the team well, makes difficult saves and has 30 clean sheets in 53 appearances for Chelsea. Altogether Chelsea is a rigid team and certainly not easy to score against.
