But it’s not Everton bias? Even Zouma’s Chelsea performances in the title winning Mourinho season were better than any of their current CBs are capable ofTake away the Everton bias - rudiger is a fantastic centre back. He’s better than zouma and any other centre backs we have.
Chelsea's squad is pretty thin ? Read somewhere that they have forty odd players out on loan.Having a look at Chelsea’s squad it’s pretty thin considering they have champions league. Long term injuries to CHO and RLC and Higuain and Kovacic returning to parent clubs. Doesn’t look great for them. Looking at their defenders when you consider their 4th choice Cahill has left. I think that Zouma slots into 3rd choice CB competing with Zapacosta. Rudiger and Luiz as first choice.
Lost cause IMO he has made a lot of noise about wanting to make it at Chelsea and this season is definitely his chance
He made regular appearances in their title winning season and don’t forget Mourinho’s comments in his contribution and potential:The only season he’s been a regular starter they finished 10th.
They've just released Cahill as well. Which leaves them with luiz, rudiger and Christensen who are their only recognised cb's.I get that but why does the ban allow them to sell Hazard but not Zouma, I'd argue Hazard is a lot harder to replace
I view it that he has to re-establish himself at a club with an unproven manager, and that has just lost it's only true world star.They've just released Cahill as well. Which leaves them with luiz, rudiger and Christensen who are their only recognised cb's.
For what it's worth I doubt this will happen now with lampard coming in. Zouma was part of the 4th best defence in the leauge last season and only a fool would a) ignore that and b) leave themselves with only 3 recognised cb's with European competitions to play as well.
