Chelsea appear to have found their best defence setup under Mauricio Pochettino. Marc Cucurella who previously struggled for game time at the start of the season has been in top form so far.
The former Brighton player managed to keep Mitoma at bay during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Brighton in the EFL Cup. Cucurella was also impressive against Fulham, he attempted two tackles, won one aerial, made one interception and had 91% passing accuracy during the match.
Mauricio Pochettino decides to use Marc Cucurella as right-back since James is still out injured while Malo Gusto is serving suspension.
Levi Colwill played as a left-back against Fulham and was one of the best players on the pitch during the match. The England International assisted Mudryk for his goal, won 3 aerials, attempted 3 tackles, made one interception and had 82% passing accuracy during the match.
Thiago Silva and Axel Disasi have formed an impressive CB partnership at Chelsea since the start of the season. The two players were also impressive against Fulham. Chelsea have conceded just 6 goals in the premier league this season.
