Top 3 performers from Chelsea vs Rennes
Mason Mount has a lot of critics in the Chelsea fanbase. However his work ethic can be doubted by none. The youngster works tirelessly to win the ball back and did exactly that throughout the match.
Mount single handedly created the first goal by winning the ball back and then passing a wonderful cross field ball for Callum Hudson Odoi.
While Chelsea have spent big in acquiring the services of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Ben Chilwell there’s one silent Assassin who’s done the most benefit. Eduoard Mendy has upgraded Chelsea to a whole new level with his performances.
The former Rennes player returned to haunt his former side with a dominant performance. It can be easily said that Chelsea could be behind on a couple of occasions if not for the presence of Eduoard Mendy.
Olivier Giroud yet again comes to the rescue of Chelsea with a last minute bullet header. The initial effort fluffed by Timo Werner fell kindly for Giroud who leaped up to head the ball in.
Chelsea are supposedly looking to offload Olivier Giroud in January. Frank Lampard may well look to keep the Frenchman given how he has the knack of securing important goals.
