Chelsea: Mudryk already impresses!


Coming into play in the second half on Saturday in the shock against Liverpool (0-0) as part of the 21st day of the Premier League, Mykhailo Mudryk is already making a strong impression across the Channel.

Presented to the public at Stamford Bridge last weekend on the sidelines of the victory against Crystal Palace (1-0), the Ukrainian international was the big attraction of this clash between the Reds and Chelsea at Anfield Road. The former Chakhtar Donetsk player made a remarkable debut with the London club, impressing the British media as well as many specialists. Launched in the 55th minute by Graham Potter, Mudryk gave a taste of his qualities of percussion and speed and could even have scored his first goal after the hour mark after a small festival in the opposing box.

A transfer to justify

Arrived a few days ago at Chelsea against a check for 100 million euros (bonus included), the Ukrainian winger arrives with the status of future star and will have to quickly meet the expectations of his management. Presented by some as a possible future Ballon d’Or in the image of his former coach at Donestk Roberto De Zerbi, Mudryk clearly has exceptional qualities but will have to prove on the lawns of the Premier League that he can still cross several levels.

Gerrard’s flattering comparison

The profile of the Blues rookie, long announced at Arsenal in recent weeks, has already won over Steven Gerrard. The former Liverpool midfielder even dares a bold comparison. “He looks like a real player, some of his moves today are exceptional. He reminded me a bit of Arjen Robben, his first touch wasn’t good but from there his footwork, his quickness, the way he handled the ball, I would be very excited if I was at Chelsea ”entrusted the emblematic former captain of the Reds to the microphone of BT Sports.
