Chelsea Players Who Might not Feature for the Club Despite Being in the Squad List this Season

Chelsea has a very wide squad this season and many talents at the coach's disposal, for this reason, it will be difficult for some players to get some minutes on the pitch despite appearing on the squad list. Due to high competition for minutes on the pitch, the following players will find it hard to feature for the club this season;

1. Marcus Bettinelli

The English goalkeeper who joined the club last summer from Fulham after spending the previous season on loan at Middlesbrough is considered the third goalkeeper of the club. He is falling behind Mendy who is currently in form of his life and Kepa who is currently on the verge of regaining his lost form. Being behind these two top-class goalkeepers makes Marcus' chances of featuring for the club this season very slim.

2. Lewis Baker

After spending many years on loan, Baker decided to settle at Chelsea this season and fight for a chance in the first team, things have not however gone as planned for the English midfielder who has found it hard to feature in the teamsheet this season, in a midfield comprising of Kante, Kovacic, Jorginho, Loftus Cheek, Barkley, and Saul, Baker will hardly get a chance to represent the club despite being in Chelsea squad this season.

3. Xavier Mbuyamba

The defender who was promoted from the academy to senior team by Tuchel at the beginning of this season will find it hard to feature for the club this season. Facing stiff competition from elite defenders like Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Christensen, and Azpliqueta for a chance on the starting eleven of the team, and also facing rivalry from other great players like Chaloba and Sarr who have proved themselves on loan and have impressed the coach so far this season. Getting a chance in the team will be an uphill task for the English defender.
