UEFA has today announced a number of players who were impressive during the 2020/21 Champions League tournament to battle for Champions League positional awards. The honors will be given to the best goalkeeper, defender, midfield and forward and will be announced during the 2021/22 draws, to be held at Istanbul on 26th August.
Chelsea Players who made it to the list: Goalkeeper: An outstanding performance by Eduord Mendy had been recognized and will battle for the best goalkeeper award. However, a stiff competition from Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois and Manchester City's Ederson, awaits the Senegalese shot stopper.
Defenders: There will be two Chelsea stars in this Category. Spanish Chelsea captain Cezar Azpillicueta will face an tough opponent in German's Antonio Rudiger. Ruben Dias of Manchester City will also be scrambling for the defender's award.
Midfield: Two Chelsea midfield partners made up for this spot. Football magician Ng'olo Kante could not miss, Jorginho is part of the list while Kevin DeBruyne is also present.
