Premier League

Chelsea Dominates UEFA Team Of The Tournament: Opinion



Navas just won the Trophee des Champions with Paris Saint-Germain, surpassing Rafa Marquez as the player from a CONCACAF country with the most titles in Europe.

Defense Squad.


Benjamin James Chilwell is a left-back for Chelsea in the Premier League and the England national team.

Chilwell's stock rose during a strong 2019/20 season, and he has since established himself as a crucial player at Stamford Bridge, first under Frank Lampard and subsequently under Thomas Tuchel. Chilwell had to adjust to a new position under the German, who has shifted to a three-man defensive, following the management change at Chelsea.


Nobody else could outsmart Rudiger, who makes sure Edouard Mendy's net isn't broken.

Rudiger's dominance was at the core of Thomas Tuchel's final consecutive clean sheet. With the German center-back in attendance, it was the finest defense for Chelsea.

3. Ruben Dias.

The Portugal international, who joined City from Benfica in September for nearly £60 million, has rapidly established himself in the team's developing defense.

Manchester City's defense has been completely altered by Ruben Dias.

In his debut season playing outside of the Portuguese league, the 23-year-old has looked assured and at ease. It's all the more impressive considering how long it takes defenders to adjust to the Premier League's unique obstacles.


Marquinhos, a defender for Paris Saint-Germain, has recently gained greater attention for his performance.

Since being named the new team captain at the start of the season following Thiago Silva's departure, Marquinhos has improved his performance. As a defender, Marquinhos has guided the team to critical victories while also demonstrating his versatility as a midfielder.

Former coach Thomas Tuchel undoubtedly looked to Marquinhos to lead the squad in a number of crucial games during the first half of the season.

Cezar Azpilicueta.

It's incredible that a guy who had never played center-back before a few months ago is now regarded as one of the greatest in the world at the position, but the statistics show why.

In the last three seasons, Azpilicueta has made only one blunder that resulted in an opponent shot. In that time, none of Chelsea's eight defenders who have started more than ten league games have made fewer mistakes. Potential flaws have been transformed into assets. Since the beginning of last season, he has won the most aerial duels of any Chelsea player.


1. Mount.

Some questioned if he was capable of performing at the greatest level, to which he has forcefully responded. Lampard and, later, Thomas Tuchel has deployed Mount in a number of roles. The level of the 22-year-old performer is very high.

2. Kante.

Because of his persistence and perseverance, N'Golo Kante plays a more crucial part than a defensive midfielder. Kante has been one of Chelsea's most important players over the last four seasons, and he is a Premier League legend today.

3. De Bruyne.

Since joining City from Wolfsburg for a million pounds in 2015, De Bruyne has established himself as one of the most consistent players in the Premier League.

In 222 games for Manchester City, the 29-year-old has 57 goals and 89 assists, 20 of which came last season in the Premier League.


1. Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe has contributed more to his team's strike rate than any other player in Ligue 1. This season, the Frenchman has accounted for 30% of his team's goals. With seven assists, he has a total of 28 goals in 27 domestic appearances. He's only 22, so he has a long way to go.

Mbappe, on the other hand, has been particularly spectacular in Europe, scoring eight goals in nine outings. Five of them came in the knockout stages, with three of them coming against Barcelona and two against Bayern Munich. Beware, heavyweights, and minnows: he is a player who doesn't care about the competition.

2. Haaland.

This season, Haaland has been one of the biggest breakout stars in European football, scoring freely in the Champions League for Red Bull Salzburg before moving to the Bundesliga in January and continuing his incredible form.

Despite the fact that Haaland is only 19 years old, Vieri believes he is the best striker in the world and believes he will one day command a transfer fee that will break the global record.
