Football is all about trophies and awards. Trophies are usually a result of team brilliance while awards are usually a result of individual brilliance.
Every Premier League club has a culture of awarding their best player of the season and Chelsea is no exception.
Chelsea usually awards based on fans’ votes. The last edition was won by Mason Mount and he deserves full credit for that.
He recorded a total number of goals and assists across all competitions. One vital role Mount brings to the Chelsea team is his energy.
He started this season slowly but he has now found the form that will make him win the best player award at the end of the season.
Below are the reasons.
1. He tops the goal scorer chart for Chelsea
Despite starting this season in a less impressive form, he has gone ahead to be the top scorer for Chelsea in the premier league.
His breakthrough came when he scored a hat trick against Norwich and now has 7 goals to his name in the premier league.
If he continues his goal-scoring form till the end of the season, he may win the award.
2. He tops the assist chart for Chelsea in the Premier League
Assist creation is a vital aspect of football games and Mason Mount is the top assist provider for the club in the Premier League.
He has a total of 7 assists and he is followed by Reece James who has 6 to his name.
If he continues this till the end of the season, he is likely going to win the best player award
3. He has the highest number of shots.
Mason Mount has an impressive tally of 49 shots in the Premier League above every other Chelsea player.
He is followed by Hakim Ziyech who has 38 shots to his name.
If Mason Mount continues this form till the end of the season, he will likely win the best player award.
However, there are also top contenders for the award, the likes of Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, and Hakim Ziyech.
Kai Havertz has been in the best form of his career at Chelsea. He has been scoring goals for fun recent matches and if he continues this form, he will be in contention for the best player award.
Thiago Silva can best be described as a wall, he is largely responsible for the impressive defensive record that Chelsea has. His form put him in contention for the best player award.
Antonio Rudiger is almost like a new player ever since Thomas Tuchel took over the reins from Frank Lampard. He is also in contention for the best player award.
Edouard Mendy is considered by many as the best goalkeeper in the world and they are not far from the truth. His heroics this season have helped Chelsea win a lot of games and kept them in different competitions.
