Chelsea bounced back from a tough September to a really strong October on all fronts, and they had two first team players – as well as one player out on loan – nominated for the fans Player of the Month award.
Reece James is first up, keeping 3 clean sheets in 3 games, and scoring 3 goals. Those numbers are just indisputably incredible, and show just the type of form the England full back is in.
He’s joined on the list by the man doing a similar job down the other flank – Ben Chilwell. He managed 4 appearances, from which he generated 3 goals and 3 clean sheets.
6 goals in a month from wing back – that’s just ridiculous, and shows exactly where our strengths are at the moment.
Also up for the award is Conor Gallagher, who is on loan at Crystal Palace. His team had a great month, culminating in a truly impressive win over Man City at the City of Manchester stadium.
