The one player that has not featured since arriving during the summer is Danny Drinkwater. He has been getting over a calf injury and has yet to take the field and his arrival has been forgotten a little bit.
He arrives under a little pressure, some have said that he is not what Chelsea needs; while others posit that he is not Chelsea’s quality.
He is, however, English and this is essential as the Blues compete in the Champions League. However, the true value is his skill, experience, and a great partnership with N’golo Kante.
The partnership that won the premier league for Leicester city had Ngolo Kante and Drinkwater in the midfield. This alone is a statement that the entire premier league must be afraid of.
If the coming of Kante to Chelsea midfield last season gave them the trophy, then the arrival of the man that helped him achieve the magical feat in Leicester will hopefully bring even more trophies to Chelsea. So, its hard to see why Danny Drinkwater will not thrive at Stamford Bridge.
Even Emenalo Likes Him
Even the most distrusted man at the club likes him.
Citing why he is a good fit for the team, Micheal Emenalo, the sporting director, posted that he is a premier league winner, as well as an experienced Champions League player. These experiences are actually invaluable.
He is tenacious, he can shoot at long range, and he can provide a consistent back up over a long season.
Will Danny Drinkwater Play At Chelsea
Moving to Chelsea was a risk for Drinkwater, there is always a risk he could do a Steve Sidwell. However, he has achieved more than Sidwell before he moved to the club.
We have four quality midfielders in the squad and with the club in competition on multiple fronts they should get plenty of game time.
