Will Kurt’s absence hurt Chelsea ?
Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge saw Kurt Zouma suffer a horrific injury, damaging his anterior cruciate ligament after landing awkwardly on his right leg. He now faces a long six month road to recovery meaning Chelsea will have to make-do without him for the rest of the season and perhaps even a bit beyond. Can they cope?
Fantasy Football game www.oulala.com have taken a closer look at Zouma’s league stats in 2016 to see how much of an impact the 21-year old has had.
There is no doubt that Chelsea need to see off opponents and win more matches. However after six games and three clean sheets, the Blues remain undefeated in 2016. Oulala’s stats show that Zouma has played a vital part in Chelsea’s recent run of good form and will be sorely missed.
With a total 19, Zouma has the highest number of aerial duels won in the whole Chelsea squad. He also has the highest success rate at 79 per cent of any outfield player. Ironically it was Zouma contesting for a high ball that led to his injury. Nevertheless his aerial presence and superiority will be sorely missed by the Blues.
