It is interesting to see how Andreas Christensen has raised the bar for defenders at Euro 2020. As his impressive performances for the Denmark national team serve his country so well, Chelsea supporters must be wondering how it all benefits the club as soon as the season resumes.
Here are some of our assumptions at the moment following the Dane’s rise to prominence at Euros;
No Need Signing A New Defender This Summer
According to a German source, Chelsea have been linked with a summer move for French defender Raphael Varane. But despite the Real Madrid man is immensely experienced, Christensen has outperformed Varane in nearly all aspects at the Euros.
Thus, it would make little sense to pay the £40m Madrid are asking for him.
A More Solid Chelsea Defense
Following the Matchday 1 Christian Eriksen saga, Andreas Christensen and Denmark have recovered from two defeats to win their last two games. In doing so, they’ve also kept their first clean sheet of the tournament.
Chris is no stranger to keeping clean sheets. He helped us to 12 shutouts last season – including one in the most important game of the season, the Champions League final.
With Thomas Tuchel still at the helm, fans can expect a tighter Chelsea defense next season and Christensen could well be at the heart of it.
More Options In Defense
Interestingly, Chelsea have the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, and Cesar Azpilicueta who can play at center-back.
So with Chris proving he is a world-class, something every Chelsea fan should know, Tuchel now have that selection headache every manager loves.
But the question now is what is Chelsea’s best centre-back pairing? Well, the gaffer is spoilt for options!
