Chelsea FC Players Salaries 2022 – Weekly Wages 2021/22

Chelsea Players Salary Per Week 2022 Chelsea FC is one of the best football clubs in England and has attained a big reputation in European club football under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. However, the search is on for a new owner and we wait to see who the entity will be. The Blues as they are fondly called, are presently under the management of German tactician Thomas Tuchel. The German boss led them to triumph in the UEFA Champions League in the 2020/21 season, making it two UCL trophies under Roman Abramovich. The Blues have some decent and world-class players in their ranks and these players have proved themselves over the years with performances that have made the London club more popular and attracted more fans in the process.

The history of Chelsea’s big-money strikers

Image Credit: “Didier Drogba”, by rayand licensed under CC BY 2.0 Since Roman Abramovich became the owner of Chelsea in 2003, the west London side have signed 22 strikers, including Romelu Lukaku twice. It is fair to say those signings have brought varying degrees of success, and have come at vast expense. The struggles of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku this season have been well noted, and Chelsea’s failure to score enough goals from their attacking players under Thomas Tuchel has been a primary reason they have fallen away from Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the league. According to odds sourced via GamblingDeals, the Blues are now 13/2 to retain their CL title and will need Lukaku and Werner to find some form if they want to achieve that goal. In this article...

Chelsea 2021-22: What to expect from the season ahead

Winning the UCL in grand style would relax nerves and dampen the pressure in many top teams in Europe but not at Chelsea.  Four European trophies in 10 years perfectly depict the hunger for success at Chelsea and it will be the same in the coming season.  Here’s a quick look at how things might be next season in the various departments of the current European champions. Goalkeeping The acquisition of Edouard Mendy from Rennes proved to be arguably the best piece of business Chelsea did last summer. With 24 clean sheets in 43 appearances, no other goalkeeper in Europe had a better season statistically.  Compared to the previous season that saw Kepa Arrizabalaga fluff his lines so much, the solidity of the Chelsea backline was down to Mendy’s wonderful performances between the sti...

Chelsea’s treatment of Abraham leaves much to be desired

Chelsea emerged victoriously in the UEFA Champions League in the 2020/21 season in a short time under Thomas Tuchel, and it remains the talking point at the club ahead of the 2021/22 season. The triumph was one that nobody saw coming, considering how they struggled under Frank Lampard before the arrival of the German. Despite this major success, one issue at the club leaves much to be desired and it is the club's or maybe Tuchel's treatment of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham. It's no more news that loyalty in the game favors the bosses and I wrote an article concerning the issue some time ago. Tammy Abraham was one of the stars whom the onus fell on to help Chelsea maintain their place in the Premier League during the transfer ban under a manager who was still learning the ropes....

Mason Mount is a force that has come to stay

The transfer ban against Chelsea did them a lot of good and continues to do so even after the departure of Frank Lampard. The Englishman was tasked with managing the Blues during the torrid period of no major acquisitions and he chose to stick with one young English player who has proven that he has the quality to thrive on the biggest stage if handed the opportunity. Chelsea have never been known to rely on players from their academy but had no choice but to do so in the 2019/20 football season as the likes of Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Reece James, and Mason Mount took up important roles in the team. Mason Mount was one player who never got the credit he deserved in his first season as a regular first-team player at Stamford Bridge. Many pundits and fans believed that he was ...

Blues and Foxes deprived each other on separate fronts

The FA Cup final at Wembley was one game that Chelsea went into as favorites but ended up losing as Leicester City were up for it, with the London outfit not being able to breach their backline successfully. A screamer by Youri Tielemans was enough to settle the matter on the day as the Foxes won another major silverware after their Premier League triumph some seasons back. It can also be recalled that ahead of the FA Cup final, there was also little concern about who would finish in the top four as both sides who thought they were home and dry allowed Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool back into the race for a place in the top four with their inconsistencies. The two sides were to face each other in another season-defining game in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. THE BEST SITES FO...

Time for Tuchel to feel the pressure at Chelsea as fans return to earth

The events of the past week have shown that there are no guarantees in football. They have also shown that a manager is only the fans' favorite when he has the results to show in his favor. This is the present story of Chelsea as they prepare for their last two Premier League games of the season as well as the UEFA Champions League final against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in Portugal. The Blues were coming off the back of wins against Real Madrid and Manchester City and suddenly, their fans saw them as favorites for every tie. Well, the past week has also shown how the tide can turn, and how football fans can be brought back to earth. If Thomas Tuchel hasn't felt pressure in his entire managerial career, I can bet that he will feel major pressure as Chelsea's boss. The Blues ...

West Ham vs Chelsea – A potential banana peel for the Blues?

The race for the top 4 is the rave of the moment in the Premier League as Manchester City are very close to title triumph. Therefore, we'll see one of the fiercest London derbies this Saturday when Chelsea travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham. This should be one of the biggest games ever between the two sides as they are fighting for a place in the top four to seal qualification to next season's UEFA Champions League. They are both tied on 55 points respectively as Chelsea sit 4th while the Hammers sit 5th. Therefore, this game has what it takes to be a cracker and one of the best games of the weekend. The Hammers have been very impressive on their home turf and the Blues have a game on their hands. West Ham last lost at home to Liverpool in January 2021 and before the...

The development of Mason Mount shows the benefits of a successful loan spell

Mason Mount has scored the first league goal of Frank Lampard's reign as both Derby County and Chelsea manager. The chosen one. pic.twitter.com/MF37epX6iA — Squawka Football (@Squawka) August 18, 2019 A loan move from the Premier League to the Football League can often be hugely beneficial in helping a player’s development. The opportunity to play every week and gain confidence is often seen as far better than playing in under-23 and under-18 matches. Mason Mount played a huge part in Derby County’s run to the Championship play-off final in 2019. The young English attacking midfielder impressed everyone including his parent club, Chelsea.

5:2 defeat could be a one off, as Mount impresses against Porto

Chelsea put the 5:2 bashing by West Brom in the Premier League behind them as they ran out 2 nil winners against FC Porto in the first leg of their UCL quarterfinal encounter at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Seville. The Blues were heavy favorites for a win after the draws were made but doubts came up after the defeat to West Brom. However, the Blues went into the game with the intent of clearing those doubts and did it, thanks to goals by Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell. They'll now go into the second leg which puts them technically at home at the same venue with a 2 goal lead. Day 2 of the quarterfinal fixtures was the day for the away sides to shine as Paris Saint-Germain also beat Bayern Munich 3:2 at the Allianz Arena.
