Charly Musonda must be given a chance at Chelsea

Falcao has failed, Loic Remy has flopped, and Eden Hazard has been virtually invisible all season. All have played a part in perhaps the worst title defence in Premier League history.

Meanwhile, Charly Musonda has spent the second half of the season on loan at Spanish side, Real Betis where he has been a revelation. It must surely be time for him to be given a chance in the Chelsea first team.

It has become normal practice for Chelsea to send dozens of players out on loan to prove themselves at other clubs, however many end up never appearing for the club. But the recent emergence of Bertrand Traore will have given others the hope that they can make an impression at Stamford Bridge after a spell away on loan.

Musonda joined the Blues in 2012 from Anderlecht, amid reported interest from the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Given the calibre of teams that wanted to sign him, he would have expected to be a part of the Chelsea first team set up by now.

Big changes are expected to be made at Stamford Bridge in the summer after a difficult season has seen them drop to tenth in the Premier League, and go out of the Champions League and FA Cup to PSG and Everton respectively. There have been calls for Chelsea to give youth players more of an opportunity, especially given how poorly some of the more senior players have performed this season.

Musonda has been impressive on both wings since his move to Real Betis, playing 90 minutes in all of his eight games. No one else in La Liga has attempted more dribbles on average per game than the 19-year-old’s 8.1 this season, and only Neymar has matched his 4.4 successful dribbles on average per game.

A lot will be said this summer about what Chelsea need to do to restore their place as one of the title challengers in the Premier League, and they may be tempted to go big in the transfer market. However, the Blues may only need to look from within to find players who can improve their squad.
