Chelsea fans eagerly await the return of their star player, thrilled by his impressive abilities
During the international breaks, websites still want to keep attention on the club game, so one clever content idea that WhoScored have thought up is getting people to suggest players, which they will respond to with their “characteristics”, both strong and weak, according to the stats they record on their site.
These aren’t foolproof – lots of players don’t excel statistically in the ways that this particular algorithm picks up, but some do.
One in the latter camp, without doubt, is Christopher Nkunku. Just look at his list of strengths from the site:
– Through balls
– Key passes
– Long shots
– Direct free-kicks
– Holding on to the ball
He has “no significant weaknesses,” to boot.
All those things sound so positive, especially for a Chelsea team who have lacked goals both from short and long range of late.
You can see why those thirsty Chelsea fans requested his numbers – as his return grows closer, we’re all getting excited to see him back in action and showing us that these are more than just analytics.
