Important Chelsea man ruled out for month as Blues star labelled under-performer

An important Chelsea defender has been ruled out of action for at least one month, which means he will likely miss the League Cup Final against Liverpool. In addition to that topic, The Pride of London talk about a particular Blues star who is now labelled as severely underperforming in spite of a hefty price tag.

Unfortunately, the west London side won't be able to call upon Benoit Badiashile for a little while. Badiashile was withdrawn during the Villa match, and scans have revealed a groin injury. The Frenchman now 'faces a prolonged spell on the sidelines', suggests Nizaar Kinsella, a reporter at Evening Standard.

Talented Chelsea player Enzo Fernandez the 11th biggest under-performer in Premier League despite sensational goal which amazed fans against Aston Villa in FA Cup recently

Fernandez will come good at Stamford Bridge. I am almost sure of that eventuality. But the Argentine World Cup winner's potential in the English top-flight is higher than most so we may wait for him to realise it. Glimpses of his world-class midfield calibre were few, yet they are now more frequent. As previously noted, the free-kick verses the Villans was magical and rounds off an almost complete game.

Fernandez must show consistency, facilitate further if fielded higher on the pitch and score on more occasions. Though battles with the proficient and potent midfields of the top eight EPL sides are where he will ultimately be judged as a prospective great of the greatest division. A few better, more competent and confident teammates would assist that venture.

At present, however, Fernandez is arguably failing to achieve the level which he should, irrespective of colleagues playing well or otherwise. Read the below section to learn more:

Next comes Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez, who may have scored a sensational free-kick in midweek, but is shown to be 96 points worse off than his form of the last two years - not great returns from a £107m investment."
