Comparing Lucas Digne’s 21-22 stats to Chelsea’s current wingbacks

5

Chelsea have been dealt a double blow, with Ben Chilwell set to miss the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury, whilst Reece James looks set to be out for a number of weeks after picking up an injury against Brighton.

Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have been reliant on their two wingbacks for creativity, and losing both at the same time threatens to derail their season.

Reinforcements could be added in January, and one name that has been heavily linked is Lucas Digne. The France international has reportedly fallen out with Rafa Benitez at Everton, and with the Toffees set to sign Vitaliy Mykolenko in the window, Digne could be available to move to West London.

Digne has plenty of experience at the top level, having previously played for Lille, PSG, Roma and Barcelona before joining Everton in 2018.

We’ve compared his stats from this season to Chelsea’s current wingbacks, to see if he could provide adequate cover in such an important area of the pitch.
