Edouard Mendy form continues but Billy Gilmour development is stunted

With the domestic season taking a back seat for the next fortnight as we wade through the latest World Cup qualifiers, it can be difficult to keep track of Chelsea players as they embark all over the globe.

That’s where we come in. We’ll bring you everything that is worth knowing and bring you all the news from every corner of the planet that concerns your favourite boys in blue.

Andreas Christensen (Denmark)

Facing Scotland, Denmark swept the side away with two goals within fifteen minutes. A clean sheet for the defender who was praised after keeping his cool in the draw against Liverpool away, with ten players for the Blues.

Billy Gilmour (Scotland)

Gilmour came close to getting at the end of the best chance for Scotland who lost the game two-nil, in their group World Cup qualifying game.

The 20-year-old who is on loan at Norwich City is said to have struggled in the first half. Pat Nevin speaking on BBC 5Live said: “In the first half, the team wasn’t playing particularly well at all, and he wasn’t playing in the position that suits him.

“Breaking forward from midfield is not Billy’s game. Billy’s game is controlling from a deeper area. Yes, he will break forward sometimes, but when he dropped back in that area we got more control of the game.”

Kovacic featured in a stalemate between Croatia and Russia, where he tried to squeeze in a shot from a right angle, into added time – a good opportunity for the player.

Croatia sits top of their qualifying group with seven points won from four games.

Edouard Mendy (Senegal)

Mendy’s clean sheet form continues to be in good shape, both for club and national sides. A comfortable 2-0 win over Togo at home.

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane scored the first after Abdou Diallo wrapped up the victory with a second goal.
