Andreas Christensen is one of the first-team players that has come through the academy ranks at Chelsea and everyone is desperate for him to succeed at Stamford Bridge.

After two brilliant years out on loan with Borussia Monchengladbach, the defender enjoyed a positive 2017/18 campaign in the Blues senior squad.

He racked up 40 appearances across all competitions in that season and showed a lot to suggest he was ready for the top level, while some felt he was the man to succeed the great John Terry.

But the 2018/19 season hasn’t quite gone to plan for him.

With just one game left this season, the 23-year-old hasn’t kicked on as expected and struggled to cement his spot under manager Maurizio Sarri.

Christensen has played just 28 times this season, but will hope to feature in the Europa League final against Arsenal later in May.

There is no doubting he is a talented defender that could still go on to have an immense future, but he needs to cut out the individual errors that have crept into his game.

The Denmark international hasn’t been helped by slotting in and out of the team, with the majority of his games coming in the Europa League.

He’s played only eight times in the Premier League, yet he hasn’t quite looked some demanding in the Europa League against some lesser opposition.

Christensen needs to try get back to basics over the pre-season and return with a fresh mind next season, where he has to aim to dislodge the ageing David Luiz.
