Chelsea fans' player of the season according to Sky Sports poll

According to a fan poll, Mateo Kovacic has been the club’s best performer so far, ahead of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.

Sky Sports created poll to determine each Premier League club’s player of the season from the fans perspective, including Chelsea.

Interestingly, the Chelsea poll did not include some names like Kovacic and Marcos Alonso among the nominees.

The list of the nominees was Tammy Abraham, Cesar Azpilicueta, Reece James, Jorginho, Mason Mount, Willian and “someone else”.

The “someone else” option won the poll with 31% out of 4145 votes.

In the comments, the fans almost entirely agree on one name, Mateo Kovacic. Some even argued the Croatian midfielder has been a cut above the rest of the team this season.

The 25-year-old has made 25 league appearances this season and his ability to glide past opponents has been crucial in Chelsea’s attacks.

One criticism for Kovacic would be his final product, as he has only netted twice and provided three assists in all competitions this term.

Tammy who has been Chelsea’s most prolific player scoring 15 goals in all competitions was ranked second with  22% of the total votes.

Mount has the third-highest vote (16%) as he has been one of the first names in Frank Lampard’s team-sheet, making appearances in all Chelsea’s league fixtures and started in 25 out of those 29 games.
