Reports have claimed that senior players at Chelsea have been advising Mykhailo Mudryk to calm down when playing for the club.

According to The Athletic, those who have been speaking to him believe he is trying too hard to get things to happen, rather than trusting his ability in big moments,

It is not difficult to believe that Mudryk would be bordering on trying too hard to get something to happen after what has been an underwhelming start to life at Stamford Bridge.

He is yet to find the net for his new club in a competitive game, and this has now been coupled with a real lack of minutes in recent months.

The majority of his appearances recently have been off the bench, with them often coming up against sides defending deep to hold on to their result.

Mudryk told to calm things down

This is obviously not how the pacey, direct winger is looking to play, or what will get the best out of him in this league.

However, starts are hard to come by at the minute, and it can be seen by everyone that he is struggling to get to grips with what has awaited him in the Premier League.

This has obviously been cause for concern for his teammates, who are safe in the knowledge that there is a reason why the club spent the money they did on the youngster.

It has now been claimed that he has frequently been told that he is rushing things in the final third, a sign of someone not trusting their own ability.

Mudryk will be hoping that he sees his amount of starts increase soon, with him surely hoping that manager Mauricio Pochettino opts for a slightly new system after the international break comes to an end.
