Has Chukwueze got better from last season?
Whilst it is safe to say that Chukwueze hasn’t built exponentially on his blistering form of last season,he career continues to show steady (if not rapid) growth. Yesterday in the Copa Del Ray against Orihuela, his contributions earned a rating of 7.1/10.
The Under 17 World Cup winner had a pass accuracy of 81%. He made 3 key passes, 2 crosses and 3 accurate long balls for the 88 minutes that he spent on the pitch. Although he neither scored nor recorded an assist, the young speed demon had 1 shot off target and 1 blocked. Throughout last season in the league, Chukwueze’s performances earned a rating of 6.76/10. He is already doing better this term with a rating of 6.71/10 thus far. He scored 5 league goals last season with 3 thus far this term. Chukwueze’s improvement might be slow and steady, but he is improving nonetheless and can take comfort from his contributions last night. Rumours linking him to several high profile clubs are also testament to the fact that many observers continue to see the Nigeria international as a young, vibrant, bright prospect.
