Chelsea players need to give their best if they want to stay in the league race

In the current campaign, Chelsea has heavily depended on Nicolas Jackson, Raheem Sterling, and Cole Palmer for goals. Jackson leads the team as the top scorer in the Premier League with six goals, followed by Sterling in second place with five, and Palmer in third with four.

Had you informed Chelsea fans before the Brighton game that none of the usual goal-scorers like Jackson, Sterling, or Palmer would find the net, they might have anticipated a potential loss. Fortunately, Fernandez and Colwill stepped up to the occasion, ensuring the Blues secured a much-needed victory.

Expectations for Colwill to score frequently may not be high given his defensive role. However, there is a desire to see more attacking productivity from Fernandez, a quality midfield player. Former Chelsea defender Scott Minto shares the sentiment. Thus, expressing the hope that the World Cup winner can contribute more. Ultimately, increasing goal-scoring contributions may be the key for Fernandez to elevate his impact at Stamford Bridge.
