5 Schalke Players Who Can Damage Chelsea Tonight

Chelsea travel to Bundesliga side Schalke this evening in the Champions League, so here are five players who could hurt the Blues.

1) Julian Draxler

The young playmaker has been plastered all over our screens of late as he continues to be linked with a move to the Premier League, and he is sure to be the focal point of discussion after this evening’s game.

The 20-years old has scored in both of Schalke’s Champions League games this season and claimed an assist, and is generally the creative hub that keeps the Bundesliga side ticking.

2) Jefferson Farfan

The 28-year-old wide man has created 11 chances in the German topflight this season and has scored once. He has completed 18/27 of his take ons and will be a constant thorn in the side of the full backs.

3) Adam Szalai

The summer signing has scored four goals in nine games for his new season  and has looked lively in the absence of Jan Klass Huntelaar. John Terry will have to have his wits about him if he is to contain the forward.

4) Kevin Prince-Boateng

A man who Premier League fans will remember from his time at Portsmouth back when they were in the topflight. He has scored three and created five chances this season in the Bundesliga.

5) Marco Hoger

The 24-year-old has been one of the club’s most impressive performers this season and has completed 88% of his passes. He has completed 12/13 of his tackles and won 12/15 of his take ons.
