Loan Report: How Are Chelsea Stars Faring So Far This Season?

With the sheer number of players that Chelsea have out on loan, it’s not easy to keep track of how well they are all doing away from Stamford Bridge.

I have chosen to focus on eight loanees who have been performing for their clubs:

Christian Pulisic

The £58m January signing did not get off the bench in Borussia Dortmund’s last league game, in the 3-3 draw against Hoffenheim.

However, the American international showed what he was all about in the German Cup last week. He scored an excellent goal in the defeat to Werder Bremen.

Tammy Abraham

The striker has excelled during his time at Aston Villa. He is currently joint second on the Championship goalscoring charts with 20 goals.

Since moving to Villa Park on a season-long loan in the summer, the 21-year-old has been a mainstay of the Midlands club’s first team.


After performing very well during his first stint on loan at Newcastle last season, the Brazilian has so far struggled to recapture that form this campaign.

The wingback has made 23 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies, scoring one goal, but he last started a league game in the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool back in December.

Mason Mount

The promising midfielder started the campaign in excellent form but he has been less prominent over the past few months.

Playing under Frank Lampard at Derby County should, though, help his development before he returns to the club in the summer.

Charly Musonda

The Belgian winger was touted as one of the most exciting young prospects at the club, but he disappointed during a loan spell at Celtic last campaign.

Unfortunately, things are not going too much better during his time in Holland with Vitesse Arnhem. He is yet to play following a knee injury but could feature again before the end of this month.

Jake Clarke-Salter

One player who has featured prominently at Vitesse is Clarke-Salter. The defender has missed just three league games this season.

The centre-back has been a key player as the Dutch club have risen to fifth in the Eredivisie table, having conceded 29 in 21 games.

Kurt Zouma

The Frenchman has been a regular for Everton during his season-long loan spell on Merseyside. He has started 20 of the Toffees’ 27 league matches.

The lack of a regular centre-back partner has meant he has struggled for consistency, with Everton having conceded 39 times already this campaign.

Fikayo Tomori

The 21-year-old has been given lots of game time by Frank Lampard at Derby, alongside Mason Mount. Playing in his favoured position at centre-half, he has featured regularly in the club’s promotion chase.

His 28 appearances in the Championship so far will no doubt give him valuable experience going forward.
