Former Aston Villa striker turned talkSPORT pundit, Gabriel Agbonlahor, has not held back in his assessment of Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk. In a recent segment on talkSPORT, Agbonlahor voiced his concerns about the 23-year-old Ukrainian winger’s performance.
He claimed that Mudryk has failed to utilize his pace effectively and lacks control when in possession of the ball. Agbonlahor’s critique of Mudryk’s playing style is direct and unsparing. He likened Mudryk’s tendency to run into opponents to that of Chelsea’s Timo Werner, implying a lack of composure and awareness on the pitch.
Agbonlahor contrasted Mudryk’s approach with Gabriel Martinelli, praising the Brazilian winger’s ability to use his pace to trouble defenders effectively. The talkSPORT pundit also touched upon Mudryk’s rumored interest from Arsenal before his move to Chelsea. He said that Arsenal fans may be relieved by Mudryk’s current form.
Is Mudryk a flop singing for Chelsea?
Agbonlahor implied that Mudryk’s struggles at Chelsea validate Arsenal’s decision not to pursue for him. Furthermore, highlighting a perceived gap in quality between Mudryk and Martinelli. Mudryk’s performance at Chelsea has been under scrutiny, with Agbonlahor noting that the winger has failed to make a significant impact despite being given opportunities.
While Mudryk has made appearances in Premier League and EFL Cup, his output in terms of G/A has been modest. Surely raising questions about his effectiveness in the top flight.
The Ukrainian international’s statistics for the current season indeed reflect his struggles, with just three goals and two assists in the Premier League.
Mudryk’s inability to consistently contribute to Chelsea’s attacking play has left fans and pundits alike questioning whether he has what it takes to succeed at the highest level. As Mudryk continues to adapt to the demands of English football, it remains to be seen whether he can overcome the criticisms leveled against him.
With the spotlight on his performances, the pressure is on Mudryk to prove his doubters wrong and fulfill his potential. Time will tell whether he can rise to the challenge and establish himself as a key player for the Blues.
