Fan reactions at half-time as Mykhailo Mudryk has yet to truly impress at Chelsea

The 21-year-old Ukrainian starlet once again featured in Graham Potter’s matchday XI, and though he showed his electric pace, has yet to truly influence matters since his arrival from Shakhtar Donetsk

Chelsea’s push for more honors on the continent resumed tonight in the Ruhr valley against German giants Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park, and if the first 45-minutes are anything to go by, many Blues supporters will be encouraged by evidence on the pitch provided by Graham Potter’s men as both sides went into the changing room locked in a 0-0 affair.

Despite Dortmund boasting the lion’s share of possession and more generated shots, Chelsea has managed to craft a higher xG and bigger chances on the night, particularly through Portuguese star João Félix, who has been at the center of it all for Potter’s troops across an impressive first-half outing.

But one player that has struggled to really show early influence in his young Chelsea career has been Ukrainian starlet Mykhailo Mudryk. Though his pace and athleticism have been evident as it so often is, the 21-year-old sparkplug has yet to settle under Potter and still looks off the boil on a tactical front, despite Ben Chilwell coming into the team tonight over Marc Cucurella.

How have Chelsea supporters reacted to his display thus far amid questions surrounding whether or not Potter is getting the best out of the Ukrainian international? See for yourself below.
