Rudiger shines with Chelsea
If someone said that Antonio Rudiger is the best center-back in the Premier League right now based on his form, there probably isn’t much argument against such a claim.
Before Thomas Tuchel took over at Chelsea in late January, Rudiger’s future at Stamford Bridge seemed to be on the ropes.
However, since Tuchel’s arrival, he has shown faith in his compatriot and, thus far, has been highly rewarded.
Chelsea finished 2020/21 with the 2North Dakota best defense in the Premier League despite being quite poor during the first half of the campaign.
This was followed by Chelsea winning the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup. And today it is pensioners who top the Premier League table.
And while several stars have excelled with Tuchel, none, especially as a central defender, have been as impressive as Rudiger.
Rudiger’s back problem
As a result, losing the 28-year-old for any length of time would be a huge blow to the Blues, who are undoubtedly seeking their first Premier League title with Tuchel this season.
Rudiger would start for Germany on Friday when Julian Nagelsmann’s team won 2-1 over Romania.
Die Mannschaft is set to play its second and final World Cup qualifying match of the break on Monday against North Macedonia.
However, before the game, Rudiger seems to have spotted a problem.
According to Bild, Rudiger was absent from Germany’s last training session on Saturday, and the Chelsea star stayed at the team hotel with what was described as back problems.
Bild added that Rudiger’s possible involvement against North Macedonia will not be decided until Monday.
