In what has been a dismal campaign for Chelsea, the London club’s woes reached new depths with a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Arsenal this week, underscoring their abysmal form this season.

Throughout the term, several Chelsea players have failed to meet expectations, but none more so than Mykhaylo Mudryk. The Ukrainian winger, who arrived at Stamford Bridge 18 months ago in a blockbuster £88 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk, has failed to live up to his hefty price tag.

Mudryk’s underwhelming performances have sparked debate, particularly given his near-move to Arsenal in the January transfer window prior to joining Chelsea. Scott Minto, speaking on the Premier League All Access Podcast, suggested that Mudryk might have thrived had he chosen the Gunners instead.

“If Mykhaylo Mudryk had joined Arsenal, he’d have been going into great conditions, a great environment, and maybe he’d be doing the same sorts of numbers Trossard is,” remarked Minto.


The speculation surrounding Mudryk’s potential success at Arsenal raises questions about Chelsea’s setup and management. While it’s debatable whether Mudryk could have justified his hefty price tag at Arsenal, it’s clear that his current struggles at Chelsea are emblematic of broader issues within the squad.

Under the current circumstances, Chelsea’s environment seems far from conducive to success for any player, with few exceptions like Cole Palmer. In contrast, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has demonstrated an ability to extract the best from his players, even those who are initially overlooked.

While players like Kai Havertz who struggled at Stamford Bridge, have flourished since swapping West London for Arsenal in the summer. Mudryk’s disappointing tenure at Chelsea prompts reflection on what might have been had he chosen a different path. With his career trajectory now in question, it’s evident that the decision to join Chelsea may not have been the best move for the Ukrainian winger.
