Chelsea have been making the most of Kurt Zouma’s aerial prowess this season, with the Frenchman currently the Blues’ Premier League top scorer.
While players like Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud have enjoyed being on the scoreboard in cup competitions so far this season, Zouma has had the responsibility of finding the back of the net in league matches.
It is also an unlikely source. His fourth goal of the season against Leeds United at the weekend meant he had already recorded his best return goal from center, but it’s easy to see why he has so many chances.
Take a look at this clip below, during which you will see the decoy runs performed by Chelsea players in the area to clear the way for Zouma, who is the target of almost every shoot into the penalty area.
Mason Mount’s corner delivery was for the money against Leeds, hence Zouma scored once again. If the balls continue to reach the correct area and his teammates continue to do their bit, there will be many more goals to score for him this season.
