Chelsea is not living the most usual season in its recent history. Accustomed to large investments in the last decades since the arrival of Roman Abramovich, the FIFA sanction meant that they could not sign last summer, thus reconverting the reinforcement project and, in turn, readjusting all the movements.Everything happened to be measured with another nuance. Everything happened to be analyzed from another point of view since any departure in the squad could not be replaced with a player outside the club. Finally, the punishment was less, since the TAS redirected its path, modified the sanction and minimized the established period of restriction without being able to sign. Everything remained in just one window of the market without reinforcements, thus opening the possibility that now in January they can have free access to be able to obtain new players from other teams if necessary.Starting from an unusual, almost unexpected context, there has also been a surprising situation. Analyzing the day to day of the club, studying the sports dynamics of Chelsea, soon names such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Willian or Pulisic are positioned on the table, all led by Frank Lampard.However, the latest Transfermarkt market update reflects a curious economic situation that contrasts the Stamford Bridge team with respect to its rivals, both in British and European island territory. Are your most media players the most valuable in the market?CHELSEA’S MOST EXPENSIVE FOOTBALL PLAYERSN’Golo Kanté, 100 million euros.Jorginho, 65 million euros.Kepa Arrizabalaga, 60 million euros.Christian Pulisic, 60 million euros.Antonio Rüdiger, 50 million euros. The three players with the highest market value in Chelsea are not offensive players, and within the TOP 5 of this most expensive ranking, it is striking that four of the names that appear little, or nothing, have to do purely with the goal. A significant fact that cancels the assimilated current that the most expensive of football stands in the figures of the great scorers, of the players who define the matches with their scoring sense of smell.The TOP 3 of players presents Kanté and Jorginho (key pieces of the midfield with more defensive than offensive tones) and Kepa (the goalkeeper of the team) as the highest values of the costumes. A curious situation that reflects the reality of the London season. The difference with respect to the rest of the English Big Six teams, in addition, further accentuates this scenario that, for the moment, keeps Lampard in the battle for European positions in the Premier League and I live in the Champions League.LOWEST FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF LIVERPOOLMohamed Salah, 150 million euros.Sadio Mané, 150 million euros.Trent Alexander-Arnold, 110 million euros.Virgil van Dijk, 100 million euros.Alisson, 90 million euros. MANCHESTER CITY FOOTBALL PLAYERSRaheem Sterling, 160 million euros.Kevin De Bruyne, 150 million euros.Leroy Sané, 100 million euros.Bernardo Silva, 100 million euros.Rodrigo, 80 million euros. MANCHESTER UNITED FOOTBALL PLAYERSPaul Pogba, 100 million euros.Marcus Rashford, 80 million euros.Harry Maguire, 70 million euros.David De Gea, 60 million euros.Anthony Martial, 60 million euros. Except, the case of Liverpool (which has some similarity with the Blues, but bases its two most expensive players in the lead), the great stars of English football have a close relationship with the goal. It is not the case of Chelsea. If at first glance names like Salah, Mané, Sterling, De Bruyne, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Kane, Eriksen, Pogba or Rashford (all of them offensive, with important scoring figures every year), in Chelsea names like Kanté, Jorginho or Kepa come out. Almost somewhat antagonistic. Almost an antithesis.A curious difference that reflects the strength of the team, the great value of this Chelsea who has lived different sections this season. After a summer of doubts, several stumbling blocks in the first few weeks, set off an alarm that went off with the arrival of the wind in favor. After a couple of positive months in English and European territory now, on the contrary, they again have tension as they have seen their distance to their persecutors reduced.
Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Good competition. Both men have been practicing very well the last couple of days,” Holcomb said. “It’s an ongoing process, it’s a constant rotation.”Benwikere played 34 snaps on defense to Taylor’s 55 Sunday in a 16-14 loss to Chicago, though many of those were in the interior as a fifth or sixth defensive back.It’s possible he could continue to earn more snaps in that role if Taylor continues seeing most of the snaps at corner.EXTRA POINT— Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, on the mobility and arm strength that Rosen brings to the table: “You do so many drills during the day or during the week of, you’re not just sitting back there dropping, sitting in the pocket. You got to be able to move, you got to know when you can step up, when you can flush, what are the certain looks, where are the hot answers when things break down. I think as we’ve all seen in the short amount of time he’s been with us that he can throw on the run and get out of certain things and make some plays with his feet.” He remembers the early days, when the first thing he’d do upon hearing a play-call was double-check where he was supposed to line up or where a hole might open up.“I was so worried about, alright, don’t forget that. This is your move. This is what you got,” he said.“Now I hear a play, I already know what I got, I’m already looking at the defense. I’m all about the defense now. It’s slowed it down for me tremendously.”Cornerback competition on the radarNew coaching staff, new year, same microscope on the Cardinals’ cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson.Jamar Taylor, who was acquired from the Cleveland Browns in a trade this offseason, began the year as Arizona’s starter. But on Sunday, he was lifted in the fourth quarter for Wilks-taught defensive back Bene Benwikere.Benwikere played for Wilks from 2014-16 after he was the Carolina Panthers’ fifth-round pick in 2014. He’s since bounced around, playing for the Dallas Cowboys last season.Wilks said Sunday that inserting Benwikere at corner was about searching for a spark and this week reiterated the competition is open. Defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said the call is Wilks’ to make, but did say Thursday that a competition is taking place.

I was always taught in college: prepare for the worst and react to the easy.“I look at a full play that I’m trying to study and let it go — so I try not to think about it. And then I rewind it. And then I’ll try to break it down, step-by-step, what I have to do, what my job is, where my eyes and O-line are on that look.”Edmonds said he’s grown immensely in how fast he’s able to process information, even comparing earlier parts of training camp with Week 1 of the regular season. 4 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. — Typical NFL quarterback he is, Josh Rosen is supposed to be the most confident. As a rookie now tasked with leading the Arizona Cardinals, he is not supposed to show weakness.“Fake it ’til you make it,” he’s said since being drafted No. 10 overall.Subtly, he broke that rule about carrying all the confidence in the world by complimenting rookie running back Chase Edmonds.“I think he’s smarter than all of us,” Rosen said Wednesday, speaking of his fellow Cardinals rookies. “He’s the one fixing a lot of protections.”
