It can be hard to integrate one’s self into an outfit battling for the Premier League title. It has been this very scenario Juan Cuadrado has found himself in since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina in January.
Thus far, the Colombian international hasn’t blown anyone away, so much so that he has even been lamented by a section of Blues fans who in recent years have been used to the very best talents plying their trade at Stamford Bridge.
Cuadrado has been part of Chelsea’s matchday squad on nine occasions thus far, starting at home to Burnley and appearing from the bench three times against Everton, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham.
An unused substitute on all of the other occasions, although competition for places is stiff under Jose Mourinho, this suggests he hasn’t done enough to dislodge the tireless Willian from the side.
Although it would be foolish to write Cuadrado off so early in his Blues career, as Mohamed Salah has found, the Blues always seem to have a surplus of speedy wingers, some of which haven’t covered themselves in glory, thus finding themselves being shown the exit door before too long.
Here are five Chelsea wing men that Cuadrado won’t be looking to emulate anytime soon.
