A source of goals:
Andre Schurrle, naturally a winger, has a fairly good scoring rate. While in Bayer, he scored 18 league goals from a total of 65 appearances, which is great considering he is not an out-and out striker. During his first season at Chelsea last year, he was not a regular name on the starting line-up. He was often left on the bench while Hazard, Oscar and Willian or Mata played behind the striker. Quite a few of his appearances were as a sub while he rarely completed the full 90 minutes. Yet he gave Chelsea a good return of eight goals in the first season in 30 appearances, which included a double against Stoke City and a hattrick against Fulham.
During Arsenal’s visit to Chelsea last season, Schurrle made a goal, scored a goal and gave an incredible performance, with the match eventually finishing 6-0. He was awarded the Man of the Match. At the World Cup in Brazil, Schurrle scored three goals, all after coming on from the bench. This season, on the opening day, he finished off one the best team goals scored till now, converting Fabregas’s perfectly judged pass with his first touch. It looks like he has brought in his world cup form to Stamford Bridge and will be in fine scoring form this season.
