Rudiger showing promise?
A big week for Chelsea begins with a trip to Rome, where Antonio Rudiger will come up against a few familiar faces. The 24-yearold arrived at Stamford Bridge from Roma for £34m over the summer and is looking forward to an early reunion in Italy.
“It always happens like this,” he said. Rudiger said he had “two wonderful years” with the club in Serie A and the early signs are positive at Chelsea too, with the German solid and stubborn in the three-man defence at Bournemouth on Saturday. “At the moment, I am in good shape and this is where I want to stay and get better.”
