Bellingham put on a show for the German outfit in the UEFA Champions League once again on Tuesday (October 11). The Englishman was one of the best players on the pitch and scored Dortmund’s only goal in their 1-1 draw with Sevilla at Signal Iduna Park.
After the game, Bellingham, who won UEFA’s Player of the Match award, posted a photo on Instagram with the caption:
The right-back was notably in action at the same time as Bellingham, turning out for the Blues away to AC Milan. James started the contest and impressed once again before being replaced in the 62nd minute after picking up an injury.
Another Chelsea player, Carney Chukwuemeka, also commented on Bellingham’s post, terming him to be ‘so so good.’
Their comments were certainly justified as the former Birmingham City midfielder performed admirably against Sevilla. Apart from finding the back of the net, he completed 82% of his passes, laid out a key pass and won two fouls.
Bellingham also recorded three successful tackles and an interception, while winning six duels.
Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with Jude Bellingham:
Both Chelsea and Liverpool have faced issues in midfield this season.
While the Blues have recovered some of their mojo under Graham Potter, they may still look to bolster their resources next summer. N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will be out of contract next summer. Their ownership, led by Todd Boehly, have also not shied away from going after statement signings.
