  • Mykahilo Mudryk reportedly contends his Chelsea teammates have a hand in his struggles
  • The Ukrainian star has struggled to make an impression since he joined the Blues in January 2023
  • Mudryk has scored just two Premier League goals since his arrival at Stamford Bridge

Mykhailo Mudryk reportedly believes his Chelsea teammates have contributed to his struggles at Stamford Bridge.

The Ukrainian has endured a frustrating spell with the Blues since he joined them from Shakhtar Donetsk during the 2023 January transfer window.

Mudryk was initially expected to join Arsenal before the west Londoners snapped him up for an eyewatering £88 million.

However, the youngster has failed to justify the huge fee paid for his services, with the winger struggling for form and consistency.

According to Sportbible, Mudryk has scored just two Premier League goals since his move to England, with his last coming back in October against Arsenal.

While many contend Mudryk's struggles are largely down to him, the winger believes his own teammates have a hand in his dip in form.

This is per the forward's close friend Georgiy Sudakov, who disclosed the contents of a conversation in which Mudryk claimed that his teammates are the problem.

"Misha has got huge potential," he said in an interview with The Telegraph earlier this month.

"Perhaps one of the reasons why you don't see him at the top level in England yet is because, he is saying, there is not such a player like [me] who constantly delivers top passes and assists for him," he added.
