The news that Chelsea are planning to sell Callum Hudson-Odoi and buy Anthony Gordon has a lot of Blues confused.
A comparison of their respective stats reveals why CHO has played more games, but racked up more assists along the way. They have the same number of goals. Gordon probably has the edge in terms of goal contributions per minute, but not hugely, and certainly not £60m hugely.
It feels like 90% of Chelsea fans are aligned on this – it’s totally mad to sell one for almost nothing only to then buy the other for major cash.
What exactly are we doing here?
