Chelsea have five players nominated for the 2021 Ballon d’Or. The players are Mason Mount, Giorgione, Anne Golo Kante, Romelu Lukaku and Cesar Azpelicueta.

Georginho helped Chelsea win their second Champions League title before playing a key role in guiding Italy to the Euro 2020 title against England.

Jorginho could break the duck for Chelsea but he faces stiff competition for the 2021 Ballon d’Or. Argentine and PSG forward Lionel Messi is still considered the most favorite for this year’s award, while Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski is also in the mix.
