I would set the over/under on EPL appearances at 2.5 and I'd take the under. He's likely in the CCV boat where he's too good for reserves but not good enough for them yet.


2.5 why so high? With Hazard getting fit and presumably a few more signings on the way the over under should be closer to 1...and I would say 0 EPL appearances. In fact I will say he may have made his last EPL bench of the season. If he doesn't end up on loan I can see him maybe getting a few minutes in a cup game.

And I don't think he is too good for the reserves...making the bench has more to do with him being the most ready at a position of need.

I thought it was high too but i could see an 89' minute appearance to milk clock here or there

Looking at Chelsea's fixtures, if Scott does not go out on loan it is quite conceivable he will get actual first team minutes in the middle of September.

September 12th they play at home against Qarabag in the CL
September 17th they play at home to Arsenal
September 20th they play Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup

With the fixtures on top of each other he could see minutes against Forest in the Carabao cup.

He may also get CL minutes as Chelsea travel to Azerbaijan November 22nd and then play three days later on November 25th away to Liverpool. The CL match is long travel so they may send reserves and keep the starting XI at home to train for Liverpool.

It being so late in the window with all seasons having started, I think it would be best if he stayed at Chelsea until January.

Kyle Scott is on the Chelsea Champions League roster for the group stages...primarily because he counts as a home grown player. His best chance of playing will be away in Azerbaijan.
