Ukrainian footballer, Mhykailo Mudryk had a night of football that he would want to forget in a hurry as Chelsea continued in their usual uninspiring fashion.
Mudryk made his first Premier League debut and he was a shadow of his former self.
His brilliant cameo appearance against Liverpool, now looks like a performance that was flattering as he was practically non-existent against Fulham last night.
Mhykailo Mudryk contract details
The 22 year old Ukrainian left winger put pen to paper with the blues on an eight-and–half-year deal joining the West London based club from Russian side, Shaktar Donetesk.
The man who was signed by Chelsea for a fee reportedly around £88.5m ghosted his way all through the first half of the game against Fulham.
Mhykailo Mudryk, who is also the most expensive forward in Chelsea’s history was largely below par as the blues once again couldn’t get a victory in the encounter.
Chelsea went in hard for Mudryk and quickly signed him after he was rumored to be on the verge of joining city rivals, Arsenal.
The stylish and tricky player, Mudryk couldn’t bring to the football pitch his bundle of skills for the total duration of 45 minutes before he was substituted.
Statically, Mhykailo Mudryk was woeful in the game against the Cottagers as he didn’t do anything worth pinpointing.

What Chelsea saw in Mhykailo Mudryk
The pace of Mudryk alongside his quick thinking abilities coupled with his trickery led the blues to splash the cash swiftly to land the Ukrainian.
Mhykailo Mudryk’s personal life
The man born in Krasnohrad Kharkiv Oblast, is an Orthodox Christian who is so religious as he takes along with him some of his religious emblem to match venues.
Mhykailo Mudryk has spoken about the influence of his grandmother on his religious life.
The young footballer has got a lot of tattoos but he insisted that the tattoos that reads “Only Jesus” is his major tattoo.
He is the son of Nikolaevna Mudrik and Petrovych and has only one sibling who is a girl and her name is Tatyana Mudryk.
The former Shaktar Donetesk man has neither a girlfriend nor married, as he claims he wants to focus primarily on football to avoid distractions.
Mudryk salary with the blues
Mhykailo Mudryk earns £97,000-per-week wages with the blues and this is also a fee similar to the one offered to the young man by Arsenal.
But as circumstances may be, he has found himself at the West London Club, Chelsea.
With how fiery and vociferous that he was in his first appearance for the blues against Liverpool, he was expected to come handy and all action ready against Fulham.
But he didn’t deliver as he would have liked and in the manner fans of the blues would have wanted.
He would want to shake that aside and put that behind him.
Mudryk under Graham Potter at Chelsea might be a marriage set for greatness.
It is only a matter of time for the world to see what comes out of his footballing cookie jar.
