George McEachran


  • Made a very good start to the game by providing a quality, fast, inswining corner to assist the first goal which was a header in the second minute

  • Took many set-pieces throughout the game - delivery was very good

  • Demands the ball often and plays short passes

  • Also capable of quality long balls - good vision

  • Many passes were short passes back to defenders

  • Worked very hard - often closed down defenders

  • Failed to attack very often - did not take players on, often preferred the easy pass

  • Bad, cynical tackle in stoppage time to prevent Ajax from scoring which led to a yellow card

Overall, George McEachran seems to be currently priced about right (Did not stand out as good value). He did look to be one of the best players on the pitch technically and in the first half especially he was on the ball very often. His set pieces are also very effective.

However, he lacked the attacking threat and creativity when on the ball in open play which his fellow Chelsea youth team players such as Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour have been able to show.

As a youth player on Football Index, it is often hard to get noticed by other traders unless you are either scoring many goals or being selected for the first-team and currently it does not appear that McEachran is able to do either.

He is a player which is worth monitoring as technically he does appear to be very good and if in the future he was able to break into Chelsea's first team (Currently appears very unlikely) he would of course stand out as very good value as he is relatively very cheap for an English 19 year old at a top club.
