His heat map shows he sticks to the byline and isn't a player tasked with picking a pass. The 27-year-old’s current deal expires in 2021. I am sure he will do great things.”. As for Telles's age, we think the reason why he attracted the attention of big clubs this summer – and not before – was that he became much more pivotal to Porto's attack last season. He's fairly accurate on the ball though not the most progressive, with only 30 per cent of his passes going forward. In Marcos Alonso, the Blues arguably have Europe's most productive full-back while Emerson Palmieri is one of the most well-rounded left-backs around at the minute. On paper, Chelsea have two of the best left-backs in the Premier League. There are question marks about his defensive ability so that will concern some people, but he’s a leader who is also fantastic on the ball and can deliver some great crosses, so at least he’ll provide an improvement in the attacking game.
He isn't in the top 30 for crosses attempted in the Premier League and his 19 per cent success rate explains, to some extent, why he isn't creating many chances.

There's no guarantee Telles fits in with the rigours of the Premier League and, at 27, time isn't on his side to settle in over a couple of years. But Emerson is having almost 100 touches per 90 – an average which puts him within the top 15 for all Premier League full-backs. Turning 28 in December, Telles is a older than both Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams, but a quick look at his stats using a Premier League standard shows why the bosses at Old Trafford may still want him on board: Telles is an outstanding attacker and defender in our overall ratings, he's dominant in the air, close to unstoppable in duels when he has possession, and a phenomenal finisher for a LB as well. Here's a side-by-side comparison with Shaw and Williams: There's a clear difference in passing styles here, and both Shaw and Williams are more likely to carry the ball forward, too.

Transfer deadline day came and went, and this season, it actually lived up to the billing.

FPL investment in any of the Red Devils’ defence looks undesirable at present, given that they have shipped as many goals in their first three Premier League matches of 2020/21 (11) as they did in the final 17 fixtures of last season.
Yet neither seem to have done enough to gain Frank Lampard’s trust. So far this term, Telles has scored eight goals in 23 league appearances. The Porto man averages 70 touches, of which 38.91 are passes. The only trait the two players seemingly share is that they both like to hug the touchline. I don’t know why a transfer didn’t happen before. Chelsea could raise this cash through the sales of Alonso and Emerson.

While Emerson clearly isn't Lampard's ideal full-back, he has been his first-choice this season so it makes sense to look at his averages to get an idea of what is expected.
