Malcom Oliveira: the former Barcelona winger is one of the star players for the Russian based club. The 24 year old winger already has 1 goal in 3 appearances for his club. Chelsea FC must be on their toes if they wish to control his dazzling moves.3. Douglas Santos: the Brazilian born left full back in conjuction with Malcom(who plays in the left wing) will seek to cause a whole lot of problem for Recee James. he is a modern type of full back who goes front to crest chances. He is also good defensively. Chelsea should watch out for him.4. Sardar Azmoun: the 24 year old Iranian striker is one of the most prolific striker in the Russian Premier league. His combination with Dzuba is a beauty to behold. He scored 19 goals from 24 matches last season. This season, he has already scored 5 goals in 6 appearances.5. Luiz Claudinho: the Brazilian born attacking midfielder is one of the most talented players in the side. He can unlock any tight defense with his vision and passes.
