Mateo Kovacic impressed in midfield alongside Jorginho in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Watford on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was impressed with the performance of the Croatian international against Watford on Saturday and he explained what he loved about Kovacic’s performance.

Lampard said: “Kovacic, his ability to play – him and Jorgi together – and then that ability to drive from midfield, that’s not the norm.

“As a midfield player it’s your worst nightmare having a player who can play and then drive by you out of nowhere.

“He was doing that today to great effect. Really pleased with him.”
