Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic was dropped to the bench for the game against Leicester City but was back in the starting XI for the game against Manchester United on Monday night.
Kovacic’s performance was the only positive for Chelsea in our 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.
The 25-year-old had a passing accuracy of 87%, completed 69 passes including 2 key passes and 2 long balls and also completed 4 out of 5 dribbles going forward. While at the back, defending for the Blues, the Croatian midfielder made 3 tackles, 1 clearance and 3 interceptions.
N’Golo Kante’s injury against Manchester United means Kovacic will definitely start against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and his performance against Manchester United proves he should be starting regularly for the Blues.
