According to Standard Sport, Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has been the club’s most consistent performer this season.
“Kovacic is a good shout,” Standard Sport stated when asked which player has been Chelsea’s most consistent performer this season.
“I was asked by Bournemouth’s website to pick out Chelsea’s best player prior to their visit to Stamford Bridge in September and went for him.
“Considering his was a signing out of necessity – a loan deal made permanent therefore immune to FIFA’s transfer ban – his improvement is a most welcome fillip. He has generally played with an energy and purpose rarely witnessed during his first season.
“Kovacic has probably been overlooked in that regard because of the flurry of young players stepping up so impressively.”
