Just as amazing as his passing and dribbling going forward – one superb nutmeg on Fabinho in particular – was his defensive work.
The 5 tackles listed above were mostly real crunching efforts. He wasn’t afraid to put his body on the line at any point, and the crowd at Stamford Bridge were absolutely loving it.
Let’s hope this is just the beginning.
