Chelsea fans blown away by latest Mateo Kovacic performance

Chelsea returned to winning ways at home to Aston Villa on Wednesday night – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter picked out Mateo Kovacic for yet another impressive performance.

In-form striker Tammy Abraham opened the scoring and assisted teammate Mason Mount for the vital second goal to secure a win.

It was important to win in midweek after losing the two previous league games and the scoreline perhaps didn’t reflect the dominance for large spells over Villa.

Kovacic was at the heart of the Chelsea success in the centre of the park and his stock continues to rise.

He helped inject pace into the Blues attack at times with either a quick dribble or pass around the corner, while he also dominated the midfield battle.

The Croatian really seems to be the complete midfielder with his athleticism and it’s no surprise to see him really cementing a regular spot in the team now under Lampard.
