Chelsea secured a 2-1 away victory against Watford on Saturday evening in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter picked out Mateo Kovacic for special praise following his display.
The Blues moved up to third in the league table with the three points they gained at Vicarage Road against bottom of the division Watford.
Tammy Abraham opened the scoring in the 5th minute with an excellent chipped finish, as he latched onto a superb through ball from Jorginho.
Abraham then turned provider in the second-half when his cross was tapped in by Christian Pulisic, who now has four goals in his last two league games.
Frank Lampard’s side were unfortunately once again made to see out some nervous closing stages, which included a last-ditch save from goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Watford pulled one back through Gerard Deulofeu in the 80th minute from the penalty spot, after VAR harshly deemed that Jorginho fouled the Spaniard in the box.
The Blues held on for yet another away victory though and their form on the road this campaign has been exceptional.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media were left in awe of yet another dominant performance from Kovacic in the centre of the park.
The Croatian midfielder is still waiting to score his first goal for the club, but he helped run the show against Watford and there should have been far more goals for the visitors if not for a masterclass from goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Kovacic, 25, is going through a purple patch of form where he’s impressing so much in possession and is very enjoyable to watch.
Here are some Chelsea fans raving about Kovacic:
