Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic showed more effort and endeavour in his twenty minutes on the pitch than most of his teammates managed in the whole game against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

The Croatian international almost immediately set up a goal for Romelu Lukaku after coming on as a substitute and he was constantly asking for the ball and trying to make things happen.

Manager Thomas Tuchel opted to start Jorginho and N’Golo Kante in midfield at Selhurst Park but Kovacic certainly put a case forward for starting against Lille tomorrow night. Fans on Twitter were quick to praise the 27-year-old’s contributions:

As some supporters have pointed out, Kovacic deserves to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. He has definitely been the most consistent out of Tuchel’s first-choice midfielders this season. While both Kante and Jorginho’s form has been pretty erratic, the Croatian has rarely put a foot wrong in recent months.
