“He has a great understanding of the game and masterfully attacks spaces, good mentality and self-confidence.”
“He is the most important emergence from English football in recent years.”
Chelsea are on a hot-streak, having won 13 games in row, having equaled the all-time record set by Arsenal in 2002, when they won 13 consecutive Premier League matches in a row.
