The new signing did an amazing thing when Chelsea won a free kick at the edge of Everton’s 18-yard-box. He gave Reece James the free kick to take just to beat his racism allegations involving Real Madrid Miliatao and his act was well appreciated by Chelsea fans who kept chanting his name.
3. His 15 accurate passes
He only played the remaining 20 minutes of the game and had 15 accurate passes at a rate of 89% which looks amazing. Although, he received a yellow card for kicking the ball away towards the end of the game.
