Stat show just how native Mateo Kovacic is to Sarriball
- Kovacic impressed as a sub in the 3-2 win against Arsenal on Saturday
After a bit more than 30 minutes played for Chelsea following his loan from Real Madrid, the Croatian midfielder is yet to misplace a pass in the blue shirt. All of his 43 passes vs Arsenal were accurate. What more is there to ask?
Mateo Kovačić vs. Arsenal:— Squawka Football (@Squawka) August 18, 2018
• 100% take-ons completed
• 100% pass accuracy
• 100% tackles won
With 3 points as the dessert, it's only natural Mateo loved his debut game:
He is really, really warmly received by fans & journalists and hopefully, there's much more to come:
Speaking of Kovacic and Hazard after the game, Sarri said: ''In this moment, they are not able to play the full 90 minutes. Also, I think to play 25-30 mins when the intensity of the game is going down, is better. I think Mateo can become a great player.''
Is he a starter once 100% match fit?
