And the nominations are:
Nemanja Matic with another rock like performance. He is rapidly becoming one of our most important players and I just love his commitment.
Eden Hazard in for his what seems like obligatory nomination for Man of the Match this week. He is the Chelsea player who makes the difference in games, and big games at that. A constant threat when running at defences, superb link up play, and he has vastly improved his tracking back and defensive duties. He could have scored a superb goal but it did lead to the corner when Drogba scored so justice was done. I hope someone wraps up his ankles which must take a battering in every game. Becoming a genuinely world class player.
Thibeaut Courtois had another impressive game. The mark of a good goalkeeper is that you don’t notice them. The mark of a great ‘keeper is that you cannot fail to notice them. Courtois’ command of the penalty area is almost unparalleled – you just know he is going to catch or punch the dangerous cross away – and always makes the right decision in the process. Add to that a few excellent saves in a match that he above all deserved to see out with a clean sheet.
