Chelsea have found their Kevin De Bruyne as Frank Lampard unlocks midfielder’s true potential

Last season under Maurizio Sarri, Mateo Kovacic was presented as a relatively beige footballer.

Chelsea have found their Kevin De Bruyne as Frank Lampard unlocks midfielder’s true potential 06c191c71594c2c8c599ea76c78108ac quality uhq format webp resize 720

The Croatian was regularly subbed on or off for Ross Barkley after 60 minutes, and didn’t appear to have any notable unique traits beyond skills that are widely considered as normal.

This season, however, he appears reborn under Frank Lampard.

The current Chelsea boss seems to have provided the 25 year-old with a platform from which to perform and showcase his natural game.

All players are different. Lampard, for example, was a goal-scoring central midfielder, whereas Claude Makelele’s game was largely dedicated to defensive happenings.

Kovacic, according to the underlying numbers beneath the surface, shows up as a highly capable ball-carrier in the centre of the park.

The Croatian international, by contrast, appears comfortable doing both after being given the license to do so by Lampard.

Over 200 central midfielders have accumulated over 1,000 minutes in Europe’s top five leagues this season, with Kovacic showing up impressively for dribbles completed combined with progressive carries per 90, shown below.

Evidently, the only player in England whose numbers can rival Kovacic’s is Kevin De Bruyne, who is carrying the ball around the same amount, but is averaging almost one more dribble per 90.

Ultimately, Kovacic is quite a rare talent. His skills are very suited to the modern game, as he’s unfazed when pressurised and he’s able to bring his team to the final third without purely relying on passing.

Under Lampard’s leadership, Kovacic is now portraying himself to be much more intriguing than many had initially thought.

Chelsea youngster Mason Mount has had a breakthrough season at Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old has not only made his Premier League debut during the 2019/20 campaign but has also made his international bow, coming on as a second-half substitute in the 4-0 European qualifier win over Bulgaria back in September.

He has made 41 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea so far this season scoring six goals and providing five assists.

The midfielder has gone from strength to strength under Frank Lampard and has earned praise from around the game for his performances.

WILLIAN’S LATEST WORKOUT ROUTINE

However, there is one player whose praise may mean a bit more to the Blues’ player.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is known as one of the greatest of his generation and of all time.

A goalscoring record of 627 goals in 718 appearances for the Catalan giants speaks for itself with the 32-year-old establishing himself as a legend of the game.
