Enzo Fernández named Man of the Match in Chelsea’s 1-0 win vs. Fulham


Enzo Fernández has been named the Man of the Match in Chelsea’s 1-0 win vs. Fulham on matchday 21 of the Premier League.

The Argentine had not been showing his best performances in recent games, but today he played brilliantly. He led Chelsea’s midfield, helping in the build-up of the play and the ball recovery.

His statistics, via StatmanDave, speak for themselves:

93 touches
82% pass accuracy
50/61 passes completed
9 ground duels won
5/8 long balls completed
4/6 dribbles completed
3 tackles won
3 key passes
1 big chance created


  1. “IMO Exequiel Palacios continues to be the most underrated player in Europe.

    He has the ability and potential to be one of the very best midfielders in the world and shows it consistently.

    Might even be the most complete midfielder I have seen this season.”

    Exequiel Palacios’ injury-time winner handed Bayer Leverkusen yet another win (1–0 away to Ausburg) and topped off a stellar day for the Argentinian midfielder:

    👌 128 touches
    ⚽️ 1 goal
    🎯 4 shots/1 on target (0.27 xG)
    🔑 3 key passes
    🔭 5/5 accurate long balls
    👟 105/108 accurate passes (0.33 xA)
    💨 2/2 successful dribbles
    🤺 7/7 ground duels won
    🦵 3 tackles

    It’s people reacting palacios performances in x/ twitter remember it’s non Argentina nt fans

    • He is the best replacement for Depaul who is decling expectedly. My only concern is his fragile body, but post world cup he seems to have kept his body fit. But yeah, he is such a smooth passer of the ball and is playing at the highest level right now.

      • He is not exactly, RDP has more attacking skills, more creative, better dribbler. Rather as our DM if Enzo doesnt want to play there anymore, i dont like Alexis as DM in single pivot, not good enough defensively. Against top teams Scaloni could overload the midfield again like vs Croatia and vs Brazil last time.
        CRO Mac Paredes Enzo RDP, BRA Mac Enzo RDP Lo Celso, now Mac Palacios Enzo RDP plus Lo Celso the 5th option.

        • RDP is a must for Copa behind Messi, a workhorse with mobility. That half right midfielder/winger role suits him perfectly, who protects behind Messi/overlapping Molina, the chemistry is great between them, Palacios is different. RDP is playing great nowadays btw and one of the biggest leaders. Irreplaceble atm.
