Gearing up for another 3 points

Fede’s analysis

We need to get this guy on MM ASAP. Interesting to see what comes to mind when he things of his fellow midfielders. He’s not wrong, the unique blend of skills is obvious but there quite a lot of overlap as well.


When you’re hot, you’re hot. Hopefully Rodrygo stays healthy this time and can ride this wave to the end of the season.

Carlo continues to rotate

Ancelotti continues to enjoy having so many midfielders at his disposal. He can now rest his veteran midfielders with minimum fuss and not lose much quality on the pitch. Rotations are good and its wonderful to see Carlo embracing the practice even more.

The high cost of depth

Hazard may yet get more chances as Carlo continues to try and rehabilitate him. There is no doubt that Carlo has given the Belgian opportunities. It is hard to see Hazard being a key player even in terms of depth. We can always hope.

Fun and games
