Following a fine performance against Newcastle United, we asked some Indian Blues for their man of the match picks.

N'Golo Kante's performance was brilliant! The recent run of impressive defensive displays, when compared to last season, is so satisfying to watch. What an incredible performance against Newcastle United.
Hadique Jamaludeen, Kochi
My man of the match has to be N’Golo Kante. Sporting the captain's armband, he had a great game. His involvement in the final third was critical. On top of that he made some crucial interceptions in midfield, which proved to be key in securing the win.
Suraj Sarang, Mangaluru
Once again, N'Golo Kante was everywhere on the pitch, supporting both defense and attack. Making three clearances and three interceptions, Kante made sure he kept the Newcastle attack at bay. His positioning on the pitch was fantastic, playing an important role in securing the three points.
Abinav Karthik, Tiruppur
My man of the match pick is Ben Chilwell! He played very well and gave it his all. His presence on the pitch was felt in pretty much every move that Chelsea made. His link-up with Hakim Ziyech was just too good!
Gwynfor Pereira, Mangaluru
N’Golo Kante has been the best defensive midfielder in the world for some time now. In the game against Newcastle, he made some crucial interceptions and tackles in midfield. His off-the-ball positioning was top notch as well. A performance deserving of the captain’s armband, as well as being the man of the match.
