Following our 1-0 win against Liverpool we asked some Indian Blues for their man of the match picks!
Bhuvan Gabbita, Hyderabad
Mason Mount is my man of the match vs Liverpool. He made a number of well-timed forward runs and his individual quality was the difference in giving us the lead before half-time. It feels good to see Mason delivering consistently good performances under Thomas Tuchel. A big shoutout to Andreas Christensen as well for his solid defensive performance last night.
Krishnakishor Varma, Hyderabad
My man of the match is definitely Mason Mount. His control of the ball and athleticism were the biggest factors in scoring the winner. Mason looked dangerous in attack every time he received the ball and his goal reminded me a lot of Eden Hazard in his prime. I can't wait to see more of the same from Mason!
Vinay Vernekar, Navi Mumbai
My man of the match is Jorginho. Under Tuchel he has become sharper and more dangerous against the opposition. He also had the presence of mind to fall back and protect the defence against Liverpool’s attacks throughout the game. He absolutely bossed the midfield and even made a number of accurate long-balls to our front-three. It took us seven years to win at Anfield, and it couldn’t have come in a better way!
Akshay Varma, Hyderabad
Mason Mount is the modern-day footballer who can attack and defend. He is the heartbeat of this Chelsea team and his pace and precision always pose a big threat to the opposition. He stole the show last night and has proven to be an undisputed star under Thomas Tuchel. A special mention to Christensen as well for putting in a shift last night!
