1. ANTONIO RÜDIGER (8.6)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 83
Passes: 57/71
Shots: 2**/2
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 1+1+3
Clearances: 2
Aerial duels won: 4

Rüdiger joins John Terry and Branislav Ivanović in notable braces of headers by center backs, and Toni topped it off with a fun celebration on the first, too, “hitting the woah” as the kids say these days (or so I’m told; I’m way too old and crusty to keep up with the latest viral TikTok memes or whatnot and I’d like to kindly ask you to get off my lawn). We know that Rüdiger’s a dancing maniac, so hopefully he scores more often and shows us a few more dance moves.

2. REECE JAMES (7.2)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 71
Passes: 25/37
Take-ons: 1/2
Fouls drawn: 3
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 1+1+2
Aerial duels won: 3

Every time Reece James crosses the ball, we all hit the woah, too.

3. N’GOLO KANTÉ (6.8)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 61
Passes: 27/37
Shots: 0/1
Take-ons: 2/4
Fouls drawn: 2
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 3+3+3
Clearances: 3

It’s certainly not been Kanté’s best season, and in several of his recent appearances, he was rated below the team average, even. But maybe a whiff of that Leicester air that made him into a Premier League superstar was all that was needed.
