1. KAI HAVERTZ (7.2)
Havertz missed a couple big chances over the weekend, but made a chance count in this one, which also gave us brief hope of being able to salvage not only a decent night out of things, but perhaps even go on to win the game.
Alas, that notion quickly got scuppered just seconds into the second-half, though it sure still would’ve been nice to score at least one in the second half as well.
That’s a dozen goals for Big Game Kai on the season, 9 of which have come in either the Premier League or the Champions League — the most such goals (combined) on the team.
2. REECE JAMES (5.9)
Great to have Reecey back — just his second start in 2022.
3. MATEO KOVAČIĆ (5.7, sub)
Kova starting just 3 of our last 8 games — and only against the likes of Norwich, Boro (FA Cup), and Lille second leg — is one of those Tuchelian mysteries.
