The combination of the two stats shows how safe Chelsea are when the ball is at Mateo Kovacic’s feet.

Mateo Kovacic’s unique skillset have secured his place in the starting XI, and his performances validate his loan and permanent transfer.

They also have a useful alternative in Mateo Kovacic.

In the loss to Manchester City, Kovacic had four dribbles in the Chelsea half and one in the Manchester City half.

Chelsea are not too deeply committed to this bandwagon, and are willing to let Kepa Arrizabalaga occasionally hoof one over midfield.

He has completed 53 dribbles (seventh-most in the league) for an 84% completion rate.
