The 27-year old has always been a key player in the Chelsea set-up since joining from Real Madrid in the summer of 2022 but the midfielder who is not known for statistics especially in the attacking end has taken his game to another level this season with five assists and two goals in the premier league so far which includes a PL January goal of the month winner against Liverpool.

Kovacic has spoken on his improved stats this season and he believes he’s just had more luck due to the Chelsea strikers’ finishing.

“More assists is maybe thanks to the strikers, when you give the ball sometimes they don’t score! This year I had the luck that they arrived and scored it.” Kovacic told the Chelsea website.

The Chelsea number 8 is however not getting carried away by the stats as that is not his primary role in the team.

“I am happy when the stats are good but I never watch the stats. It’s important but not too important. My role in the team is something else, I try to be involved in other things. That’s more my job not the stats!”
