We laugh now, but in 1 year we'll finally know what he was saying

Writing for The Times, Souness said: "Maybe I’m missing something here but why does Frank Lampard — one of the most prolific goalscoring midfielders in Premier League history — keep selecting Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic in Chelsea’s central midfield? "It wasn’t until I looked at the statistics on Friday that I fully appreciated how ineffectual they have been.

"This season, Kovacic has a solitary goal from 29 league appearances; for Jorginho, the return is four from the same number of games, three of them from the penalty spot.

"Add in Ross Barkley (one in 20) and N’Golo Kanté (three from 22), and you wonder how Chelsea are third.

"It’s not even as if this campaign has been a blip. Last season, that quartet contributed a total of nine goals in 132 league appearances.

Some posters on here actually wanted Kovacic to return to Inter. He was way overrated from the day he first arrived here.

No he wasn't.
When he came at us he was a kid with huge potential and played as such.

Problem is he never matured or expanded his game. 6 or whatever years after he keeps doing the same useless runs with the ball which lead to nothing , same kind of horizontal instead of vertical plays and so on.

He was very talented when he came here, cant say he is overrated. But his progress stalled, id dare to say overall, he is worse now than the moment we sold him. He is not bad player to have per se, but nothing to drool about either. Decent 5th or 6th option. What bothers me about him is that he has the vision, but he never learned to pass properly. He ALWAYS overhits long balls, hence he is not even trying them anymore. Most of his passes are shorts ones to nearest player, he plays TOO safe, and he has lost his acceleration he had when he was here.

He is better defender tho. Covers more and tackles better.

I think Kova is one of if not the best ball carrier in EPL. You mention his covering and tackling but also his pressing high up the pitch are invaluable. The problem is playing Jorginho/Kovacic as jorginho can only offer passing but is limited in other areas. Next season will be likely be Kova/Kante with an attacking mid slightly ahead. Kova isn't world class (yet perhaps) but he's far from decent. He's finally found his feet and Lampard rates him very highly.
