Jose Mourinho has praised new Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic after a series of impressive performances.
Mourinho brought Matic to Chelsea in the January transfer window but many focused on Juan Mata's departure. It turns out Mourinho was right and Matic is indeed exactly what Chelsea needed. The Serbian has played the so called "Makelele role" for the Blues and has dominated in multiple ways. He often marks the oppositions best attacking midfielder, he closes down passing lanes, and he provides a big body in the box. He does a great job of keeping possession and keeping the ball moving on the attack. Matic has also been a decent contributor on the fantasy sheet, mainly through defensive stats. At a price of £ 9.82M, he can be considered for fantasy teams as a low risk, low upside option. Mar 25 - 7:57 PM
