During Manchester City’s crunch Premier League title race clash against European champions Chelsea, many Sky Blues were blown away by the performance of midfield colossus Rodri.
Pep Guardiola’s side travelled to Stamford Bridge to begin a plethora of challenging fixtures over this next week, with Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain awaiting them next followed by a trip to Liverpool.
The English champions were boosted today by the returns of Aymeric Laporte and Rodri who both enjoyed fine performances this afternoon in west London.
City bossed possession and dictated play throughout most of the 90 minutes and were eventually rewarded when Gabriel Jesus wriggled away inside the area and fired a deflected shot past the on-looking Edouard Mendy for 1-0.
Rodri, coming back into the fold today, was rated among the highest Man City players on SofaScore and largely nullified the likes of N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.
Reacting to his performance, Sky Blues supporters were simply blown away – so much so that some believe it is his ‘best performance ever’.
