Played well but it’s the conditions we know he can play in. Against a team who barely made an effort to put a player in the box. Everything on the ground, slow and predictable. Perfect opponent for him.

Really good performance. One of the few looking to force things to happen.

The CB pairing in future games should be Lindelof and Tuanzebe

If only that gollum looking feck could see this

I am really getting tired of this agenda against Maguire. Maguire is our best defender. This isn't my opinion. It's a fact...

Both of them were very solid today and the only poor defensive play we had was because AWB lost Pulisic from a cross. Thankfully, Maguire slightly cleared that ball.

But it makes such a difference to have Fred and McT to shield them.

Well. It's actually your opinion that a defensive performance is conclusive decided by those categories of stats.

Alot of people calling for Axel today - Lindelof responded with a don't count me out performance this evening.

Fair play Victor. Great performance.

He was the best CB on the pitch today.

His calmness worked well for us today, and shows why he's ahead of Bailly. I don't remember him really being tested though.

I never want to hear people question his ability on the ball again. No other defender would drive through the middle with the ball like that to push the play forward except him. He doesn't do it all the time, but when he does he's effective. There's a place for Victor in this team alongside someone who is quicker, but I doubt that anyone would be willing to entertain the notion of Maguire being the one to drop to the bench regardless of how well Lindelof performs.

He was one of them. Silva was good. Maguire was great in the first half, dominated but Lindelof had the best performance in the second half. He was aggressive and played on the front foot, something he usually doesn't do.

More of this, please. Tuanzebe is breathing down his neck and he knows he needs to step up. Great game today.
Tuanzebe is breathing down Maguire’s neck, if only you lot would realize

Didn’t see the PSG game and today I started watch at minute 60. But he was better than I’ve ever seen him those 30 minutes. Really good actually.

What a massive game from him. He has improved so many things in his play in two games. Not taking easy options, he is now taking difficult balls down and to his teammates. Passing very good today.

Competition from the bench helps a lot of players in our team.

Played very well, and those two driving runs were the most progressive pieces of play we managed late o.

Are there some that I missed that you would like to see? Or perhaps you just don't like that the stats don't back up your agenda???
Really? Wow. You don't think shutting areas, steer opponents, slowing players up (don't let them pass you or get to a finish), teamwork etc etc matter? You can use stats to substantiate a opinion, fine, but to say those six stats tell all about a defensive performance you must think that football is a non-complex binary game.

Pleased for him, two good games in a row hopefully he has, dear I say it turned a corner. But that said we played with 6 defenders McT and Fred were so deep.

You sure you’re not confusing him with someone else? Didn’t witness any attacking play by him... had a decent game, wasn’t greatly tested for me.
I guess you did not watch the whole match then? He was in the opposing box during open play too. When you get a 1 v 1 against the opposing forward it is being tested. He may not have been greatly tested but he was very good today.

I’m one of his harshest critics. He was superb today 2nd half. Grew some balls and tried to assert himself. Well played victor

I like active Lindelof. He is a great CB when he decided to step in.

He was great today. Right place every time. The forays forward were a pleasant surprise, both decisive, effective. That's 3 in a row for him. Long may it continue

He played well, best CB on the pitch. Helped Chelsea don't really have anyone who can bully, he's comfortable when in that scenario.

I think most know by now I can't stand him - but I thought he was genuinely very good today. He played with so much more oomph, he actually carried the ball forwards and played with some aggression. Much, much better.

I suspect it's a 1 off though.

He was literally in Chelsea's 18 yard box once, after driving the ball forward from the deep and a 1-2 with someone else (AWB, Greenwood?). Pogba missed the shot after his pass though, or it could've been an assist as well. And at least one very important 1v1 as last defender versus Werner, in which he forced Werner to turn around. Loads of other great stuff as well, like crucial clearences and blocks. What game did you watch mate?

Very good at winning back the ball early today and good the ball. Chelsea didn’t create much and one reason was that both Lindelof and Maguire won back the ball high up the pitch.

Show me that stats...I showed what was available. If you have more to show then I am more than happy to see them. But just because these stats don't coincide with your agenda it doesn't mean they're rubbish...

Yeah, he was aggressive in this game which was good to see. Hope he plays like this all the time, the passive Lindelof is very poor.
