The MVPs of the match are definitely Alexsandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko. Their performances were simply astonishing. Both players dragged their teammates to glory overtaking obstacles.

Kolarov’s (whoscored) rating was a whopping 8.85. The Serbian pushed hard on the left side of the field, attacking the enemy line and making irreparable damages to Conte’s defensive structure.
