Smalling, The King of Physical Duels (Stats)

The Englishman had a remarkable performance on Sunday. Smalling gave consistency to Roma’s backline leading his sector with charisma and physical skills.

If Roma collected three pivotal points in the Serie A round 6 against Lecce, the fans of the Giallorossi should also praise their new Englishman. The guardian protector of Roma’s fort had a remarkable performance on Sunday. Chris Smalling is already impressive for his tactical and physical skills.

He can be considered the king of physical duels. The 29-year-old from London operated as a centre-back with Mancini and managed to keep Pau Lopez safe. 92% of accurate passes for the former England international, 80 touches and many aerial and ground duels won throughout the 90 minutes.
