So I dont know where to post this because I dont see a dedicated thread for it (understandable) but I want to give big kudos (as if they would be reading this haha) to the medical team and fitness coach(es).
Joel used to play a game or two then miss 5, then come back, play a couple and miss another 5. Same goes for Keita who apart from an injury or two that were, in my opinion, more of the inevitable type (like when that c**t Pogba tried to break his ankle) stayed healthy. The difference between their current fitness levels and the fitness level they had in past season is just unbelievable. Even Thiago who missed a few games through injury seems to be doing much better than last season (overall)
With that said, I think Matip is probably top 5 most underrated players in this league. This guy has been an absolute rock at the back with VVD. Fast, strong, always manages to tackle the ball without fouling the opponent, massive in the air (both defensively and offensively), drives opposing defences absolutely crazy every time he decides to go on one of his adventures, etc. The Legend!!!
