The Blues defender was the only player in the Premier League that weekend to play a full 90 minutes of action whilst still completing 100% of his passes accurately.
The 21-year-old has garnered a reputation as a ball-playing centre-half over the last two seasons on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach – and that was on full display at Wembley against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
However, the Chelsea man still believes he has more to give – as those passes were all simple.
He told the club’s official match programme for the Everton game: “In the Bundesliga, I played a bit further forward sometimes, but in the Tottenham game I don’t think I had to make too many passes, actually, and the ones I had to do were easy ones.
“That’s one of the things you have to be aware of as the defender in the middle of a back three: you can’t do too many risky things, especially in a game like that, when we’d been working so hard and maybe some of the players were tired.
“You have to look at the body language of the teammates you want to pass to and I don’t think the passes I made were hard ones.
“Of course, I’m happy all the passes went to my man, but I don’t think they reflected the ball-playing defender I am or the composure people say I have.”
