EPL: ‘He’s a real driving force, I love watching him’ – Martin Keown hails Chelsea star

December 12, 2021

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has described defender Antonio Rudiger as a ‘real driving force’ for Chelsea.

He said this after the Blues defeated Leeds United 3-2 on Saturday, adding that he loves watching the German play.

Rudiger earned two second-half penalties for the Chelsea side which were both converted by Jorginho.

The Germany international impressed with his pressing and marauding runs into the box.

And Keown branded the center-back a ‘nuisance to play against’.

“He’s a real driving force for Chelsea – I love watching him play,’ Keown told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“I was an aggressive defender myself, but I think this guy takes it to another level.

“When he gets the ball, he likes to run forward. The fans love him there because he makes things happen.

“Defensively – he’s so aggressive. He just shuts the door. So aggressive, strong, and he really leads from the back.

“He’s a nuisance to play against and he’s been outstanding for them.”
