April Discussion: Part 2.1
1. Cech: Never doubted his skills. Made several more spectacular yet crucial saves in the past month. Really top class.
2. Ivanovic: Won a place in my eleven due to Luiz' brilliance in midfield and Cahill's absence. But still a proper CB anyway. Azpi performed better at RB than Brana.
3. Cole: Missed out several games due to injury, but performed as good as ever when available.
4. Luiz: Again a maestro in midfield as he played several creative passes and assists (including one long assist for Torres against Rubin), and had some excellent goals as well. Decent CM.
7. Ramires: Always a menace to our oppositions, and a wonderful player. Unlucky to miss out due to Luiz' brilliance and Lampard's strong presence in midfield.
8. Lampard: Consistent performances in all games. Great assists, including the one for Torres against Rubin. Always brilliant when called upon and unfortunate not to have matched Sir Bobby Tambling's record by now. One more to go, dear friend.
9. Torres: Brilliant in the games against Rubin Kazan, and played with sheer confidence in the games after. Was it the mask?
10. Mata: A bit turned off in some games. Perhaps he needed a rest, but now and then always a constant menace and always with a vision. Oscar did not performed as well, so Mata gets the spot.
