There are not many midfielders in the world today that are capable of chipping in for four goal-scoring chances created and three tackles in one match alone. But this is what manager Simone Inzaghi can now regularly expect from his workhorse midfielder.
Overall, Milinkovic-Savic has now logged nine-goal contributions in league play this season with four goals and five assists. He is also averaging 7.7 ground duels won per game in Serie A so far this season.
Expected more of these kinds of performances from Milinkovic-Savic over the remainder of this season.
