Best & Worst: Chiefs v SuperSport

Best & Worst: Chiefs v SuperSport

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 12, 2017 11:35 PM

Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst players, following Kaizer Chiefs' 1-0 loss to SuperSport United in the MTN8.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see the best and worst performers on the night.
 
Best:
 
Morgan Gould: 7/10
 
Voted Man of the Match on the night, Gould was superb in defence. He gave Paez no joy in the final third and was key to SuperSport keeping clean sheet.
 
Siphiwe Tshabalala: 6.5/10
 
Tshabalala was Chiefs' engine on the night. He kept things ticking as they dominate possession, while he was also unlucky to hit the woodwork on the first half.
 
Clayton Daniels: 7/10
 
Alongside Gould, Daniels put in a solid shift in the heart of the defence, as they did well to frustrate the Chiefs attackers on the night.
 
Ramahlwe Mphahlele: 6.5/10
 
Mphahlele was impressive on both ends of the pitch. He had a lot joy going forward and was rock solid defensively.
 
Grant Kekana: 6.5/10
 
Kekana put in a stellar effort defensively down the right flank, and he did well restrict Masilela in the final third.
 
Aubrey Modiba: 6/10
 
A lot Chiefs' attacks went down SuperSport's left flank, and Modiba did well to deal with the constant threat from the Chiefs attackers.
 
Worst:
 
George Maluleka: 4/10
 
Maluleka didn't have a bad game, but he couldn't stamp his authority on the encounter despite Chiefs having most of the possession.
 
Cole Alexander: 4/10
 
Alexander didn't impose himself enough in the middle of the park and was often muscled off the ball. He was replaced at the start of the second half.
 
Thuso Phala: 4/10
 
Phala replaced Alexander in the second half, but the winger had effect going forward.
 
Gustavo Paez: 4/10
 
The Venezuelan worked hard off the ball, but endured a frustrating evening against Gould and Daniels in the 18-yard box.

@Money-spender.. I like Katsande as a person but as a footballer, I'm afraid he's a bit wreckless when coming to challenges and that's going to cost us a lot. On the goal we conceded, Gordinho was left chasing a shadow and Katsande arrived late whilst he's ment to be protecting our defence. Big ups to ssu for exposing just how toothless we are upfront. You can have all good midfielders but without a quality goal poacher then you'll always be found wanting when coming to scoring

@tebogo gm mahlaba on my side i wont blame strikers, on that game we did not see even one through ball from our middle fielders. Parker and Paez they cant do anything without the supply we have. Maluleka is just useless to say on this team we have, if i was the coach i was going to take him out and bring shaba to his place and have malongwane on the wing. Katsande is ok alone difensively and have Eksein and Shaba on the attack, Put Malongwane & Thwala on the wings and Paez up front. Its my Opnion. Maluleka is USELESS

Chiefs played well on the day,but they don't score goals,we don't have to allways blame the coach,the management of the team they mus't think now,we need the quality striker like Brockie,Musona,Evans Rusike,when they release Xulu to Maritzburg united they think about a swap deal of Rusike why? With lebese to Duwns they we're surposed to go for Ngele or Malajila.guys we can't relie on paker to score goals for us anymore,we need to Bring the new player and the Quality in the team or ells it will be the same story again this season.

I was watching a different game then... The best thing chiefs did was hitting the woodwork... Otherwise they were average (4.5). All of them! Supersport defense was suspect on many occasions, I don't think they were solid. Chiefs was just average. I thank you

We just need Ngele , Ntshangase, Mlambo and a proven number nine. I wonder why we didn't demand Ngele and Malajila in Lebese deal. Bobby is useless
