Movement, first touch and finishing: Jovic’s highlights against Cagliari

By Oliver Fisher -

Luka Jovic is on fire at the moment, especially after he netted a brace against Cagliari in the Coppa Italia last night to help propel Milan to a 4-1 win.

The numbers speak volumes about just how much Jovic is enjoying playing at the moment. Since the beginning of last month, the striker has scored the most goals in all competitions of any Serie A player (5).

Counting his assist against Frosinone back on 2 December, he has 6 goal contributions in his last 215 minutes played, an average of one every 36 minutes.

Last night against Cagliari, in addition to his two goals he had three shots on goal, 30 touches of the ball, a 74% pass accuracy rate, one key pass completed, one big chance missed and two duels out of two won.

Jović has now directly and indirectly been involved in 9 out 15 goals scored in the last 8 matches for Milan, and you can see his hilights below.

  1. we should play 2 Strikers



    Leao———— -Reijnders———-Pulisic



    1. So Leao and Pulisic will play as wingbacks?
      One of them barely runs back now and the other is injury prone.
      Put one of Calabria, Kalulu, Jimenez or Terracciano at RB and take Giroud out of that lineup.
      If you going to play with 2 men up front, one of Leao, Pulisic or Okafor should accompany Jovic, not no 37 year old Giroud.

      1. A big part of Pulisic’s miserable time at Chelsea was because Tuchel loved to play him as a wingback.
        And I can tell you that Pulisic makes a terrible wingback. While he does try hard on defense, he’s not great at defense, and all that running back and forth slows down what he is really good at – making offensive movements that lead to a shot on goal.

    1. Chill bro. They’re both our strikers. You don’t have to dislike one to support the other. And Pioli certainly doesn’t have that luxury. The better they both play, the better for us.
      But also, Giroud has earned his place; over the last couple of years, and even since the beginning of the season. The stats say so.
      So, chill. Enjoy both. And let the coach decide?

  2. To me Jovic should be the one starting for Milan, in the modern game for your attack to be highly effective you need a striker with mobility, one who can run into space to receive through balls, one who is rapid enough to partake in fast counter attacks. Giroud offers non of these because he a slow & static striker. Who often relies on his back to goal and touch passing. Jovic is younger, faster, has the work rate, a keen eye for goal. Giroud is 37 years and will be 38 years this year, we should not have to rely on him all the time. Jovic is in serious form and for it to continue he must keep playing and starting games
