    Blom is a permanent fixture in the Chiefs starting line-up and he was the only central midfielder, who played the entire match against Wydad with Kearyn Baccus and Willard Katsande being substituted.

    The 29-year-old looked the most likeliest Chiefs player to score against Wydad as he found himself in good positions and he is unlikely to be dropped.
