  1. Daniel Akpeyi, Kaizer Chiefs, January 2021

    Daniel Akpeyi - 7/10

    Kept busy by Gallants upon his return to the starting line-up.

    Akpeyi was equal to everything thrown at him and he pulled off a magnificent point-blank save to parry a glancing header from Thabo Mnyamane.

     
     
  2. Reeve Frosler, Kaizer Chiefs, November 2020

    Reeve Frosler - 7/10

    Marked his first appearance of the season with a solid performance.

    Frosler made a lot of runs down the right flank whilst also coming up trumps defensively against Celimpilo Ngema. 

     
  3. Sfiso Hlanti, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sifiso Hlanti - 4/10

    Struggled to contain Katlego Otladisa, who tormented him throughout the game.

    Hlanti picked up two unnecessary yellow cards as he fouled Otladisa and he was deservedly sent off at a time when the momentum was with Chiefs.

  4. Daniel Cardoso, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Daniel Cardoso - 7/10

    Good performance from the no-nonsense defender.

    Cardoso dealt with the likes of Sede Dion and Thabo Mnyamane with class, and he should have grabbed a late winning goal with his free header. 

  5. Erick Mathoho, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021

    Erick Mathoho - 7/10

    An improved display by the experienced centre back. 

    Mathoho read the game brilliantly and always positioned himself in the right place to make a tackle or clearance.

    Also came close to grabbing a late winner after connecting Bernard Parker's set-piece. 

  6. Njabulo Blom

    Njabulo Blom - 6/10

    Looked good in his natural position as a central midfielder. 

    Blom fought hard for the ball and he marshaled the space behind Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who had the liberty to drive forward. 

     
  7. Cole Alexander, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Cole Alexander - 6/10

    Sloppy and roughed up by Miguel Timm a few times.

    However, Alexander still had a decent performance as he did well to carry the balls from midfield to attack where Chiefs couldn't create clear-cut chances. 

  8. Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs, September 2021,

    Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - 5/10

    Tried too hard to impress after being handed his first start of the season.

    Ngcobo did pass the ball around well and he also ran his socks off, but his overall impact was minimal.

  9. Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, August, 2021

    Keagan Dolly - 5/10

    Nowhere near his usual self.

    Dolly was actively involved in the proceedings without ever conjuring anything meaningful, with Lehlohonolo Nonyane and Ayanda Nkilil doing a good job to keep him quiet. 

     
  10. Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Khama Billiat - 6/10

    At the heart of everything good stemming from Chiefs' attack. 

    Billiat showed a lot of eagerness to get himself involved in the game and he fired Chiefs' first shot on target, but chances didn't fall for him in the box. 

  11. Lebogang Manyama Kaizer Chiefs

    Lebogang Manyama - 4/10

    A failed experiment with Manyama operating as a false number nine.

    Manyama struggled to become the focal point in the attack and he was peripheral in terms of involvement which led to his withdrawal at half-time.

  12. Bernard Parker, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Bernard Parker - 6/10

    Provided some creativity after replacing Manyama as he combined well with his teammates in the final third and his delivery from set-pieces was good. 
  13. Lazarous Kambole, Kaizer Chiefs, December 2020

    Lazarous Kambole - N/A

    Didn't get much time having been introduced in stoppage time.
