QPR fans swoon over Eberechi Eze despite disappointing defeat to Huddersfield

In what was a disappointing day at the office for Mark Warburton’s men on Saturday afternoon, the only player who could arguably come away with some form of meaningful credit, was Eberechi Eze.

The England U21 international couldn’t stop his side from falling to a 2-0 defeat to Huddersfield, but he certainly looked to be the one of the few Hoops stars intent on trying to ensure they didn’t.

As per Sofascore, his 7.7 match rating was only behind Huddersfield’s Harry Toffolo in the entire game, and when you look at some of his individual numbers, it is clear to see why.

The 21-year-old won a mammoth 12 of his 17 total duels, completed seven of his nine attempted dribbles, and provided three key passes.

After seeing his performance, QPR fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the attacking midfielder.

A couple of fans hailed his dribbling skills in particular, with one moment in the match seeing him complete a double nutmeg on two Huddersfield players before seeing his stinging drive palmed away.

Another fan meanwhile lauded him for getting back to form as a “more mature play-maker”.

It is difficult to look at the positives when your side has lost their third league game in a row, but Warburton will surely have been left impressed by Eze.

The prospect worked his socks off in battling for the team, as evidenced by his total of 12 duels won. If the rest of the QPR team had a similar never-say-die attitude and work ethic, then things could have panned out differently.

Instead, it was left to the shoulders of the 21-year-old to try and inspire a positive result – something that proved a little beyond his reach this time around.
