Schalke will enter the Revierderby in the Bundesliga’s second place after a 2-0 win over Hamburg on Sunday.
[ MORE: PST’s McKennie profile ]
— McKennie, 19, covered 12.51 kilometers in the match, more than any other player by nearly a half km (Aaron Hunt of Hamburg ran 12.07).
— Only Burgstaller (94) recorded more individual runs than McKennie’s 91.
— His three attempts on goal were also a match-high. One was a flub, but another was barely redirected out for a corner.
— He’s now started five-straight matches when fit.
A win over Christian Pulisic’s Borussia Dortmund on Nov. 25 would put Schalke’s rivals six points in the rear view. And McKennie’s played a far bigger role than even we suspected during our preseason chat.
