Amakhosi were humiliated by their Gauteng rivals in a one-sided PSL encounter which was played on Saturday

Kaizer Chiefs suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in a massive encounter at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.

It is Amakhosi's heaviest ever defeat in a domestic game in the history of the Premier Soccer League which started in 1996.

Several Chiefs players underperformed on the day as the team registered its second loss of the current campaign.

GOAL runs the rule over the individual performances of Amakhosi players.

  • Bruce Bvuma, Kaizer Chiefs, March 2022

    Bruce Bvuma - 3/10

    Awful performance by Amakhosi's number one keeper.

    Bvuma couldn't do much about Gaston Sirino's opening goal, then the goals kept flying past him and he was helpless. He faced four shots which all hit the back of the net.

  • Njabulo Blom, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Njabulo Blom - 4/10

    Struggled defensively and didn't offer much going forward.

    Blom was caught out of possession a few times and gave the ball away cheaply. He was nowhere to be seen when Abubeker Nassir netted the fourth goal.

  • Reeve Frosler, Kaizer Chiefs, April 2022

    Reeve Frosler - 6.5/10

    Lively in the left flank and he was solid defensively.

    Frosler started well making some promising overlapping runs and he missed a sitter after the restart. One of Chiefs' few better performers.

  • Siyabonga Ngezana, Kaizer Chiefs, March 2022

    Siyabonga Ngezana - 2/10

    Worst ever performance in his career.

    Ngenzana looked out of sorts against Sundowns' explosive attack - he was to blame for the first two goals that Chiefs conceded. Unsurprisingly, substituted at half-time.

  • Zitha Kwinika, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Zitha Kwinika - 5.5/10

    Played much better than his partner Ngezana.

    Kwinika positioned himself well at times and made some crucial clearances. His last ditch block denied Peter Shalulile what could have been the fifth goal for Downs.

  • Yusuf Maart Kaizer Chiefs

    Yusuf Maart- 6.5/10

    A hard worker in midfield.

    Maart played the entire 90 minutes and put in a good, energetic display. He has quickly established himself as Chiefs' best midfielder after joining the team from Sekhukhune United two months ago.

  • Cole Alexander Kaizer Chiefs Andre de Jong Royal AM

    Cole Alexander - 4.5/10

    Deployed just in front of the defence.

    Alexander failed to protect the backline as he was tormented by Teboho Mokoena and Themba Zwane. He was substituted at half-time.

  • Siyethemba Sithebe Kaizer Chiefs

    Siyethemba Sithebe - 5/10

    Failed to perform in his first big game for Chiefs.

    Sithebe was caught out of possession a few times and gave the ball away cheaply. He was substituted towards the end of the game.

  • Dillon Solomons, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Dillon Solomons - 5/10

    Mixed bag performance.

    Solomons made a few forward runs which created a few problems for the Downs defence in the first-half. He became quiet after the restart.

  • Keagan Dolly, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Keagan Dolly - 5/10

    Infective in the final third.

    Dolly's heavy touches let him down as he could not take a shot toward goal. He was substituted towards the end of the game as Chiefs looked to grab a consolation goal.

  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2022

    Khama Billiat - 5.5/10

    Not at his best on the day.

    However, Billiat did well to use his pace to run in behind the defence on a couple of occasions. His poorly taken penalty was saved by goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

  • Kgaogelo Sekgota of Kaizer Chiefs

    Kgaogelo Sekgota - 6.5/10

    Came on at half-time and he became a constant threat to Sundowns' defence due to his blistering speed which saw Chiefs being awarded a penalty after he was fouled in the box.

  • Njabulo Ngcobo Kaizer Chiefs 2022.

    Njabulo Ngezana 5.5/10

    Replaced Ngezana and he played well compared to his teammate, but he should have done better to stop Nassir from scoring.

  • Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Kaizer Chiefs, April 2022

    Nkosingiphile Ngcobo - 5.5/10

    Introduced in the 72nd minute and he combined well with his teammates, but he spent most of his time in Chiefs' half without creating chances for his teammates.

  • Sabelo Radebe, Kaizer Chiefs, August 2021

    Sabelo Radebe - 5/10

    Struggled against Downs' speed and looked a few yards off the pace having been introduced in the 77th minute.
