Aayush Khanal

Kepa Arrizabalaga : Had one save to make and made it , his distribution was very good . A good game for him .

Cesar Azpilicueta : Anderson troubled Azpilicueta few times but recovered well and helped to keep a clean sheet .Attacking wise was not good enough .

Antonio Rudiger : Was our most impressive defender as he has been in these early parts of the season . Got injured but hopefully not a long term injury .

David Luiz :Did not have the greatest of games but was effective enough .

Marcos Alonso : No over lapping runs while going forward and lost Yarmolenko which almost led to a goal (although he was offside) but managed to keep a clean sheet . Not one of his best days .

Jorginho : Attempted about 180 passes and some long balls over the defenders head were good but didn’t have the killer ball . Also his forward passes to the striker were intercepted many times which was frustrating to watch .

Kante : There are many things kante can do in a football pitch but shooting is not one of his strengths . Plays further forward in a clearly uncomfortable role and hence we cant blame him for no attacking output .

Kovacic : Not one of his best games too . Was replaced by barkley with about 10 minutes to go .

Hazard : His decision making was surprisingly poor and tried to pass when he had to shoot .Worrying thing is if hazard doesn’t click Chelsea don’t click.

Willian : Was our best player probably although not good enough . His sprint to set up kante was his best moment of the game and wasting a chance at the end his worst .

Giroud : Was ineffective the whole game and was replaced by Morata around the hour mark .

Substitutes :

Morata : Came on for Giroud at about 65 minutes and almost scored with his first and second touches , but nothing happened .

Cahill: Came on for rudiger after his injury , was untroubled defensively .

Barkley : Came on for jorginho and had one shot which Fabianski saved easily .
