Kepa Arrizabalaga : His distribution was great yesterday , made a very good save to deny mane . Could have done nothing to prevent the goal . Calm and composed he played well.
Cesar Azpilicueta : He had a solid game . He nullified the threat of mane and robertson very well . Did not have much chances of going forward .
Antonio Rudiger : It was his one of the best performances in a chelsea shirt . He was a beast and that goal line clearance to deny salah capped off an incredible performance .
David Luiz : His distribution of ball was very good , created a goal scoring opportunity for Willian . Defensively he was very good and he like rudiger also cleared the ball off the line .
Marcos Alonso : Did not have the joy going forward but defensively he was mostly in the right place . Did not allow Salah much space and joy which ultimately led to salah being withdrawn.
Jorginho: Our game flows through Jorginho , he is the one who keeps chelsea ticking but defensively he was not that good yesterday .
Kante : Worked tirelessly in midfield and showed his presence of mind by taking a quick free kick that sent Hazard cleanly through on goal .
Kovacic : This was Kovacic’s finest game in a chelsea shirt so far . He got the assist for the goal and played neatly in midfield. Everytime chelsea needed to pass the ball , he was available . Was taken off to a standing ovation .
Willian : Started the game on the right and should have scored when Luiz gave an inch perfect ball over the top . Did not have a great second half and was taken off for moses .
Eden Hazard : Goal scorer and man of the match but was guilty of squandering a great opportunity when he should have made it 2-0. Opened the scoring by starting a great move and finishing smartly.
Olivier Giroud : Worked hard and held up the ball well but did not have much contribution in the game in attacking sense . Was replaced by morata .
Alvaro Morata : Came on for Giroud and did not have a chance to make much difference in the game . Held the ball really well once.
Victor Moses : Came on for Willian and added pace to the game but gave the ball away while trying to cross or cut inside.
Ross Barkley : Replaced kovacic late and did not affect the game much .
