Kepa Arrizabalaga: Kept a clean sheet and made some good stops to deny city from scoring . His distribution was good and although he made a mistake late on, he redeemed himself by making a spectacular save.
Cesar Azpilicueta : A commanding performance from our captain who was fantastic at the right back position . He was not troubled much by Sane and also made many tackles and blocks . A captain’s performance .
Antonio Rudiger : He helped the team keep a clean sheet and was very good defensively. His passing was top notch too .
David Luiz: A man of the match performance from the Brazilian . He was very good defensively , his distribution was nice and his performance was capped off with a goal that ensured the win .
Marcos Alonso : Not a great night for alonso although the team kept a clean sheet . He has been very poor in the last couple of weeks and needs to be better if he doesn’t want to lose the left back position to emerson.
Jorginho : His passing ability was very important against guardiola’s team . He did his job well and also made a tactical foul for the team which earned him a yellow card .
Kante : Kante was running all around the pitch , winning balls , making tackles and in this game scoring a goal . His goal at the closing stages of the first half gave chelsea the lead . He once lost the ball to sterling and won the ball back himself .
Kovacic: Did not contribute to the team in the attacking sense but made the team solid from midfield. He had to be taken off for Barkley after he suffered from a muscular injury .
Pedro : It was a very energetic performance from him . He tracked back well and also it was his great pass to willian which helped for the first goal.
Willian : Pressed well and his pace was always handy . Did not get involved directly in the goals . He was replaced by loftus cheek .
Hazard : Was deployed as a false nine for the first time under sarri . He was not spectacular but his hold up play was good . He also got assists for both of the chelsea goals . His pass to set up kante was moment of magic . Was replaced by Giroud late on .
