(Video) Goal! Chelsea 1-1 Manchester City: David Silva Equalises Almost Immediately But What Was Thibaut Courtois Up To?
The Londoner’s exhausting 120 minutes in the Capital One Cup semi-final against Liverpool looked to have taken their toll as Chelsea held on for the point in the second half and struggled to put up a fight going forward.
However, Jose Mourinho will be the happier coach with the result as it leaves City still five points behind the table topping Blues.
Here’s how we thought Chelsea fared in this key Premier League clash:
GK: Thibaut Courtois – 5
The Belgian flapped on a cross that allowed Aguero the shot which led to Silva’s goal. But he looked to make amends in the second half with a number of good stops.
RB: Branislav Ivanovic – 6
Strong and robust, keeping Aguero at bay down Chelsea’s right and his great raking cross let Hazard in to make Remy’s goal.
