Lampard and Oscar have particularly poor nights for the Blues…

Chelsea player ratings:
- 01 Cech – 6
Not really at fault for the goal, and made a super save in the first half.
- 02 Ivanovic – 5
The normally reliable defender had a shocker.
- 28 Azpilicueta – 5
Caught out of position on regular occasions.
- 12 Mikel – 5
His job is to protect the back four, which he did for most of the time, but his passing was sloppy.
- 24 Cahill – 6
Was strong in the air, and probably the most impressive performer in Chelsea’s backline. On this form, he will expect to retain his place in the starting lineup ahead of David Luiz.
- 26 Terry – 6
Dealt with the powerful Streller well, and put in one customary last ditch tackle, too.
- 07 Ramires – 6
Did most of the midfield running for Chelsea, and worked extremely hard; especially in the first-half. Did get booked for a stupid challenge in the second, however.
- 08 Lampard – 5
Away from home in Europe when he can’t get forward as often as he would like, it’s almost worth starting the veteran from the bench. Was totally overran by Basel’s dynamic midfield.
- 29 Eto’o (Torres – 42′ ) – 5 & 7
Posed barely no threat before an injury forced himself. Torres, his replacement, was far livelier, and will no doubt start the Premier League fixture at the weekend.
- 11 Oscar (Hazard – 55′ ) – 4 & 6
Anonymous in the first half. His Belgian replacement offered more pace and thrust in attack, but failed to create a chance of note.
- 22 Willian (De Bruyne – 86′ ) 6 & n/a
Showed nice touches (as he always does) but failed to really implement himself on the game.
