Blues snatch crucial three points against the Toffees…
Chelsea player ratings
- 01 Petr Cech – 6
Another clean-sheet for the Czech stopper, who made an especially good save in the first half. The Blues have only conceded 21 goals all Premier League season.
- 02 Branislav Ivanovic – 6
The Serbian dealt with the threat of Leighton Baines’s attacking bursts up the left flank well, and also was unlucky not to score with a sizzling shot in the first half.
- 24 Gary Cahill – 7
Cahill was as solid as ever against the Toffees, and showed everyone why he’s a first-choice starter for both Chelsea and England.
- 26 John Terry – 8
Terry grabbed his side what could be a vital goal in the race for the Premier League title, when he popped up in injury time, sneaking the ball in from a Chelsea set-piece.
- 28 Cesar Azpilicueta – 6
Failed to get forward and help in attack, but largely dealt with the dangerous Kevin Mirallas effectively.
