Super Sunday’s big game was far from super fun this weekend as Arsenal and Chelsea played out a sleep-inducing goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium.
Chants of “boring, boring Chelsea” rang around the ground at full time, but, the dull draw delighted Jose Mourinho’s men, who are now dead certs to win their first Premier League title since 2010.
Here’s how the Blues rated…

Twitter goes mad at Chelsea-dominated PFA Team of the Year: Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho lucky to get in, claim angry Blues fans, who think six is not enough!
Thibaut Courtois – 6/10
Commanded his box well. Didn’t have to make many saves to keep his third consecutive Premier League clean sheet.
Branislav Ivanovic – 6/10
Slightly fortunate not to get booked, having spent a significant portion of the first half kicking his opponents, but a decent performance nevertheless. Robust as ever.
John Terry – 7.5/10
Orchestrated another resolute Chelsea defensive display. The former England captain takes a lot of pride in keeping shutouts and his commitment to the cause is infectious.
Gary Cahill – 7/10
Cahill assisted Terry gamely in keeping Arsenal at bay.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 7.5/10
Having missed out on a place in the Premier League Team of the Year, Azpilicueta showed just why many were outraged at his omission. He produced yet another above-average display. Has he ever played badly?
Nemanja Matic – 7.5/10
Matic won today. Unfortunately, as a consequence, football lost. The Serbian international bossed the midfield and did all he could to keep the game tight, as Chelsea played for a 0-0.
