Branislav Ivanovic – 7/10
The best of Chelsea’s defenders on the day, Branislav Ivanovic showed ambition going forward and typical strength and power at the back.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 6/10
Cesar Azpilicueta has performed brilliantly against a number of the very best attacking midfielders in the Premier League this season, but often struggled to deal with Jason Puncheon today.
John Terry – 5/10
John Terry looked rattled by Crystal Palace’s strong committed approach, and even though the Eagles didn’t create a huge amount of chances, the Blues skipper gave them a helping hand with an own goal.
Gary Cahill – 7/10
Gary Cahill looked far more assured than his central defensive partner at the back, and restricted Crystal Palace to limited chances where he could.
