CM) Cesc Fabregas, 5
Wasn’t at his best, and as a result the whole of the Blues’ attack was more disjointed than usual.
CM) Nemanja Matic, 3
His red card likely cost them the victory. However bad a tackle is you cannot react like that.
CAM) Oscar, 5
Similarly to Fabregas the Brazilian was unable to help break down the Claret’s defence as well as he usually does.
LAM) Eden Hazard, 5
Needs to grab these games by the scruff of their necks if he wants to be considered the best in the Premier League.
RAM) Juan Cuadrado, 6
Only his second start for the Stamford Bridge outfit, and isn’t linking up with teammates as well as he might.
