- 12 Jon Obi Mikel – 7
Was his usual self. Mikel sat very deep in the midfield, winning balls and playing simple passes to tick play over in the centre of the park. Was more composed in possession than his midfield partner Ramires, too.
- 07 Ramires – 5
Not his usual combative self in the midfield. Ramires gave the ball away too many times, and was arguably guilty of trying to make things happen too quickly.
- 10 Juan Mata (Oscar – 53′ ) – 5
Another fairly miserable afternoon for the Spaniard, who could leave the club this January transfer window. He was angry to be subbed off before the hour mark, and made his feelings known when he sat down on the bench. The fact Chelsea scored three goals after he came off justified the manager’s decision, however.
