- 08 Lampard – 6
Bundled a goal in at the start of the second half, but struggled to run the game as he would have liked with Lee Cattermole constantly harrying him.
- 12 Mikel – 6
The Nigerian was barely noticeable, as Sunderland sat back deep and let Chelsea have the ball – but once they came alive following their equaliser, Mikel was actually an important destructive influence in the middle.
- 15 De Bruyne – 5
Totally ineffective. Wasn’t prepared to run at the opposition, and looked bereft of ideas in the final third. This could be well his last game for the Blues.
