A terrible performance by Chelsea and couldn’t maintain a clean sheet for the first time since four matches at home, Stamford Bridge, after the defensive issues and bad performance.
Chelsea didn’t take advantage of Manchester United’s bad result in against Tottenham to be in the second place, but the Blues have fallen against a team that they should have easily won against due to several mistakes and a lot of players not concentrating. Today almost only Hazard, Kante, and Azpilicueta were giving something, the others were missing.
We will rate our players after every match, here are Chelsea Insider players ratings:
Cortouis: Made some good saves, can’t do much for the first goal. 5/10
Azpilicueta: Was okay, not at fault for the first goal as well. 5/10
Cahill: Wasn’t marking Wilson well before scoring the first goal, was able to do better. Made several mistakes. 3/10
Christensen: Left injured in the middle of the first half. N/A
Alonso: Tried to pass the ball, but couldn’t do much. 6/10
Zappacosta: His side was so quiet, didn’t impress at all. Moses had to play. 4/10
Bakayoko: No value added to the team, not sure why Conte keeps on playing him. 3/10
Kante: Doing his best, as usual. From the very few players who maintain their top form and give their best. 6/10
Barkley: Not in his top form as well. 5/10
Pedro: Made some crosses, but wasn’t so dangerous. Tried to shot sometimes though but he’s always quick in taking decisions, which isn’t always good. 6/10
Hazard: As usual, trying but can’t do everything alone, but not in his best day as well. 6/10
Fabregas: Had to start over Bakayoko or Barkley. 5/10
Hudson-Odoi: Can’t really change games, especially in such situations and he is young. 5/10
Man of the match: None of Chelsea players for sure. Awful performance and match at home.
Antonio Conte (manager): What’s happening with Chelsea? why losing at home against a team that is fighting relegation and Chelsea can’t even score once. 3/10
