PLAYERS RATINGS: Chelsea 3-4 (0-0) Man City

A  good match for Chelsea during the original and extra time, as they deserved to win. The Blues played the Italian way and defended and didn’t have any shot on target, which didn’t cause a great threat to Manchester City.

In the extra time, the main scene was Kepa refusing to obey Maurizio Sarri’s order to leave and get replaced by Willy Caballero. This wasn’t in Kepa’s favor who conceded just to one penalty and was close to blocking Aguero’s penalty. This could be his last match for Chelsea.

Finally, Chelsea have lost in penalty shootout 3-4 after Jorginho and David Luiz missed their penalties.
