Bayern Munich Player Ratings Vs Chelsea

Manuel Neuer 6/10

Manuel Neuer had a disappointing evening, looking nervy, at times, which is, of course, not synonymous with the German international. He was culpable for the only goal Bayern Munich conceded in the game.

Joshua Kimmich 7/10

Joshua Kimmich showed his true quality once again even though he had to play at right-back. He was composed with the ball and provided additional defensive support to his teammates. Was taken off during the final phase of the campaign as he was in danger of missing the next game.

Jerome Boateng 7.5/10

Had to be replaced around the hour-mark after picking up a hamstring injury. The German did a good job defensively, though, keeping up with Tammy Abraham and providing the assurance at the back.

David Alaba 8/10

David Alaba’s pace and positional awareness were critical in helping Bayern properly employ the extremely high defensive line. The Austrian also impressed with his pin-point passing, thus helping his team dominate the game throughout the ninety minutes.

Alphonso Davies 8/10

Alphonso Davies showed why he is one of the fastest players in Europe with his darting runs down the left flank. He simply camped himself in the Chelsea half, at times, providing his teammates with ample offensive support. His pace was also useful in defensive phases.

Thiago Alcantara 8.5/10

Thiago ruled the show throughout the first half of the game with his expert passing and brilliant positioning sense. The Spaniard also made a host of key tackles that were essential in helping Bayern Munich dominate the proceedings. Such a strong showing should definitely make an impression amid Liverpool interest.

Leon Goretzka 8.5/10

Leon Goretzka was one of the hard-working players on the night, playing for the Bayern that had already put in an excellent shift. The midfielder was always ready to create a turnover, making it difficult for the Blues to keep hold of possession.

Ivan Perisic 7.5/10

Ivan Perisic was not the most active Bayern Munich attackers on the night. However, he was always a goal threat and it was reflected in the 24th minute when the Croat showed excellent composure to beat the ball past Willy Caballero and score the second goal. Got replaced by Philippe Coutinho later in the game.

Thomas Muller 7.5/10

Thomas Muller may have not had a flashy evening, but the German was always there to provide creative support while also making a number of clever runs to attract defenders. The ultimate Ramdeuter.

Serge Gnabry 8/10

Serge Gnabry put in a great shift, using his pace and trickery to provide a scare in the Chelsea defence. The German international was always on the lookout for that defence-threading pass before he eventually made way for Javi Martinez

Robert Lewandowski 10/10

By far the best player on the night, Robert Lewandowski extended his tally to 53 goals in all competitions this season by scoring a brace. He also registered an assist for the Tolisso goal with an exquisite cross from the far side. The Pole was simply untouchable this evening.


Niklas Sule 7.5/10

Replaced the injured Boateng during the hour-mark and integrated himself quickly with the pace of the game, despite having played no football all year. Notably had one sizzling attempt from long-range saved by Caballero.

Philippe Coutinho 7.5/10

Philippe Coutinho made quite an impact after coming on around the hour-mark. The Brazilian offered spark in the final third, utilising his box of trickery to good effect.

Corentin Tolisso 7/10

Tolisso scored the third goal to add more gloss to the Bayern scoreline. A rare appearance from the Frenchman.

Alvaro Odriozola 7/10

Replaced Kimmich during the final phase of the game and provided the assist for the final goal through a sublime cross from the right flank.

Javi Martinez N/A

A late replacement for the tiring Gnabry.
