Chelsea clashed heads with Liverpool at Anfield earlier this evening as they looked to secure their third win in three matches. Kai Havertz opened the scoreline for the visitors from a set-piece situation to put his side in the lead after 22 minutes. However, Mohamed Salah converted from the spot deep into the first half to make it 1-1.
Despite being down to ten men, the Blues defended really well in the second half to hold on to a point.
Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player fared during the match against the Reds.
Chelsea Players Rated In Draw Vs Liverpool
Edouard Mendy 8
The Senegalese shot-stopper pulled off some amazing saves in the second half to secure a point for his side.
Cesar Azpilicueta 9
The skipper toiled hard to keep the entire backline in shape after Chelsea went down to ten men. He made numerous last-ditch tackles and interceptions to stop the Liverpool frontmen from finding the back of the net.
Andreas Christensen 8.5
The Danish centre-back won some crucial headers and made several important challenges to keep things tidy at the back.
Antonio Rudiger 9
The German defender was a rock at the heart of Chelsea’s defence. He read the game exceptionally well on a couple of situations, and it’d be an understatement to say that the Blues wouldn’t have been able to hold on to a point if it wasn’t for his colossal work rate.
Marcos Alonso 8
Alonso made some important interceptions down the left-flank to deprive Mohamed Salah of goal-scoring opportunities.
Reece James 5
While I agree with the penalty decision, maybe the red card was a bit harsh.
Nonetheless, he did well to set up Kai Havertz’s goal from a set-piece situation.
N’Golo Kante 6
The Frenchman worked tirelessly at the centre of the park in the first forty-five minutes to take pressure off Chelsea’s backline.
The Italian international dropped deep in the second half to shield his side’s back four, and his ball distribution was quite impressive as well.
Mason Mount 6.5
The Englishman missed a golden opportunity to double his side’s lead in the first half. He didn’t see too much of the ball in the second forty-five minutes.
Kai Havertz 7
The German international scored the opener from a set-piece situation, but he was replaced with Thiago Silva at the half-time mark.
Romelu Lukaku 6
The former Inter striker was deprived of services throughout the ninety minutes.
