Chelsea clashed heads with Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they focused on collecting a good result on their travels. The Blues failed to finish off their chances in the first half and were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

The West London outfit began the second half well and managed to get their noses ahead at the hour mark when Marcos Alonso scored with a low strike. However, their lead lasted for just two minutes as Cristiano Ronaldo scored the leveler with a good strike. The match ended with Chelsea being held to a 1-1 draw in Manchester.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player fared during the clash against Man United.

GK: Edouard Mendy – 6/10

The Blues custodian made a couple of decent saves during the game but will be disappointed after conceding a goal in the second half.

CB: Cesar Azpilicueta – 7/10

He won a couple of aerial duels and managed to win possession back a few times for his side.

CB: Thiago Silva – 6.5/10

The Brazilian centre-back made two important defensive contributions but failed to keep a clean sheet tonight.

CB: Antonio Rudiger – 6/10

He cleared his lines when needed and was a threat at the other end as well.

RM: Reece James – 8.5/10

James gave a good account of himself in both halves but was unfortunate to hit the crossbar.

CM: Jorginho – 7/10

The Italy international anchored the midfield really well and had a couple of lively moments in the Man United half.

CM: N’Golo Kante – 7.5/10

He tried his best to protect his teammates at the back and was quite creative with the ball in the final third.

LM: Marcos Alonso – 7.5/10

The Spanish talent caused a lot of problems for the opposition defenders and scored Chelsea’s only goal of the game at the hour mark.

CAM: Mason Mount – 6.5/10

Mount created a few inviting chances for his teammates but never threatened the Man United goal.

ST: Timo Werner – 6/10

He was mostly quiet during the game and hardly got a sniff at goal.

ST: Kai Havertz – 7/10

Havertz was a constant menace in the final third and has got an assist to show for his efforts.

Substitutes:

ST: Romelu Lukaku – 6/10

He struggled to influence the game in the opponent’s half.

ST: Christian Pulisic – 6/10

Pulisic made one good run with the ball.

CM: Ruben Loftus-Cheek – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the game.
