Chelsea entertained Manchester United at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to grind out a win at home. The Blues struggled to create chances in the first half and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Jorginho finally broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 87th minute. Casemiro scored an equaliser for Man United in injury time with a good header as the contest ended 1-1 with Graham Potter’s men being held to a draw in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the match against the Red Devils.

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7/10

The Spanish keeper made a lot of important saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding such a late goal.

CB: Trevoh Chalobah – 7/10

Chalobah gave a good account of himself at the back and was a threat going forward.

CB: Thiago Silva – 6.5/10

The Brazilian defender won a couple of aerial duels and cleared the danger when needed.

CB: Marc Cucurella – 6.5/10

The Spaniard made a couple of crucial clearances but could last only 35 minutes.

RM: Cesar Azpilicueta – 6/10

Azpilicueta earned the ball back twice but offered very little in the final third.

CM: Jorginho – 7/10

The Italy international got stuck in with some solid tackles and scored a late penalty which almost gave his team all three points.

CM: Ruben Loftus-Cheek – 6.5/10

He protected his backline well but offered very little in the Man United half.

LM: Ben Chilwell – 6.5/10

Chilwell did his fair share of defending but his impact was minimal in the final third.

RAM: Mason Mount – 6.5/10

He had a few bright moments in the opponent’s half but didn’t do enough to get his name on the scoresheet.

LAM: Raheem Sterling – 6/10

Sterling struggled to get going in the final third and produced a toothless display offensively this evening.

ST: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 6.5/10

The Gabon striker made two good runs with the ball but lacked quality in front of the Man United goal.

Substitutes:

CM: Mateo Kovacic – 6/10

He added some control to Chelsea’s midfield and made one decent chance from midfield.

LAM: Christian Pulisic – 6/10

Pulisic struggled to get into the flow of the game.

CM: Carney Chukwuemeka – 6/10

He made one crucial clearance at the back.

ST: Armando Broja – 6/10

Broja added some pace to Potter’s attack.
