Chelsea entertained Liverpool at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a good result on their travels in the Premier League. The Blues made a decent start to the game but could only manage to go into the half-time interval with a goalless scoreline.

The two teams canceled each other out in the second half as Chelsea were held to a lackluster 0-0 draw in front of their home fans.

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

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7/10

The Spanish keeper made a few solid saves at the back and secured an important clean sheet at home.

CB: Wesley Fofana – 8/10

He earned the ball back multiple times during the game and even cleared the danger when required.

CB: Kalidou Koulibaly – 7.5/10

Koulibaly didn’t do much wrong at the back and deserves credit for restricting the opposition from scoring a goal tonight.

CB: Marc Cucurella – 7/10

Cucurella did his fair share of defending inside his half but lacked quality going forward.

RM: Reece James – 7.5/10

James made a few driving runs with the ball but was a bit underwhelming defensively.

CM: N’Golo Kante – 7.5/10

The France international began the game well and was arguably Chelsea’s best player on the pitch in the first half.

CM: Enzo Fernandez – 6.5/10

He managed to impress at times at both ends of the pitch but has got nothing to show for his efforts.

CM: Mateo Kovacic – 6.5/10

Kovacic was lively in the opponent’s half but wasted a glorious chance to find the back of the net.

LM: Ben Chilwell – 7/10

Chilwell created three good chances for his teammates from the left flank.

ST: Kai Havertz – 6/10

He was a handful for the Liverpool defenders but didn’t have his shooting boots on tonight.

ST: Joao Felix – 7/10

His pace caused a few problems for the opposition but struggled to finish off his chances.


CM: Conor Gallagher – 6/10

He added some energy to Chelsea’s midfield.

LW: Mykhailo Mudryk – 6/10

Mudryk produced a nice cameo off the bench.

ST: Raheem Sterling – N/A

He hardly had any time to make an impact.
