Chelsea entertained Liverpool at Stamford Bridge earlier this afternoon as they looked to earn a good result at home in the Premier League. The Blues made a slow start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the 18th minute when Luis Diaz scored with a tidy finish. However, Axel Disasi equalised for Chelsea in the 37th minute with a scrappy finish from close range. Both sides went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.
The Blues pushed on in search of the winning goal in the second half but were held to a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player fared during the clash against the Reds.
GK: Robert Sanchez – 6/10
Sanchez won’t be happy about conceding an early goal. However, he didn’t have to make a save today.
CB: Axel Disasi – 7.5/10
He defended his own penalty area with conviction and managed to score the all-important equaliser for Chelsea in the first half.
CB: Thiago Silva – 7/10
Silva gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and made one good chance going forward.
CB: Levi Colwill – 7/10
He was a positive influence in both halves and was accuarate with his passing.
RM: Reece James – 6.5/10
James managed to engineer a couple of decent chances from the right flank.
CM: Enzo Fernandez – 7/10
The Argentine sensation was a good presence on the ball and worked hard defensively as well.
CM: Conor Gallagher – 6.5/10
He anchored the midfield well but lacked quality going forward.
LM: Ben Chilwell – 7/10
Chilwell caused a lot of headaches for the Liverpool defenders with his running and has got an assist to show for his efforts.
RAM: Raheem Sterling – 6.5/10
Sterling made one good chance in the final third but never looked like he would score.
LAM: Carney Chukwuemeka – 6/10
Chukwuemeka struggled to get a foothold in the game and did well to last 80 minutes.
ST: Nicolas Jackson – 6.5/10
He was always willing to have a strike at goal but failed to get his name on the scoresheet.
RM: Malo Gusto – 6/10
Gusto’s impact on the game was minimal.
RAM: Mykhailo Mudryk – N/A
LM: Ian Maatsen – N/A
