Chelsea Leicester, Six Sports

Let’s have a look at how the players fared for both the clubs.

Chelsea 0-1 Leicester : Chelsea Player Ratings

Kepa Arrizabalaga (5/10) – He failed to deliver yet again in such a big match. However, the Spaniard had to face only a single attempt on goal, which ultimately was the goal itself. But, conceding that goal proved costly for Chelsea against Leicester City.

Reece James (7.5/10) – He accepted an unusual role to be in the back three. Thus, he wasn’t proving to be a threat for the away side. But, he was doing well in defence. James was indeed the best player for the Blues.

Thiago Silva (6/10) – He was rock solid in defence and was successful in keeping Jamie Vardy away from goal.

Cesar Azpilicueta (6/10) – The skipper was doing well balancing the attack and the defense.

Antonio Rudiger (5.5/10) – He wasted a lot of possession by just shooting from way out. However, he was excellent in defence.

Jorginho (5.5/10) – He wasn’t having a good game as most of the opponents easily penetrated the midfield.

N’Golo Kante (7/10) – He was fulfilling his typical role of winning the ball back from the opposition and creating some attacking opportunities.

Marcos Alonso (6/10) – The Spaniard wasn’t at his best and was replaced by Chilwell as the game progressed.

Hakim Ziyech (5.5/10) – The forward was lacking creativity when it was needed the most. Also, he couldn’t take advantage of a wonderful flick pass from Mount.

Mason Mount (5.5/10) – A brilliant effort in the 87th minute but was kept out of goal by the opponent goalkeeper. He deserved better.

Timo Werner (4/10) – He was putting up another sub-par performance. His silly miss equally frustrated the head coach.

Substitutes:

Ben Chilwell (6/10) – He almost got two goals against his former club but luck was not favoring him.

Other subs like Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud, Kai Havertz, and Callum Hudson Odoi had very little time left to inspire the team for an equalizer.

Leicester City Player Ratings

Kasper Schmeichel (8/10) – The skipper was in his top form and was indeed the Man of the Match. He forced some brilliant saves to keep the Chelsea attackers at bay.

Caglar Soyuncu (7.5/10) – The Turkish defender was equally brilliant as the defense was looking lively. He put up some no-nonsense defending.

Johny Evans (6/10) – Unfortunately he had an injury in the first half and had to be substituted. It would be a big blow for the club if he is injured for the next match.

Wesley Fofana (7/10) – Another key player for the rock-solid display for the Foxes.

Thomas (6.5/10) – He was equally brilliant in the defense and provided the crucial assist paving way for the only goal of the match.

Timothy Castagne (5.5/10) – He was a bit off-focus in the game but still provided some mouthwatering passes.

Wilfred Ndidi (6/10) – A decent performance from him defensively.

Youri Tielemans (7.5/10) – The goal defines his quality of threat that he posed on the opponent’s defense. There couldn’t be a better way of winning the FA Cup!

Ayoze Perez (5.5/10) – He didn’t have to contribute much to the attacking department. But still, he was the main man to initiate the pressing that eventually led to the goal.

Kelechi Iheanacho (4.5/10) – A disappointing match for the record goalscorer for the Leicester club.

Jamie Vardy (5/10) – He was also kept silent by the Blues defense.

Substitutes:

Marc Albrighton (6.5/10) – He did put up an excellent show replacing Johny Evans. Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, and James Maddison had very little game time and hence cannot be rated.
