Here we have with us the Chelsea Player Ratings after their frustrating draw against Manchester United. The game featured the Blues taking on the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge during their Premier League clash on Sunday. It was one of the most decisive fixtures of the weekend, as the game ended in a close 1-1 draw.

As Thomas Tuchel’s side failed to secure the win, Chelsea is still at the top with 30 points but the Blues are now just one point ahead of second-placed Manchester City in the title race. On the other hand, Manchester United sits at 8th place, tying their points with Brighton and Leicester.

Another dominating performance by Chelsea failed to reward them with more points. With 68% possession and 10 total shots in the first half, the team was unlucky to go into halftime without a lead. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t start for Manchester United against Thomas Tuchel’s side.

A costly mistake by Jorginho in the second half put Jadon Sancho one-on-one with Edouard Mendy, who managed to put it past the goalkeeper. However, the Italian redeemed himself with a perfectly placed penalty to equalize the score. A great last chance for Chelsea was blown away by Antonio Rudiger as the game ended in a draw.

Chelsea player ratings against Manchester United:

Edouard Mendy (GK) (6.5): Was not tested much. Conceded one goal. Made a huge mistake but United failed to capitalize.

Trevoh Chalobah (RCB) (7.5): Stood his ground. Cleared lines well. Overall solid at the back.

Thiago Silva (CB) (9): Leader at the back. Experience truly shown as he made no errors throughout the game. Won the penalty.

Antonio Rudiger (LCB) (7.5): Defensively solid and made crucial tackles. Hit the bar once and blew away the final chance for the team. Unlucky to not get a goal.

Reece James (RWB) (7): Contrary to his current form, the player did not get many chances to attack. However, defensively very sound and composed.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CM) (7.5): Controlled and drove the midfield well. Dribbled at every opportunity to create chances.

Jorginho (CM) (6): Sloppy control proved to be costly leading to goal. Scored the team’s equalizing penalty.

Marcos Alonso (LWB) (7): Created a few chances with corners and crosses. Could have gotten an assist if Callum Hudson-Odoi had scored.

Hakim Ziyech (RAM) (7): Created a few chances and controlled ball well.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (LAM) (6.5): Quite wasteful throughout the game.

Timo Werner (ST) (6.5): Didn’t get space or chance to do much. Missed a crucial chance late in the game.

Substitutes:

Christian Pulisic (ST) (6.5): Tried to create runs and chances. Set Rudiger with a great cross in the end who failed to score.

Mason Mount (CAM) (6): Did not do much to influence the game.

Romelu Lukaku (CB) (5): Did not get a chance to do much.
