PremierLeague-News.Com - Here is how we rated the Blues as players as they were beaten in the FA Cup final by Leicester City
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Kepa Arrizablaga Had nothing to do in the first half but still earned a earful from Tuchel for a poor clearance. No keeper could do anything with Tielemans' winner. 6 Reece James Tuchel fooled us all and played James as a right centre half and performed very well. Composed on the ball when he needed to be, used his pace well up against Vardy. Chelsea's best player on the day. 8 Cesar Azpilicueta Had the best chance of the opening half hour but mistimed his header from a couple of yards out. Did OK but took a bang to the head in the second half and was subbed off. 6 Thiago Silva No easy feat marshalling Jamie Vardy and did so well, aside from one moment in first half injury time where he lost the striker but Vardy headed wide. Steady at the back as always. 7 Read More Related Articles Leicester suffer major injury scare ahead of Chelsea clash as Brendan Rodgers' gamble backfires Antonio Rudiger Some slack passes early doors put his teammates in trouble and conceded some silly fouls as well. Why he insists on shooting from 30 yards out, only he knows. 6 Marcos Alonso Didn’t really figure much at all in the opening 45 as Chelsea played very much through the middle. Had the game's first effort on target in the 53rd minute but that was about it. 6 Jorginho Ayoze Perez of Leicester City is challenged by Jorginho of Chelsea (Image: Kirsty Wigglesworth - Pool/Getty Images) Seemed determined to make up for his mistake on Wednesday by snapping into tackles. His distrubtion was good in the first half but poor in the second, he couldn't get Chelsea ticking over and, as a result, they struggled after half time.

. Buzzed everywhere, made interceptions, broke up attacks. Dug in after the break and tried to rally his teammates with his own energy, they just didn't respond. 7 Mason Mount Buzzed around in the pockets of space between Leicester’s defence and midfield and anything good from Chelsea came through him. Very, very quiet in the second half. No coincidence that Chelsea were not at their best when he struggled to be involved. 7
Thomas Tuchel reveals why he picked Marcos Alonso ahead of Ben Chilwell for Chelsea FA Cup final
Hakim Ziyech Delivery from corners was not good enough in the first half, bordering on rubbish. Not better in the second half either, very poor throughout. 5 Timo Werner Looked constantly like he could expose Leicester’s high line but some of his decision making was really poor. Booked in the first half as frustrations got the better of him. Could have been a gamechanger, but wasn't. 6
Substitutions Christian Pulisic (for Ziyech, 68') Didn't have much impact at all. 5 Ben Chilwell (for Alonso, 68') Had a goal so harshly ruled out by VAR for offside, maybe his sleeve was off? Had the most impact of any sub. 6 Kai Havertz (for Jorginho, 75') No rating. Callum Hudson-Odoi (for Azpilicueta, 75') No rating Olivier Giroud (for Werner, 81') Had a few crosses swung his way but didn't make anything of them.
