PremierLeague-News.Com - Here are our player ratings from the Blues' 0-0 draw with Man Utd at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Edouard Mendy Good save on the hour mark to deny Scott McTominay. Slightly hairy moment after the break when he bobbled James' cross and almost made a meal of Fernandes' effort from distance. But, it's another clean sheet. 7 Callum Hudson-Odoi Earlier in the season he might have had a handball given against him and a penalty after a VAR check. But was arguably Chelsea’s best player in the first half, a fine delivery should have been converted by Giroud. Surprisingly hooked at half time for James. 6 Antonio Rudiger Very commanding presence at the back once again. His long-range passing was very accurate throughout the game. 7 Cesar Azpilicueta Made a couple of big clearing headers late in the first half to halt United’s progress. Comfortable up against Rashford throghout. 7 Andreas Christensen Dealt with the threat of Mason Greenwood throughout and aside from one shot on goal, marked the United attacker out of the game. Good again in the absence of Thiago Silva. 7 Read More Related Articles Tottenham fans issue Eric Dier and Callum Hudson-Odoi comparison after Chelsea penalty call Ben Chilwell Didn’t look confident with the ball at his feet but wasn’t tested defensively by Dan James much in the first half. Untested defensively after the break but didn't get forward much either. 6 N’Golo Kante Showed exactly why he was brought into the team with a vital interception on Rashford despite getting a shove in the back. A bundle of energy again and some timely interceptions but his precision in the final third was lacking.

. 8 Mateo Kovacic The game seemed to bypass the midfielder in the first half despite the majority of the action taking place in that congested part of the pitch. Couldn't get the better of McTominay and Fred throughout. 6

Mason Mount Passing accuracy was well off in the first half and struggled to get the better of Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Improved after half time and was one of the Blues' better players in an attacking sense. 7 Hakim Ziyech Played far more centrally, almost as a number ten, rather than on the wing where he accustomed to but was very poor in the first half as he gave the ball away far too many times and copped an earful from his head coach. Quiet after the break as well, not a good day for the Moroccan. 5 Olivier Giroud Might have done better with a headed chance from Hudson-Odoi’s sublime cross but ended up barrelling into the goalpost instead. United dealt with him comfortably throughout and didn’t have the impact of midweek. 6
Substitutes Reece James (for Hudson-Odoi, 46’) Almost made an instant impact but saw his shot blocked superbly by Luke Shaw. Gets caught too high up the pitch at times as a wing-back. One cross was almost perfect for Werner. 6 Christian Pulisic (for Giroud, 65’) Played in a false nine but didn’t look comfortable with it. 5 Timo Werner (for Ziyech, 77’) Seemed to be on the end of a tongue-lashing more than once from Tuchel after coming on. No rating.
