Chelsea had to settle for a point at against Burnley at Stamford Bridge. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the 1-1 draw.
Edouard Mendy: 6
Had very little to do. Was left badly exposed for Burnley’s goal.
Andreas Christensen: 5
Coasted through most of the game but was caught dozing for the Clarets equaliser.
Thiago Silva: 6
Might have done better when he headed against the post. Had that gone in there would surely have been no way back for the visitors.
Antonio Rudiger: 7
Full of confidence given his excellent form. Defended tigerishly and was eager to get forward.
Reece James: 8
Another great performance. Served up fine crosses for Kai Havertz to score and Silva to hit the woodwork.
Against the kind of rugged opponents that can sometimes cause him problems, Jorginho found plenty of space to dictate in midfield.
N’Golo Kante: 7
Typically energetic in both halves of the pitch. A welcome return.
Ben Chilwell: 6
Bright in spells, but could have closed down quicker in the build-up to the equaliser and was generally given problems by Dwight McNeil.
Ross Barkley: 7
Deployed in the number 10 role and saw plenty of the ball. Missed a good chance to scored and probably played well enough to justify being given a place but not well enough to keep it.
Callum Hudson-Odoi: 7
Lively again. Caused the Burnley defence problems, set up a chance for Havertz and went close to scoring himself.
Kai Havertz: 7
Boss Thomas Tuchel believes Havertz is a genuine number nine. He looked it when getting in between two defenders to head in the opening goal, but not when later missing a great chance to make it two.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek: 6
Didn’t make much of an impact after coming on. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic were later introduced as well.
