Here are all the players ratings for Chelsea Vs Crystal Palace
The Chelsea goalkeeper was relatively untroubled for large parts of the game as Crystal Palace barely created clear cut openings but Mendy commanded his area well and was always alert to every possible danger.
The French defender played at left-back in what looked like a back four system today. He was solid defensively but the left side of Chelsea’s attack suffered due to Sarr’s offensive ineptitude.
The Frenchman actually held his own by keeping a clean sheet until his substitution in the second half
Toni Rudiger was at his usual best against Crystal Palace tonight. The German defender did earn his clean sheet as he was a constant menace to Crystal Palace’s attacking players and he could have even scored a screamer in the first half had it not your Vincente Guaita’s goalkeeping prowess.
The veteran Brazilian looked assured as usual tonight and he constantly showed leadership to help the Chelsea defence keep a clean sheet.
The young Dane played at the right hand side of what looked like back four tonight and he held his own and didn’t put a foot wrong throughout the 90. Also played a crucial part in the clean sheet.
The Italian maestro partnered Kanté in Chelsea’s midfield pivot tonight and he was specifically tasked with keeping the ball ticking as he always does but it wasn’t an easy game against a well drilled Crystal Palace midfield
Jorginho nevertheless did his primary duty as the deepest lying midfielder by protecting the Chelsea back four before being replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the second half.
The midfield general didn’t drop a midfield Masterclass tonight but he was able to hold his own before being replaced by Mateo Kovacic in the second half.
The American failed to find the net against his favourite opponent tonight but he looked electric anytime he got the ball.
The German played on the left hand side of Chelsea’s attack and he looked threatening when isolated with his man but he didn’t influence the game as much as expected.
The Belgian striker struggled against the Crystal Palace defence and he was very much a passenger for large parts of the game.
The Morrocan was Chelsea’s best player against Crystal Palace as he always looked to make something to happen and he eventually scored the tie breaker to settle the game. MAN OF THE MATCH.
The midfelder replaced Jorginho in the second half and struggled a bit but was able to hold his own for the rest of the game.
The Croat replaced Kanté in midfield and also held his own until the end of the game
The Spaniard replaced Malang Sarr at left-back and made a huge difference by providing the assist for Hakim Ziyech’s winner.
