After Chelsea’s terrible home defeat to Leicester, we mark the players.
Made a bad handling error that almost gave Leicester a second. Did make a fantastic save in the first half.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 5
Not much threat going forward. Some crosses were pretty aimless or he just passed backwards.
Antonio Rudiger: 5
He looked tired, perhaps after playing in mid-week. Missed a great chance to equalize and was stranded in no-man’s land for Leicester’s goal.
David Luiz: 7
His long passing is absolutely breathtaking at times. He can sometimes over do them though. Defending is good at the moment.
Marcos Alonso: 5
An improvement on the last few games. Still offering next to nothing going forward.
Back to his absolute best in the first half before he lost it a bit in the second when he lost the ball repeatedly.
N’Golo Kante: 5
Looks confused and lacking in confidence when he has the ball in the opponents half, especially in space.
Mateo Kovacic: 6
Kante should have been the man to be replaced after an hour. Chelsea lose the fluidity of play when the Croat is not playing.
A poor mark because of a seriously bad second half when nothing he did worked despite great effort.
Anonymous in attack. Something that is happening too often. Hudson-Odoi must wonder what why Willian gets picked every game.
Eden Hazard: 7
Carried the attack and looked exhausted as a result. Faded from the game after Chelsea took off Kovacic and started punting long balls to Giroud.
