Chelsea v Arsenal – Player Ratings

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a pretty drab 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge tonight in the Caraboa Cup semi-final first leg. Let’s see how the players rated …


Courtois 7

Apart from one decent save in the first-half was a relative spectator.

Azpilicueta 7

Solid as a rock as always.

Christensen 7

Continues to look comfortable at this level.

Rüdiger 7

Rarely tested, but did everything he was asked to do with ease.

Moses 7

Got forward really well particularly in the first-half.

Alonso 7

Went close with a couple of headers, and one shot from distance, has grown into one of the best left-backs in England.

Drinkwater 6

Still looks to be finding his feet in this Chelsea team, a few decent passes, but also a few poor ones.

Kanté 7

Covered a huge amount of ground as usual.

Fàbregas 6

Couldn’t quite manage to impact the game as you expect the classy Spaniard to do.

Hazard 7

Started sharply, although he faded as the game went on.

Morata 7

Worked hard, but seems to be suffering from a loss of confidence in front of goal.


Willian 7

Forced Ospina into a decent save from distance.

Bakayoko N/A

No impact.

Ospina 8

Looked unconvincing at times, however he still kept a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge so he gets a eight.

Chambers 7

Surprisingly solid for a change.

Mustafi 7

Struggled against Morata at times, but all in all a decent display.

Holding 7

Much like Chambers actually not that bad for once.

Bellerín 7

Had a decent battle with Alonso. Defended well but didn’t get forward as much as usual.

Maitland-Niles 7

Struggled defensively in first-half but recovered well in second period.

Xhaka 6

Passed well at times, but lucky not to be sent off after two fouls in quick succession after he was on yellow.

Wilshere 8 ( MOTM )

Best player on the pitch until he had to go off injured.

Iwobi 6

Worked hard, although was guilty of perhaps the worst ever shot on target in the history of football in second-half.

Welbeck 7

Got through a mountain of work for his team, but carried very little goal threat.

Lacazette 5

Skyed one decent chance over the bar in the first-half and made very little impact thereafter.


Sanchez 7

Buzzed around trying to create something for his side without any success.

Elneny 7

Did a decent job defensively.
