Everton 0-0 Chelsea – Player Ratings

Sam Allardcyhe’s Everton side defended determinedly to hold Premier League Champions to a scoreless draw at Goodison Park earlier today. Let’s see how the players rated …


Pickford 8 ( MOTM )

Made a string of decent saves and commanded his area superbly.

Kenny 7 

Chelsea attacked down his side a lot all game, but the youngster stuck to his task well.

Jagielka 8

Made a crucial double goal-line clearance early in the game, and marshalled his defence brilliantly.

Keane 7

Has been poor since his move from Burnley, but today was a day for backs-to-the-wall defending and the England international was excellent.

Martina 7

Recovered well from a nervy start to contribute to a huge defensive effort by the home side.

Schneiderlin 8

Broke up play brilliantly, a big performance by the much criticised Frenchman.

Lennon 5

Completely ineffective and hooked at the break.

Gueye 7

Was full of energy until injury cut his game short early in the second-half.

Davies 6

Had a couple of decent moments in first-half, but was sacrificed to accommodate a tactical switch in the second period.

Sigurdsson 7

Worked hard, but never really got the ball in good enough areas to hurt Chelsea.

Calvert-Lewin 7

Is a real handful in the lone striker role, although he spurned Everton’s only real chance when he chose to shoot instead of laying it off to Sigurdsson.


Ramírez 5

Worked hard, but doesn’t looked suited to the Premier League at all.

Williams 7

Slotted into the defence nicely and his experience was crucial as Chelsea piled on the pressure.

Baningime 7

Put in a decent shift.


Courtois 7

Could have stayed at home, Everton didn’t manage a single shot on target all game.

Azpilicueta 7

Solid as always.

Christensen 7

His mistake in the first-half handed Everton their only real chance of the game, but all in all another hugely impressive display.

Rüdiger 7

Dealt with anything that came his way easily.

Moses 6

Got through a huge amount of work down the right flank, although his delivery did let him down at times.

Kanté 7

Covered a huge amount of distance in the centre of the park and passed well.

Bakayoko 3

Poor. Sloppy touch and passing, needs to be improve and fast.

Alonso 7

Another decent shift by one of Chelsea’s most consistent performers.

Willian 5

Just couldn’t get into game.

Pedro 4

When he’s good he’s really good, but when he’s poor he’s really poor, today he was the latter.

Hazard 7

Showed a couple of flashes of brilliance, however he just couldn’t find enough space up against the home sides packed defence.


Zappacosta N/A

No impact.

Batshuayi 5

Conte obviously does not trust the young striker and he did little to change his managers mind during his cameo.

Fàbregas 6

Tired to find that killer pass after his introduction, but came up against a well organised Everton defence.
