Courtois: 7 – Had very few big saves to make but was there when the team needed him.

Azpilicueta: 8 – A good game overall, was very rarely found out at left back.

Terry: 8.5 – A brilliant display from the Chelsea captain, gave the Arsenal attack no space and organised his defence brilliantly when it was under intense pressure. Man of the Match.

Cahill: 8 – Improving as the season draws to a close, played well.

Ivanovic: 7.5 – Gave away a couple of fouls when up against Alexis Sanchez but nothing that cost the team.

Matic: 7.5 – Another solid display, barely put a foot wrong.

Fabregas: 7.5 – Played well and made a number of very good passes, particularly for Oscar early on. Unlucky to be booked for diving when he was tripped in the area.

Ramires: 7.5 – Missed a great chance in the first half. Probably Chelsea’s most ambitious midfielder.

Oscar: 7 – Should have been awarded a penalty when he beat Ospina to the ball. Taken off at half-time.

Willian: 7.5 – A good, industrious performance.

Hazard: 7.5 – Worked very hard to get back and defend when not without the ball, held the ball up well when he had it and generally did well in a rare start as a lone striker.

 

Substitutes:

Drogba: 7 – Brought on at half-time and worked hard without threatening.

Zouma: N/A – Brought on very late on.

Cuadrado: N/A – The same as above.

 

Manager:

Jose Mourinho: 8.5 – Prepared his team very well in setting up not to lose. Playing Hazard up front was probably the best option without Costa and Remy available. He probably brought on Drogba too early but this might have been because of the knock Oscar took from Ospina.
