 Chelsea 

 

Courtois 7

Dealt with anything that came his way confidently.

Solid as a rock and a brilliant cross for the winner.

 

Christensen 8

David who ? Superb display by the youngster, composed and assured throughout.

 

Cahill 7

Decent display by the Chelsea captain.

 

Kanté 8

Showed no signs of rustiness on his return from injury as Chelsea dominated the midfield.

 

Zappacosta 7

Put in a solid shift at right-wing back.

 

Fàbregas 9

A passing masterclass by the Spaniard.

 

Bakayoko 8

Boundless energy and caused United problems all day with his tireless running.

 

Alonso 8

Very good, probably just edged a really physical battle with Valencia.

 

Morata 8

Good hold-up play and took his goal superbly.

 

Hazard 8

Excellent, such a danger with the ball at his feet.

Subs

 

Rüdiger 7

Slotted in well and shored up things at the back for The Blues.

 

Drinkwater N/A

No impact.

 

Willian N/A

No impact.

 

 

Manchester United

 

De Gea 7

No chance for Morata’s headed winner.

 

Bailly 7

Used his physicality well on a number of occasions as Chelsea pilled on the pressure

 

Smalling 6

Tried to get up close and personal with Morata but the Spaniard had the last laugh.

 

Jones 6

Always gives 100% but like Smalling lost his duel with Chelsea’s Spanish striker.

 

Valencia 7

Worked tirelessly, but struggled to get forward due to the presence of Alonso.

 

Herrera 6

Part of a United midfield that was completely over run by Chelsea.

 

Matic 6

Kept possession well at times, but like Herrera lost the midfield battle.

 

Young 7

Some decent crosses in first period and defended well at times.

 

Mkhitaryan 3

Another poor performance by the Armenian.

 

Lukaku 5

One decent turn and shot in first period but anonymous for the most part.

 

Rashford 5

 

Not great. Bottled a header early on and delivery from set-pieces was abysmal.

Subs

 

Fellaini 5

Sloppy in possession, although he did cause Chelsea problems from long balls and crosses late on.

 

Martial 5

United’s super sub just couldn’t get into the game after his introduction.

 

Lingard N/A 

No impact.
