Player Ratings: Chelsea 1-0 Everton

Chelsea faced Everton in a match where both sides had chances, though the opposing defence was good enough to block the threat out. Everton played very well and had more possession. They didn’t however make as many chances as Chelsea so some may say we deserved the late victory We played like Champions, and Terry’s late goal may be enough, although it is early, for us to win the title. You may question the team selection with players like Oscar and Willian starting, as you might have expected them to be rested for our midweek Champions League match.

ImageHere are our player ratings for the match:

Petr Cech- 7.5/10

Petr had an average game in the sticks though he made a wonderful save in the second half.

Branislav Ivanovic- 8/10

Ivanovic was very steady in defence and kept Baines’ attacking prowess to a minimum. He also played considerably well in attack and had an all round great game.

John Terry- 8/10

Captain. Leader. Legend. Three words which optimise John Terry. He kept Naismith quiet throughout the match and he earned the winner touch to scramble Lampard’s cross into the net.ImageGary Cahill- 7.5/10

Gary played well alongside Terry however he wasn’t as influential. He did make those great last-ditch blocks, interceptions and tackles, which we have come to expect from him.

Cesar Azpilicueta- 8/10

Dave played very well against Coleman and Mirallas and kept them both out of the match. He also started our counter-attacks well down the left hand side of the pitch.

Nemanja Matic- 8/10

Matic had another blinder sitting in front of our defence. He is very good defensively, but adds another passing dimension in our attack. He has been a great signing so far this season.

Frank Lampard- 7.5/10

Super Frank today showed that he could still keep up with the big boys. His rarely made a defensive mistake and his passing game was great. Often, his age caught up with him though, as his lack of pace combined with a poor first touch gave away possession in advanced positions.

Oscar (Subbed off at half time for Ramires)- 6.5/10

Oscar put in another shift in defence today but seriously lacked in attack. He needs a good rest now, as his performances recently have been rather lethargic.

Willian (Subbed off for Torres 61st minute)-7/10

Willian is another player in needs a break badly. He too has been very tired in his last couple of games, and it has shown in his sloppy play today.

Eden Hazard-7.5/10

Coleman did very well today against Hazard and kept him under wraps. Eden’s play improved when Shurrle came on and he moved into a more central position, but he too needs a break in my opinion.

Sameul Eto’o (Subbed off 69th minute for Shurrle)- 7/10

Eto’o had a quite game against Everton. He did not challenge in the air and his play allowed the Evertonion’s to drop deep in defence. This did not help players like Hazard and Willian and Torres’ substitution was needed.

Used Subs:

Ramires- 7.5/10

Ramires came on for a tired Oscar and he had an average game in the second half. He nearly scored a wonderful goal but that was basically the only thing he did while he was on.

FernandoTorres- 7.5/10

I am not sure why Torres did not start this match, and in my opinion, he had a good game when came on. His ability to charge at defences forced Jagielka and Distin to sit higher in defence, which helped Hazard and Shurrle later on in the game. He was winning aerial dules, hustling the defence and charging at the, putting them under pressure.

Andre Shurrle- 7/10

Shurrle showed some glimpses of class for the 20 minutes he was on. He clearly needs to play more to improve, and this lack of gametime showed in his low confidence play.

  1. Cfc_obsessed says

    Why will u say cech had an average game when he saved two shots destined inside our net. I ve not read other player rating but u got it wrong for cech. Do u thing is very easy to safe a deflected shot

  2. Cfc_obsessed says

    Who wrote this rating? I dont think u watch this match. U said ramires didnt do anything except d long shot? Can i ask u who get us the goal? Ramires was fouled by jagieka or wot. He might ve played woefully in recent matched but this he brought stability to our mid field when he came on. U said torres had a good game? Hahahaha! Re u fucking sleeping? Off target shots? Way too off. U shouldnt be allowed to rate a player in this site

  3. Zyte says

    how can u rate cech & rami like that.2 me rami was the reason we restored bite & fluidity in our midfield.matic was clearly outplayd by the experiencd leon osman & u rate him so high.oscar should be rated 310 he was clearly by far the flop of the match.torres shootn is wayward.ur rating lacks credibility.cfc 4 life

  4. Fik says

    I am so sad with z bad game we have. Oscar not deserved 6.5 and it is Ramiras energestic play changed z game and we won. Z goal is z result of Rami & Terry. Torres has bad game he missed z unmissed chance by kicking z ball out of target. It is disappointing wasting z great effort of others. He lacks confidence, he can’t create chance to others or he can’t win penality with that chances he got. We r unlucky this season we can’t win game with our strikers … In z last 3 or 4 game #10 players role dropped to zero. This also dropped z already dropped striking. This comes Jose formation to play against Man city. At that game Rami is out of game and in this Oscar is out of game. It needs coach support to improve z dead#10 role. It also kills z uncovincing striking…

  5. Martin, Norway. says

    Ofcourse Shurrle should play more.

  6. Martin, Norway. says

    Hazard, William and Oscar needs some break. Mourinho should be able to realise this.

  7. adam says

    You get it wrong for rami: he was excellent! This shows that mou needs to give some break to Hazard, William and Oscar.

  8. Emile 10 says

    WTF! Torres was useless. Catched offside most off the time. Shooting off target and you give him 7.5?? Ramires was the best player in the game. The guy change the game for us and then you say he didn’t do anything. It’s sad to have an admin like you

  9. pattycfc says

    Fuck off……… can u rate rami,cech nd cahill like that,is like u did not watch the match at all. Bad rating…..
