Asmir Begovic: 6
The keeper was rarely tested but was on alert to quickly come off his line and clear out a dangerous ball 40 yards from his goal, although he should have done better in Dragovic’s goal.
Baba Rahman: 6
Had a decent game, a better performance from previous outing. The defender showed some signs of improvement.
John Terry: 6
The defender was calm at the back, held the defense together with his experience. Didn’t do anything wrong today.
Kurt Zouma: 6
Close to scoring a goal, but missed from 4 yards out. The defender used his pace and strength very well.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 6
The defender was impressive at his natural right back position. Contributed to the team’s attack and dis his defensive job well.
Nemanja Matic: 6.5
He Protected the back four well, had a good game tonight.
One of the blues best performers so far this season, wasn’t up to his usual best, although he a good game overall
Cesc Fabregas: 6.5
Showed great energy and desire. Was all over the pitch doing his bit with good link up play. An encouraging performance from the Spaniard.
Willian: 8 (MoTM)
The Hero of the night, the Brazilian produced a man of the match performance and saved his team by scoring the winner with a well taken freekick.
Oscar: 5.5 (FoTM)
The Brazilian was deployed on the wings, he was generally ineffective but drew a good save from Dynamo Kiev’s goal keeper.
The striker was ineffective, he had an average game overall and easily went to ground looking for a penalty when it would have been better if he had stayed on his feet.
Injected pace and urgency to his team
He was introduced into the game with about 10 minutes to go, had little time to make an impact.
Was brought on to protect the lead. A late defensive change.
