chelsea

A dramatic encounter ensued at the Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Wolves as the Blues’ new owners watched from the stands. Neither the new owners nor Thomas Tuchel could believe that Chelsea blew away a 2-goal lead. Wolves stunned Chelsea right in the last minute of the game to complete a comeback and deny them all three points. The Chelsea player ratings are here from their 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Chelsea player ratings: Defense

Edouard Mendy- 6/10

Two good saves in either half, but could only spectate the two strikes as he was let down by his defenders.

Cesar Azpilicueta- 5/10

The captain’s string of poor performances continues. However, some improvement from the last game but looked tired as the game progressed.

Thiago Silva- 7/10

Really solid at the back. At least better than his compatriots. Did his job well, while winning 4 aerial duels, 8 recoveries, 4 really important interceptions and 5 clearances.

Antonio Rudiger- 4/10

Really poor game from Real Madrid-bound Rudiger. Lost his position for both the goals as Wolves exploited the same. Lowest ratings among any other Chelsea player.

Midfield

Reece James- 6/10

Not the game Tuchel, or even Reece would have wanted to have. His attacking threat was nowhere near enough, however, did decent in defence bailing out the backline at times.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek- 7/10

Another solid performance from Loftus-Cheek. Moreover, scored as well only for VAR to deny him the opener. A 100% dribble success rate as the midfielder constantly looked to progress the ball up the field.

Mateo Kovacic- 6/10

Back in the team and back with the same powerful intensity. A 100% success rate in shot accuracy, cross accuracy and tackles. Just what Chelsea needed, but couldn’t capitalize on the Croat’s performance.

Marcos Alonso- 5/10

A quiet game from the left-back who entered the game as arguably the most in-form Blues player. However, Alonso’s failure to tick from the wing resulted in Tuchel taking him off at half-time.

Attack

Christian Pulisic- 8/10

The Chelsea player who stood out, Pulisic earns our highest ratings. Rewarded with a start and grabbed the chance with both hands. Played in a perfect ball for Lukaku to score his second and always looked to create an attacking threat whenever on the ball.

Romelu Lukaku- 8/10 

Ties with Pulisic for highest ratings. After initially missing a couple of sitters, scored the penalty which boosted his confidence. Added second from perfect placement from the edge of the penalty box.

Timo Werner- 6/10

As the German keeps delivering blow-hot blow-cold performances, this time he blew-hot. Quite lively, and constantly asked for the ball. Even scored in the first half but had the goal disallowed.

Substitutes

Saul Niguez- 5/10

Came on for Alonso at the half-time. Played at left-back, but did enough. Didn’t contribute much, but at least didn’t put a foot wrong to compromise the backline. However, should have shielded Rudiger more and well as the centre-back was having a really bad day.

Malang Sarr- N/A

Came on for Azpilicueta in the 87th minute.

Kai Havertz- N/A

Came on for Lukaku in the injury time of the second half.
