Who were the stars and the duds? Read on...


Willy Caballero -- 6 -- Just one save on the day.

Reece James -- 5 -- A miserable in 50/50s for a promising player.

Antonio Rudiger -- 6 -- Lost Maguire on United’s second goal but was otherwise strong

Andreas Christensen -- 6.5 -- Strong and fought through a bloodied nose before succumbing to the injury at halftime, but couldn’t stop Martial from making it 1-0.

Cesar Azpilicueta -- 6 -- Okay day, but rightly or wrongly his shove cost Chelsea a goal (Probably wrongly).

Mateo Kovacic -- 8 -- He was everywhere. According to Sofascore, Kovacic had over 100 touches, 87 percent passing, two key passes, four of five dribbles and 8-of-14 in duels to go with an interception, three clearances, and three tackles.

Jorginho -- 8 -- Exceptional. Nailed eight of his nine long balls and passed at 94 percent. A maestro.

N’Golo Kante -- N/A -- Only a dozen minutes before his injury-riddled season met February head-on.

Willian -- 7 -- Couldn’t get Chelsea on the board, so we shouldn’t praise him too much, but the Brazilian doesn’t get enough love for his willingness and adeptness in tackling.

Pedro -- 7 -- Three key passes highlight an active day.

Michy Batshuayi -- 5 -- Couldn’t finish some prime chances, and caught an unpunished boot to the groin. Insult meet injury. Zero shots on target.


Mason Mount -- 6 -- Nearly had an assist if not for Olivier Giroud’s offside toes.

Kurt Zouma -- 7 -- Came off the bench to score, though it was pulled off the board by VAR. Won six of seven duels, and was steady at the back.

Olivier Giroud -- 6 -- Nearly had a goal if not for his toes and the timing of a freeze frame.

Manchester United

David De Gea -- 6 -- Hardly-tested, but did have one fine save.

Luke Shaw -- 6 -- Not bad.

Harry Maguire -- 8 -- How do you rate a man who should’ve been sent off but was otherwise a beast and scored a terrific insurance goal? I guess we’re saying you rate him as if he wasn’t sent off, which he wasn’t.

Eric Bailly -- 7 -- One really poor moment early, but rebounded and showed terrific skill in recovery, tackling, and even moving the ball forward via dribble.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka -- 8 -- He may end up being the best signing of the summer (Sorry Harry). Terrific assist, four clearances, three blocked shots, two interceptions, and a tackle.

Brandon Williams -- 7 -- Steadier than his 19 years would have you imagine.

Nemanja Matic -- 7 -- Busy in the middle, albeit quieter than usual.

Fred -- 7 -- Got away with one thanks to VAR.

Bruno Fernandes -- 7 -- Continued to flash his supreme talent, though the end product eluded him.

Daniel James -- 5 -- Looked busy, but not productive.

Anthony Martial -- 7 -- Terrific header on the goal, and was industrious in trying to produce. more.


Andreas Pereira -- N/A

Odion Ighalo -- N/A

Diogo Dalot -- N/A
