Levi Colwill – 6 – Colwill playing in this left back position as opposed to his familiar centre back spot, he was good for Chelsea in build up and kept the ball well, however not much came down his side defensively and he wasn’t overly tested in 1v1 wide areas. He also had a goal disallowed in the second half for offside.
Thiago Silva – 6 – Silva again was relatively untested, kept his position well and was getting on the ball more than his centre back partner Disasi for build up from the back. He played the most passes for Chelsea (79) and attempted the most (83).
