Nicolas Jackson, Center forward: 7

Jackson showed very good movement again and got on the end of the best chances of the game, especially in the first half, but his finishing was rubbish. He also created chances, including a clear-cut chance.

Mykhailo Mudryk (23′): 7

Mudryk was a lot more effective than either Nkunku or Sterling. The Ukraine winger completed 3/7 dribbles and won 5/11 ground duels. He might start the season ahead of Raheem Sterling.

Malo Gusto (73′): 7

Gusto helped Chelsea escape pressure. His passing was clean and he helped out defensively.

Marc Cucurella (73′): 7

Cucurella was quite good defensively after coming on. In the 17 minutes he was on the pitch, he won 4/4 tackles and 4/5 ground duels.

Ian Maatsen (73′): 6

Maatsen was inconsequential, though Chelsea was under a lot of pressure when he was on the pitch so he didn’t really get ample chances to affect the game. It is telling that Pochettino is willing to play Maatsen everywhere except his actual position: left back.

Bashir Humphreys (73′): 6

Humphreys did nothing while on the pitch, and it doesn’t make for good reading that Chelsea conceded when Silva was subbed off for him.

Mason Burstow (81′): N/A

Burstow was by far the best-performing substitute on the pitch. He got on the end of Fernandez’s flick-on to tie the game 1-1. He doesn’t get a rating because he didn’t play up to 10 minutes.

dark. Next. Chelsea’s Lauren James puts herself at top of Golden Ball discussion

Lewis Hall (81′): N/A

Hall did literally nothing in the nine minutes he was on the pitch.
