Levi Colwill: 6/10
Colwill’s long passing was again, rubbish. He was very strong in the duels though. He was unsuccessful in all the crosses he attempted, which may not be surprising considering that crossing is not part of his skillset. He should take some responsibility for the goal Chelsea conceded, as he was the first player in the play that was caught out of position.
Conor Gallagher: 7.5/10
Gallagher was great. He did everything. He won a good amount of his duels, created chances, defended well and distributed impeccably. Very important things for someone playing in the middle of the park.
Moises Caicedo: 7.5/10
Caicedo was neat and tidy. He kept it simple and tried to make sure the Blues did not get caught in possession due to carelessness. He got a bit sloppy toward the end of the game, but its somewhat understandable at that point. He contributed positively in all phases of play.
Enzo Fernandez: 7.5/10
Fernandez was superb, especially in distributing the ball. He boasted a 92% passing accuracy despite attempting 14 long balls. He completed an impressive 12/14 long balls and made 5 defensive actions. He’s more influential now that he’s not playing as close to the opposition’s goal as he was in previous games.
Cole Palmer: 6/10
Palmer wasn’t great. He did well in some areas, and tucked home a sumptuous penalty, but overall he did not play well. According to Sofascore, he completed 0/4 dribbles he attempted, won 0/8 ground duels, and lost possession of the ball 17 times, creating only two chances. He created a clear cut chance though, credit to him.
