Here is how the Blues players were rated in their 1-1 draw with Burnley at Stamford Bridge according to Football.london
Before the 25th minute, when Cornet fired right at him, he had nothing to do. After the interval, he had a shaky moment as he tried to handle a backpass and was clattered by Wood, who had completed the clearing. As his defenders fell asleep, there was nothing he could do with the goal. 7
Throughout the game, he was one of Chelsea’s most dangerous attacking threats, as he pushed Charlie Taylor extraordinarily high. Havertz’s opening was a beautiful cross that was on a plate for the German. Silva almost got another assist, but his header came back off the post. He’s on fire right now, and he’s just going to grow better. 9
Andreas Christensen is a Danish architect.
He could have done better with a headed opportunity he missed in the fifth minute. He wasn’t really put to the test defensively, but he was caught off guard for the equalizer when Rodriguez snuck in behind him. 7
Thiago Silva is a Brazilian footballer.
It seemed surprising that he was making his third start in a week. In the first 45 minutes, I was really comfortable against Wood and Cornet, and I didn’t give them an inch. In the second half, Wood was replaced by Rodriguez, who did not fare any better. 7
In the first half, he also had a headed attempt that went wide as Chelsea controlled and had nothing to do defensively for the bulk of the game. Vydra’s equalizer run went unnoticed. 7
After a midweek layoff, he returned to the starting XI and combined well with Havertz on the left, but he saw much less of the ball than James. With Dwight McNeil, it wasn’t the simplest day, and Westwood might have been shut down a little sooner for the equaliser. 7
In the first half, he picked apart Burnley with ease, albeit he did leave a lot of the work to Kante to get Chelsea moving. After halftime, he took command of the game and made a series of key interceptions as Burnley threatened. 8
After missing the midweek match against Malmo, he has been recalled to the squad. In the first half, he was bursting with enthusiasm as he attempted to connect up with the strikers rather than sit centrally. In the second half, he seemed fatigued, which was understandable given his lack of play in previous weeks. 7
For the first time since July 2020, he started a Premier League game for Chelsea. Early on, he showed promise, coming close with a 20-yard field goal and continuously demanding the ball from his teammates on the half turn. However, he still has to improve his decision-making in the last third. 7
In the first 45 minutes, there was a lot of enthusiasm, but it didn’t get the better of the Burnley defense too frequently. After the break, he got more space to play centrally, which transformed his fortunes. With a close-range opportunity to make it 2-0, he could have done better, and he didn’t have much of an influence in the second half. 7
After mis-controlling a pass on the outside of the Burnley box, he drew the first wrath of Tuchel for the day. Just beyond the half-hour mark, a well-placed header gave Chelsea the lead. Should have made it two quickly after the interval, as the second quarter was relatively calm. 7
