CaughtOffside rates the Chelsea players for their performances against Crystal Palace…
Crystal Palace 0-2 Chelsea – The Blues regained their five point lead at the top of the Premier League table, with goals from Oscar and Cesc Fabregas the difference between the two teams. Frazier Campbell scored the late consolation.
The Brazilian midfielder struck early with a sumptuous free-kick, and his Spanish teammate made the points safe shortly after half-time, following red cards to both Cesar Azpilicueta and Crystal Palace’s Damien Delaney.
Read the full Chelsea ratings below:
GK) Thibaut Courtois – 7
A couple of very good saves from the Belgian, Campbell’s late goal denied him what would have been a well deserved clean sheet.
RB) Branislav Ivanovic – 6
A typically solid defensive performance, although his crossing was disappointing.
