Here are the player ratings for Chelsea against Manchester United:
GK) Thibaut Courtois – 8.0 (Motm)
The Belgian didn’t always have that much to do, but what he did he did superbly. A number of excellent saves in the first half kept Manchester United out, including a number of great stops against Robin van Persie. Could do nothing to prevent the equaliser.
RB) Branislav Ivanovic – 7.0
Marauding down the right side, Ivanovic was solid in both attack and defence. Luke Shaw and Angel di Maria were a real handful at times but were marshalled well. Was very unlucky not to get a penalty in the first half. His foul on Angel di Maria resulted in his second yellow late on however, and allowed Manchester United to get the equaliser.
CB) John Terry – 7.0
Ever reliable at the back the experienced Chelsea captain didn’t put a foot wrong.
CB) Gary Cahill – 7.0
Struggled very occasionally with Robin van Persie’s movement but was solid for the most part.
LB) Filipe Luis – 7.0
An able deputy during Cesar Azpilicueta’s absence, was extremely bright in the first half but did fade in the second half somewhat.
