Here are the player ratings for Chelsea against Manchester United:

Thibaut Courtois Chelsea

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.

Branislav Ivanovic Chelsea

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.

John Terry Chelsea

CB) John Terry – 7.0

Ever reliable at the back the experienced Chelsea captain didn’t put a foot wrong.

Gary Cahill Chelsea

CB) Gary Cahill – 7.0

Struggled very occasionally with Robin van Persie’s movement but was solid for the most part.

Filipe Luis Chelsea

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.
