LCB) Mamadou Sakho – 6
Almost gifted Chelsea a goal after giving the ball away cheaply. Injured himself in the process and replaced by Glen Johnson.
CB) Martin Skrtel – 7
Was another victim of a possible Costa stamp. Put in an all-action display full of guts and determination. Unfortunate to be on the losing side in this one.
DM) Lucas Leiva – 6
The Brazilian put in a strong and commanding performance in front of the back three, but was a little lucky not to be sent off for more than one foul while already on a yellow card.
