Chelsea squeezed past Hull City at the KC Stadium earlier today to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to six points with nine games to go and one game in hand on Manchester City, their nearest rivals.

(Video) Chelsea 2-2 Hull City – Goal! Abel Hernandez pulls his side level, was Courtois to blame?
Here’s how the Blues players rated today:
GK: Thibaut Courtois – 6
He was at fault for Hull’s equaliser after a shocking error which gifted the goal to Abel Hernandez, but pulled off an impressive triple save midway through the second half to make up for it.
RB: Branislav Ivanovic – 5
Contributed to the confusion which led to Hernandez’s equalizer and generally had a poor game defensively which he will be disappointed with.
CB: Gary Cahill – 5
Cahill’s game was limited after being booked early on, but he still contributed with clearances and brave blocks from Hull shots on goal.
CB: John Terry – 7
Won his challenges and led his side from defence, an assured game from the Chelsea captain who deserves a lot of plaudits should his team go on to lift the Premier League trophy.
LB: Filipe Luis – 6
A reasonable Azpilicueta replacement, solid without being spectacular. Defensively the Brazilian was solid and contributed to attacking phases of play.
