Here is how we have rated the performances of Jose Mourinho’s side on a special day for the West London outfit.
GK) Thibaut Courtois – 6
The Belgian stopper was recalled to the starting XI after missing the win against Leicester City in midweek and other than a late block to deny Wilifried Zaha he was largely untested throughout the 90 minutes and will be happy to have kept his third clean sheet in succession.
RB) Branislav Ivanovic – 6
Was given one of his most sternest test this season by Zaha and was booked for a poor challenge on the Palace winger in the first half. The defender proved why he is one of the very best in the league by keeping the winger rather quiet after the break.
CB) Gary Cahill – 7
Another solid game for the England international, as he did very well to nullify the threat of Yannick Bolasie in the first half and then Glen Murray in the second.
CB) John Terry (C) – 6
Made a typical John Terry like block in the first half to deny Jason Puncheon the opener but was fortunate to get away with a handball claim in the same incident and was booked in the first half.
LB) Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Had a quieter afternoon to that of his team-mate Ivanovic on the opposite side and contained the threat of Puncheon really well and proved why he is such a reliable figure in the Blues back-four.
