A Saido Berahino double and a Chris Brunt effort condemned the Blues to their first defeat since New Years Day.

Take a look at how we have rated Jose Mourinho’s side against The Baggies:

GK) Thibaut Courtois – 5

Mixed game for the young Belgian as he pulled off a great stop to deny Callum McManaman early on, but should have done better with the penalty and Chris Brunt’s effort that beat him at the near post.

RB) Branislav Ivanovic – 5

Strangely subdued performance from the right-back, who was not helped by the sending off of Fabregas. After that, he wasn’t able to attack at will down the flank as usual.

CB) Gary Cahill – 5

The England international didn’t seem up for the game and his performance suffered because of it. He simply couldn’t cope with the pace and movement of Berahino.

CB) John Terry – 4

Poor performance from the Blues skipper which was compounded as he conceded a penalty with an awful challenge on Saido Berahino early in the second half.

LB) Felipe Luis – 6

Another chance for the Brazilian full-back ahead of Cesar Azpilicueta and he produced a solid effort in a tough game.
