Chelsea player ratings vs Leeds: Edouard Mendy shines but Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic struggle

[ad_1]

Chelsea were off key on Saturday as Leeds earned a deserved point at Elland Road, dealing a blow to the Blues’ top-four hopes in the process.

Here’s how James Robson rated those on show…

Brilliant saves denied Roberts and Raphinha in each half. The busiest he’s been in a long time – but responded impressively. 

In an orthodox right-back role he was stretched early on, but got control of his side as the game went on. 

Like the rest of Chelsea’s defence, he looked uncertain to begin with as Leeds created openings. Composed use of the ball when starting moves from the back.

Wonderful header denied Bamford a certain goal. Also managed to keep Raphinha relatively quiet once Chelsea got control defensively.

A performance full of attacking threat. Found himself in dangerous positions with his bursting runs. 

Powerfully carried the ball forward and allowed Chelsea to command possession in midfield. Really good defensively at set pieces.

Important in settling Chelsea defensively when dropping back to fill gaps that were there in the opening stages and provide an outlet for the defenders.

Not at his most influential, but still made things happen with his energy and work rate. Final ball let him down.
