Despite heaping all the pressure on Arsenal, Chelsea were unable to break down Arsenal’s defence in the Carabao Cup semi-final clash at Stamford Bridge.

See how the players are rated from this game:

Courtois: Had one big save to make in the first half to deny Alex Iwobi, but was comfortable after that and barely troubled. 6/10

Christensen: The young defender had a good game in defence and kept Lacazette very quiet. Although he wasted a couple of very good chances himself with poor headers. 7/10

Rudiger: Solid defensive performance from the German, as he kept the left side of the defence tight. 7/10

Moses: A constant threat going forward, and even forced some saves off Ospina. 7/10

Kante: Typical good tackling and positional movement to shore up Chelsea’s midfield, and drove at the defence at one point to try to split them open. 7/10

Fabregas: Not his best game as he couldn’t break through the Arsenal defence. Got tired towards the end of the game, but still tried to produce moments, but nothing much came off it. 6/10

Drinkwater: Didn’t have the best effect in midfield, especially in the first-half as he lost possession a couple of times. Was subbed off early in the second-half. 5/10

Alonso: Not at the usual level as we’ve seen in recent times, but he didn’t have a bad game either. 6/10

Hazard: Got into some scoring chances but stayed too long on the ball and wasted a couple of good opportunities. Taken off in the second-half. 6/10

Morata: Had some good link up play and burst of pace, but again with chances at his feet he didn’t find the target. Subbed off late in the game for Batshuayi. 6/10


Willian: Came on for Drinkwater and looked really lively. 6/10

Bakayoko: Came on late in the game for Hazard.

Batshuayi: Came on late for Morata.
