Chelsea needed to beat Huddersfield to keep hopes alive of a Champions League spot, but the Blues only got a point as the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

See the player ratings from this game:

Caballero: Would be blamed for the first goal as he rushed out too early and didn’t put up a strong enough challenge on Laurent Depoitre. 5/10

Rudiger: Had a good opportunity to score in the first half but missed target with an open net gaping at him. 6/10

Christensen: Barely had anything to do at the back, and was solid when called upon. Almost scored with a header late in the second half, but for a save from Jonas Lossl who was in good form. 6.5/10

Azpilicueta: Had a good game at the back, and provided width at the right flank when he switched to a right-back position. 6.5/10

Kante: He was everywhere on the pitch winning balls, made some fantastic runs and laid a good pass to Morata in the first-half. 7/10

Fabregas: Had a decent game but nearly cost his team when he was sloppy in possession at the dying minute of the game. 5/10

Zappacosta: Had an anonymous performance and was taken off early in the second half for Olivier Giroud. 5/10

Alonso: Was fortunate to score the equaliser for Chelsea, and had a good volley in the first half that could have put Chelsea in front. 6.5/10

Pedro: Anonymous performance from the Spaniard, and was taken off early in the second half for Eden Hazard. 5/10

Willian: Was average in the first-half, but improved in the second-half. However, he lost the ball that led to Huddersfield’s goal. 5.5/10

Morata: Had one good chance in the first-half, but couldn’t find the net from such a tight angle. Lacked quality service for most part of the game. 6/10


Giroud: Brought power and aerial presence to Chelsea’s attack, and his introduction boosted the attack. 6.5/10

Hazard: His introduction sparked up Chelsea’s attack in the second half, but his skills couldn’t penetrate Huddersfield’s defence. 6/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
