See the ratings of the Chelsea players:
Kepa: Made some decent saves to keep Chelsea in the game and had an okay game. Made a good save to deny Lukaku in the first-half. 6/10
Azpilicueta: Robust defensive performance from the captain and was a beast down the right, both in the attack and defence. 8/10
Rudiger: Was having a good game before his injury in the second-half. Assisted Alonso for his goal as his spilled shot fell in the path of the Spaniard who tapped home. 6/10
Luiz: Started the game shaky and had a difficult first-half against Lukaku and Rashford. Made some mistakes with his passing, but got better in the second-half. 6/10
Alonso: Beaten for pace by Marcus Rashford a number of times, but he was at the right place at the right time to score Chelsea’s equaliser from an Antonio Rudiger shot. 7/10
Jorginho: Looked a different player as he worked harder in midfield today and kept his passing neat and tidy. Very influential performance. 7/10
Kante: Was everywhere today as he was a driving force in midfield. His runs were a continuous problem for United and his defensive duties was excellent. 8/10
Kovacic: Nothing worked for him today and he was below par for most parts of the game. could have gotten a red card on another day. 4/10
Willian: Looked dangerous at times although not at his best. Took a nasty challenge from Rojo during the game that should have given him a red card. 6/10
Hazard: Was Chelsea’s most dangerous player in the first-half and was fouled too many times in the game. Got quieter in the second-half. 7/10
Higuain: Wasn’t much involved in the game and missed a good chance that was saved by De Gea late in the game. 3/10
Christensen: Came for the injured Rudiger and he slotted in calmly at the back. Good game in a high pressed performance. 6/10
Loftus-Cheek: Definitely had more impact than Kovacic as he made some dangerous runs.
Pedro: Came on for Willian in the 64th minute. Headed a ball out on the line and that was his biggest contribution to the game.
