See the player ratings for this game

Kepa: Made two stunning saves to keep Chelsea in the game and had a good game in general. 7/10

Reece James: Started the game well with some good crosses, but dropped his tempo afterwards. Was easily beaten by Cresswell for West Ham’s goal. 6/10

Zouma: Didn’t make any mistake particularly, but the Blues still looked vulnerable at the back. 6/10

Tomori: Didn’t make any mistake at the back. However, Chelsea’s defence never looked settled. 6/10

Emerson: His second-half performance was very flat as he didn’t contribute much to the team’s attack. 5/10

Jorginho: Didn’t have any influence on the game and didn’t look like his usual self this evening. 4/10

Kovacic: Kept driving with the ball in midfield, but the West Ham defence was too compact. 6/10

Mount: Started the game well in the number 10 role but ran out of ideas afterwards. 5/10

Pedro: Haven’t been on the pitch since October and looked very rusty. 3/10

Pulisic: Tried his best but the rest of the frontline didn’t seem to be at his level. 6/10

Giroud: Didn’t offer the team much today. Looked very rusty. Doesn’t seem to flow well with this Chelsea’s style of play under Frank Lampard. 4/10


Willian: Added life to the flanks after replacing Pedro shortly after the hour mark. 6/10

Kante: Brought energy to the Chelsea midfield, but couldn’t add any bite to the Chelsea attack. 5/10

Hudson-Odoi: Didn’t have the space to run at defenders and his delivery was too wayward. 5/10
