Chelsea 1-1 Aston Villa Player Ratings
Edouard Mendy – 4
Not the best from Chelsea’s new first choice goalkeeper but did well enough to help Chelsea get a draw.
Ben Chilwell – 9
Lovely cross for Olivier Giroud to give Chelsea the lead in the first half. His overall performance was far better than in the Arsenal game last time out.
Antonio Rudiger – 5
Not his best display but came close with his heading opportunities, someone like Zouma could have scored one of those.
Andreas Christensen – 5
He was fouled by Jack Grealish before the Aston Villa equaliser but should have gotten up quicker.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 5
Got caught with the ball and left Anwar El Ghazi unmarked at the right to score past Mendy.
Jorginho – 5
A not too impressive display from the Italian.
N’Golo Kante – 6
He even tried to score twice with two shots in the second half. Played more advanced with Jorginho on the pitch.
Mason Mount – 7
Everyone can now see why he’s the only Chelsea player that starts regularly in attack for the Blues.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – 7
Fantastic display from the young winger. He impressed in the first half and could have done more than only putting crosses in the box.
Olivier Giroud – 7
Caused some chaos for the Villa defence while on the pitch.
Christian Pulisic – 6
The usual Pulisic running at defences is what he did again today but failed to have any real end product.
