Despite going 2-0 down against the German side, Chelsea managed to bounce back and pick up a draw in the last game of pre-season. Here are your player ratings of each and every player who featured in the game.
Kepa – 6.5
Was at fault for the first goal of the game with a misplaced pass, but made a brilliant save in the second half. Distribution not bad.
Emerson – 7
Was bright when running down the wing, unfortunately there were not many crosses. Good defensively making a couple good tackles.
Christensen – 7
First twenty minutes were shaky, and was also slightly in the fault for their second goal after not playing the offside trap, however had a brilliant second half and made some vital tackles. Read the play well.
Zouma – 5
Knowing Zouma’s talent, this was a disappointing perforamnce. He did make a couple tackles and showed his strength and pace once or twice, but he did not look comfortable on the ball and his passes were never in front of the person.
Jorginho – 5.5
Jorginho in pre-season has looked very effective under Frank Lampard, however today was not one of his best days. At fault with Kepa for the first goal, and looked quite tired throughout the game.
Kovacic – 6.5
If he hadn’t got the assist for the first goal via the penalty, he probably would have got a 6 but it was a very good run. Probably could have scored, but we are talking about Kovacic. Decent performance.
Mount – 7
Had good spells here and there, if clinical probably could have actually had a hat-trick. Looked comfortable playing in the 10 role, and did a brilliant piece of skill to assist the second goal via the penalty.
Pulisic – 7.5
Looks extremely confident when on the ball, and had a few nice touches here and there. Had one opportunity in the first half which he could have scored, but his work ethic really helped us defensively.
Pedro – 6
Don’t remember him doing anything special this match. Average performance at most.
Abraham – 6
Missed three one on ones, and we will need our Striker to be a lot more clinical in the upcoming season. A few good driblles and hold up play was decent, good to get the goal via the penalty for his confidence.
Alonso – 6
Average performance. Played one nice ball to Mount who should have scored, but he can’t cross and he’s too slow when defending.
Barkley – 6
To be fair to Barkley, he was played out of position first in the deeper role where he lost the ball twice in critical areas and then at LW he didn’t look as strong. He’s much much better in the 10 role.
Kenedy and Giroud – 6
Done both these players in one becasuse they had similar performances. Nothing special, Kenedy neat on the ball and Giroud with some good holdup play.
Kante – N/A
Too little time to give him a rating or make an impact. Played in the deeper role in the 4-2-3-1 formation however he was still pressing high. Fitness and gametime is all he needs at the moment though.
