LONDON – The Chelsea vs Liverpool punters’ ratings were a lot of fun as the two Big Six teams both went to Stamford Bridge.

A 1-1 draw A strong start from Liverpool saw Luis Diaz score but Axel Disassi equalized and both teams had chances to win in the west London sunshine.

We give each player below 10 marks as the two Premier League heavyweights put in a good show going forward, but their limitations, particularly in defensive midfield, were evident.


Chelsea Player Ratings (3-5-2)

Robert Sanchez: 6 – Not much to do but delivery was good. As always. A corner was claimed well late on to start a counter, where Chelsea won it.

Axel Disasi: 7 – Scored a Premier League debut and was very solid defensively. Good start.

Thiago Silva: 7 – Always in perfect condition and excellent at 38.

Levi Colville: 6 – Had a tough time against Mohamed Salah in the first half but was better in the second half. Distribution should be improved.

Reese James: 7.5 – Such attacking power and this wing-back role allows him to stay forward for long periods. It looked like he had a little knock in the second half.

Enzo Fernandez: 8 – Combines well with James and Sterling. His class on the ball is evident and he is the heartbeat of this Chelsea team.

Conor Gallagher: 6 – Worked hard in a deep central midfield role but could not impact the game.

Corny Chukwuemega: 6 – Some nice touches as he gets onto the ball and the play continues.

Ben Chilwell: 7 – Assist on Tisasi’s goal, who thought he had a goal but was ruled out for offside. Amazing energy and progressed well.

Raheem Sterling: 7 – Works hard and combines well with James, but the final pass or cross doesn’t happen for him.

Nicholas Jackson: 6 – See above. Had a lot of good runs in behind Liverpool’s defense but missed a great chance from six yards in the first half. Worked really hard and his clever work on the counter almost led to a late, late winner.

Liverpool Player Ratings (4-3-3)

Alison: 6 – Not much to do but well suppressed Jackson’s first half effort.

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 6 – Beautiful ball forward for Salah’s disallowed goal. Engaged heavily in the beginning but faded. Did he switch off for Disasi’s goal? Klopp was angered by some of his distribution choices.

Ibrahim Konad: 6 – Caught by Jackson’s pace on a few occasions and dragged out of position when he stepped high.

Virgil Van Dyck: 6 – A brisk effort, it flies up. Defensively okay, but Jackson showed his declining speed at times.
