Chelsea find themselves doing a bit of soul searching today after a humbling experience against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Although the players were only following the instructions of their manager, the passive manner of the performance in the 1-0 defeat has inevitably left a sour taste – and it’s also telling of how Antonio Conte views his current squad in terms of quality.
Following Sunday’s clash, we asked Chelsea fans to give individual performance ratings out of ten for each player involved in the meeting with the Citizens and it appears there are four, excluding substitutes, that disappointed Blues supporters most.
While midfield pairing Cesc Fabregas and Danny Drinkwater picked up an average rating of just 4/10, two Chelsea players actually fared worse than that. Wing-back Victor Moses received a mere 3.7 rating, while attacking midfielder Pedro – who failed to make any use of what little of the ball he received – had the worst rating of just 3.6.
Were these performances simply a one-off, Chelsea fans, or would you like to see some of the aforementioned quartet axed from the starting XI for the Blues’ next game? Let us know by commenting below…
