|1. JOHN TERRY - DC||9.4|
Captain, Leader, Game-winning Goal Scorer, Man of the Match. John Terry saved his highest rated performance of the season for a most opportune moment.
If we're counting, and of course we are, that's the 16th goal from a Chelsea defender this season. For JT, it was his 6th of the season and 60th in his Chelsea career. Legend!
|2. CESAR AZPILICUETA - DL||9.0|
Games likes these are when you remember that Mourinho once claimed that he would win the Champions League if he had 11 Azpilicuetas. With our cloning program apparently running behind schedule, we fortunately only needed one to win the League Cup.
So sorry, Spurs right wing, better luck next time!
|3. KURT ZOUMA - DMC||8.8|
Plenty of praise for young Zouma, plenty of further comparisons with the legendary Marcel Desailly, plenty of room for improvement still. And that latter part is probably the best thing about this.
Zouma found out just two days before the match that he'd get to start and start in a position he's never played before. That he basically nullified the usually super-dangerous Christian Eriksen is testament to his quick learning and his overall football skills. That he was even considered to be used in this role is a testament to the genius (madness?) of Mourinho. It's a pretty thin line, as they say.
