Pedro's fantastic season continues with yet another headed goal. Overall, it's his tenth tally of the season, giving him one more already than he had all of last season.
It's the 7th time in his last 8 seasons that Pedro's reached double-digit figures in goals scored. In all competitions this season, Pedro, Hazard, and Costa have 36 goals between themselves.
|2. NATHAN AKÉ||7.7|
The player who looked the most comfortable in defense.
He may not have Kurt Zouma's physical attributes and he certainly does not have John Terry's vast experience, but Nathan Aké was the only player in defense who managed to avoid panic stations for most of the game.
He also showed his versatility when switching to left wing-back for the final 20 minutes. His primary position may be in the back three, but that sort of flexibility can be invaluable.
|3. CESC FÀBREGAS||7.5|
Fàbregas barely edged out Azpilicueta for the third spot in last weekend's game; this time, there was no doubt to whom the bronze medal would go.
Here's something you might not have expected: Fàbregas has now appeared in the last 15 games (7 starts) — starting with his start against Manchester City — which is the third longest active streak on the team after Willian (16 games; 9 starts) and Azpilicueta, who has played in every single match in every single competition so far this season starting all but two of them.
Begović (6.9), Aké (7.7), Terry (7.0), Zouma (6.7), Pedro (7.9), Chalobah (6.8), Fàbregas (7.5), Moses (7.1), Hazard (6.1), Costa (7.2), Willian (7.0)
Azpilicueta (7.0), Kanté (7.1), Loftus-Cheek (6.5)
