2. ROSS BARKLEY (7.5, sub)

Minutes: 22
Touches: 26
Passes: 15/16
Shots: 1*/2
Tackles: 1

Barkley gave the ball away with his very first touch, with most of the rest that followed, he fulfilled Sarri’s decree of trying to make a difference and get Chelsea at least a point — in fact, he was the only player in the entire match to average more than 1 touch/minute. And with his final touch, he accomplished said goal (literally), being at the right place at the right time after David Luiz’s header hit the post and Antonio Rüdiger’s follow-up header prompted one of De Gea’s multiple magnificent saves.

3. N’GOLO KANTÉ (6.8)

Touches: 57
Passes: 39/42

Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 6+2+1

Speaking of magnificent saves, De Gea made sure that he would not get beaten by Kanté for the third time at Stamford Bridge, palming away a low shot that looked to be arrowing right into the corner of the net. Maybe next time, N’Golo!
