1. ANTONIO RUDIGER (5.4)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 132
Passes: 96/111
Shots: 0/1
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 4+1+1
Clearances: 8
Aerial duels won: 4

Well, at least Rudiger’s back, so we’ve got that going for us, which is nice. He’s now made it through back-to-back 90 minutes, so it’s probably safe to say he’s fully recovered from his knee and groin injuries. Now he just needs to get back to his best form, and save the world, but you know ... baby steps.

2. KURT ZOUMA (5.2)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 135
Passes: 97/117
Shots: 0/1
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 2+2+3
Clearances: 7
Aerial duels won: 9

Zouma also played decently well, but we don’t have to look too far beyond the fact that he and Rudiger led the game in touches — and it was not close! — to see just how poorly the team played.

3. N’GOLO KANTE (5.0)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 55
Passes: 39/43
Take-ons: 0/1
Tackles+INTs+Blocks: 1+2+2

Regardless of what happens, Kante is still most adorable, and that’s always worth at least a third spot.
