Most Read

6 Alex Tettey: Competed well in midfield though distribution was a bit inconsistent.

6 Bradley Johnson: Found the midfield battle a tough one, picked up needless booking.

7 Robert Snodgrass: Looked the most likely source of a goalscoring chance once again.

6 Wes Hoolahan: So much good work on the ball but not enough options ahead of him.

6 Anthony Pilkington: Started brightly against Azpilicueta before fading in the second half.

6 Grant Holt: The usual battling display but barely a chance in 90 minutes.

Subs: Steve Morison (for Pilkington) 5, Jonny Howson (for Johnson) 5, Elliott Bennett (for Hoolahan) 5

• Chelsea:

6 Petr Cech: Had barely a save to make even though City pressed hard at times.

6 Cesar Azpilicueta: Looked better going forward than at the back when under pressure.

7 Gary Cahill: Gave very little away and kept his defence pretty well organised.

7 Branislav Ivanovic: Looks one of the most improved players in the whole Chelsea side.

6 Ashley Cole: Might have scored a spectacular own goal with his late clearance.

7 David Luiz: Looks very accomplished in his new role – except his shooting.

6 John Obi Mikel: Solid enough in midfield on his recall, before an early departure.

7 Victor Moses: A tricky customer on the flanks but missed one good opening.

8 Juan Mata: Great goal and a joy to watch, if only he isn’t playing against you.

7 Oscar: Justified his recall, had a hand in goal and looked quite dangerous.

5 Fernando Torres: Another very quiet afternoon for the �50m man at Carrow Road.

Subs: Frank Lampard (for Obi Mikel) 5, Eden Hazard (for Moses) 5, Nathan Ake (for Mata) 5
