PSG 2 Chelsea 1: Player ratings as Hazard disappoints, Mikel scores

Player ratings as Chelsea suffer a 2-1 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at Paris Saint-Germain

Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois Showed great reactions to deny Lucas. Culpable for Edinson Cavani’s winner as the striker slotted his finish between Courtois’s legs. 6/10

Branislav Ivanovic Captained Chelsea in the absence of injured John Terry. Bravely blocked Matuidi’s second-half attempt. 7

Abdul Baba Rahman He struggled to contain Ibrahimovic and the rest of the PSG attack when targeted by Laurent Blanc’s players. 7

Gary Cahill A nervous start to the last-16 clash and he was booked early in the first half. Recovered and performed well despite a lack of first-team football in recent months. 6

Cesar Azpilicueta A tough evening with Maxwell supporting Blaise Matuidi down the left wing. 6

John Obi Mikel At fault for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener before the midfielder equalised minutes before half-time with a rare Chelsea goal. 7

Cesc Fàbregas A solid performance from the former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder. 7

Eden Hazard Playing in front of his potential future employers, Hazard was anonymous for most of the first leg at Parc des Princes. It could result in a couple more pounds off his price tag if he completes his much-anticipated move to PSG in the summer. Replaced with 20 minutes to play. 4

Pedro Rodríguez He carried out the defensive side of his duties well but couldn’t trouble the PSG defence. 6

Diego Costa Denied by an excellent save in the first half with the goal at the striker’s mercy. Thwarted by Kevin Trapp again at the start of the second half. 7

Willian He couldn’t hit the target despite his excellent precision from set-pieces this season. Typically energetic but no end result. 7

Substitutes

Oscar Energetic upon his introduction from the bench. 6
