Petr Cech
Didn’t have a great deal to do. Made a super save from Ferdinand but spilled Berbatov’s shot for the United goal. 6 6.2
John Terry
Not his normal inspirational self, but did little wrong. 6 5.5
Ricardo Carvalho
Went off early with an injury. 6 4.6
Ashley Cole
Caught out of position a couple of times and United did get plenty of joy on their right. 5 5.8
Jose Bosingwa
Solid in defence, always willing in attack. 6 6.1
Florent Malouda
Threatened on a couple of occasions. Replaced at half-time. 5 4.8
Frank Lampard
Couple of moments of inspiration but didn’t really change the game for Chelsea. 6 5.6
John Mikel Obi
Pretty anonymous and not really an influence on the game. 5 5.6
Michael Ballack
Gradually grew in influence and one pass for Joe Cole was a peach. 6 5.8
Injured in the warm-up and didn’t play. 0 3.8
Nicolas Anelka
Worked hard but missed a glorious chance and that’s how strikers are judged. 5 4.2
Joe Cole
Always a danger to the United defence. Popped up all over the shop. 7 5.5
Steady in defence and one block of a Fletcher shot was inspirational. 6 6.2
Salomon Kalou
Popped up to save Chelsea’s bacon with that late header. 6 6.8
Didier Drogba
Second-half substitute but never really produced the influence Chelsea craved. 5 5.3
