REECE JAMES shined at Old Trafford but Chelsea still walked away with just a point.
The Blues dominated Manchester United but wasted too many chances in front of goal.

Marcos Alonso’s opener was cancelled out moments later by Cristiano Ronaldo as the points were shared.
Here Jack Figg rates the Blues performers.
Edouard Mendy – 6
Given little to do bar pick the ball out of his net. Had no chance in stopping Ronaldo’s strike.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 5
Played Ronaldo on for United’s goal which was really the host’s only real attack all night until a goalmouth scramble at the end.
Thiago Silva – 6
Made some excellent passes over the top to try and unlock United’s defence. Was left largely unbothered elsewhere.
Antonio Rudiger – 6
Most influential on the ball, carrying it out from the back, passing forward or shooting from range.

Reece James – 8
Deployed back at wingback and reaped the rewards. His cross led to Alonso’s opener and hit the post right at the end.
N’Golo Kante – 6
Energetic throughout, driving with the ball and creating chances. But did give away the ball which led to United’s equaliser.
Jorginho – 6
Assured performance in the centre of midfield, covering well when needed as Kante bombed forward.
Marcos Alonso – 7
Superb volley to put Chelsea in the lead but had little major impact after. Much more comfortable at wingback opposed to a back four.

Mason Mount – 6
Lively playing as the No10 between Havertz and Werner, linking up well with the Germans and his wingbacks.
Timo Werner – 5
Showed great energy in the fast half getting in behind but lacked creativity on the ball thereafter.
Kai Havertz – 4
Missed two massive chances, missing a one-on-one and header. Should have also played in Werner, who was through on goal.
Christian Pulisic (for Werner 70mins) – 5
Got on the ball but made no real impact off the bench.
Romelu Lukaku (for Havertz (70mins) – 5
Held the ball up well but had no goalscoring opportunities.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (for Kante 82mins) – 5
Just about had enough time to show his face.
