Chelsea player ratings vs Bournemouth: Woeful Mykhailo Mudryk sums up painfully average Blues in dire draw

Comments (0)
The Ukrainian winger had another afternoon to forget as the Blues were held to a dismal 0-0 draw on the south coast.

Mykhailo Mudryk endured a torrid afternoon as Chelsea were forced to settle for a point on the road against a spirited Bournemouth side in a 0-0 draw.

The Ukraine international, signed for over £88m, barely got himself involved in the game and wilted as it wore on, before being hooked on the hour mark.

Chelsea had a number of chances - Raheem Sterling saw a free-kick bounce agonisingly off the post and onto the line, without crossing it, while Nicolas Jackson and Conor Gallagher both missed gilt-edged opportunities - but Bournemouth actually looked more likely to win the game late on.

It is yet another performance without any real cohesion for the Blues, who appear to be in some trouble. GOAL rates Chelsea's players from the Vitality Stadium...

  1. Goalkeeper & Defence

    Goalkeeper & Defence

    Robert Sanchez (7/10):

    Made a superb early save from Dango Ouattara and denied Dominic Solanke with his feet in the second half. Always in control. Chelsea's best player, which might be a worry given the opposition.

    Malo Gusto (6/10):

    Full of energy down the right but took a knock in the second half and required treatment. A better attacker than a defender, but he looks settled at Chelsea already.

    Thiago Silva (6/10):

    Gave the Blues a scare when he landed awkwardly in the first half but recovered. Always the most assured defender in an unsettled backline but was walking gingerly at full-time.

    Axel Disasi (5/10):

    Dealt reasonably well with the physicality of Dominic Solanke but made a wild challenge in the second half that saw him booked, and was often rash in coming forward.

    Levi Colwill (5/10):

    Seemed slightly uncomfortable at left-back early on but he grew into the game. Scored but saw his strike ruled out for offside. Subbed for Chilwell.

  2. Midfield


    Enzo Fernandez (5/10):

    A midfield metronome, consistently finding his team-mates. Couldn't really make an impact further forward, though, and was subbed with 10 minutes left.

    Conor Gallagher (5/10):

    Busy in midfield and forced a good save from Neto in the first half but his influence waned as the game became stretched.

    Lesley Ugochukwu (4/10):

    Made his full debut following his summer move from Rennes. Was overrun in the second half, but he needed some support in midfield and it didn't come.

  3. Attack


    Raheem Sterling (6/10):

    Booked early on but lively. Hit a free-kick that was millimetres from going over the line and he shifted to the left after Mudryk's withdrawal. Positive and always willing to run; Chelsea's most effective attacker.

    Nicolas Jackson (4/10):

    Hit the post early on with a long-range strike. Fired one effort into the crowd as he comically fell over. Some great approach play but his finishing leaves so much to be desired.

    Mykhailo Mudryk (3/10):

    Started brightly but wilted after he was booked for a poor challenge on Max Aarons. His confidence has taken a battering and it shows. Subbed just after the hour, and looks nothing like an £88m player.

  4. Subs & Manager

    Subs & Manager

    Cole Palmer (6/10):

    On for Mudryk and forced a superb save from Neto late on. Some of his touches carry real elegance.

    Ian Maatsen (5/10)

    On for Fernandez. Slotted in and did what he could with the little time he had.

    Ben Chilwell (5/10)

    On for Colwill. Tried to drive down the left but couldn't create anything.

    Mauricio Pochettino (4/10):

    Had to deal with a raft of injuries but Chelsea look so painfully average. They've brought in so many players that cohesion will take time, but he needs to find a way to gel this team together.
