The Ukraine forward was a major disappointment as the Blues underwhelmed against Unai Emery's team, losing 2-0 at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea have dropped into the bottom half of the Premier League table as the pressure continues to mount on manager Graham Potter after they suffered a 2-0 home defeat against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ollie Watkins and John McGinn fired the visitors to victory, lifting them above the Blues in the table, who have dropped to 11th.

Mykhailo Mudryk passed up two great chances to rescue Chelsea but fluffed his lines in yet another disappointing display by the Ukraine international, who is still searching for his first goal since joining the club in January.

GOAL rates Chelsea's players from Stamford Bridge...

    Goalkeeper & Defence

    Kepa Arrizabalaga (6/10):

    Beaten from distance once again as McGinn's effort sailed past him and into the corner.

    Reece James (5/10):

    Another defensively tame performance as he was caught ball watching and out of position a few times.

    Kalidou Koulibaly (6/10):

    Chelsea's best defender in the game. He made some strong tackles to keep Villa at bay.

    Marc Cucurella (4/10):

    At fault for the opening goal with a bad header that sent Watkins in to finish.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek (5/10):

    Saw enough of the ball but did not make much of an impact before going off early in the second half.

    Enzo Fernandez (6/10):

    Tried to keep the ball circulating and support his team's attack but let down by his team-mates.

    Mateo Kovacic (6/10):

    Tried to get his side back into the game with a few long-range shots but could not lift his team.

    Ben Chilwell (7/10)

    Dangerous in attack as he got into the box a lot and hit the post on one occasion before having a goal disallowed.

    Kai Havertz (6/10):

    Had a few chances on goal and dropped back to link up with team-mates but nothing really worked for him.

    Joao Felix (7/10):

    Tried his best to create some danger for the visitors but was unable to find the net.

    Mykhaylo Mudryk (5/10):

    Had a shot saved from close range and then ruined a great chance with a weak shot straight at Emi Martinez.

  4. Subs & Manager

    Subs & Manager

    N'Golo Kante (6/10):

    Made his first appearance since mid-August and got forward a lot to help create some trouble.

    Noni Madueke (6/10):

    Came on before the hour mark and tried to make something happen on the wing, but Villa were too strong.

    Conor Gallagher (5/10):

    Introduced for the last 10 minutes but had little impact on the game.

    Christian Pulisic (6/10):

    A late addition, he had an effort saved by Martinez late on and looked lively in his brief appearance.

    Graham Potter (4/10):

    A poor set up from the coach, whose team looked weak defensively since the beginning and were not as threatening as they should have been with Felix, Havertz and Mudryk all in the line up.
