Kepa: Made a crucial save on the 15th minute. Had a good match. But in the penalties, he gave Chelsea the qualification for the final, unlike the EFL Cup against Manchester City. 7.5/10

Azpalicueta: An okay match, played as a center back at the end of the match. A poor penalty from Chelsea’s captain, weak and easy to save. 5/10

Luiz: Was at fault for Frankfurt’s first goal, a defender at Chelsea should be committing such fatal mistakes in a semi-final. However, his crucial clearance from the goal line was remarkable. 5/10

Christensen: Was able to do better, especially in Frankfurt’s goal. Left injured at the end of the match. 5.5/10

Subs

 

Pedro: Didn’t do much. 5/10

Zappacosta: Replaced Azpilicueta on the right side after Chelsea’s captain replaced Christensen as a center back. Made a crucial save in the last seconds of the first half of the extra time. 6/10

Barkley: Was close to scoring. 5/10

Higuain: Couldn’t really break into Frankfurt’s defense. 5/10

Maruzio Sarri (manager): Chelsea are still struggling to score. If the transfer ban isn’t lifted and Eden Hazard leaves, Sarri may better resign before he gets sacked. His subs were late as well. 5/10
