In the midfield, Ryan Gravenberch (4.5/10) was poor before he came off mid-way through the first half. Alexis Mac Allister (6.5/10), failed to provide the creativity from the midfield. Wataru End (7/10) was good with his work rate. Among the attackers for Liverpool, Luis Diaz (7.5/10) looked the most threatening. Apart from hitting the bar, Cody Gakpo (5.5/10) was invisible in this Chelsea vs Liverpool game mostly. Harvey Elliot (6.5/10) created a few moments but was silent most of the time.

For substitutes, Joe Gomez (5/10) came on in the 28th minute due to an ankle injury to Gravenberch causing the Reds to lose their shape.
