CHELSEA stars yet again failed to prove their worth as they were smashed at Old Trafford by Manchester United. The Blues were comfortably beaten 4-1 as the Red Devils confirmed their spot in the Champions League next season. 7Chelsea were uninspiring against Manchester UnitedCredit: Getty 7Conor Gallagher failed to command the midfieldCredit: Getty 7Mykhailo Mudryk looked out of his depth at Old TraffordCredit: AFP 7Lewis Hall was one positive for Chelsea on the wingCredit: Getty Mykhailo Mudryk continued to struggle to prove himself after the club spent £88.5million to sign him from Shakhtar Donetsk in January as he spurned multiple chances. Conor Gallagher another player that failed to impress, despite his constant running, the England international was unable to produce any moments of quality. However, Lewis Hall was one bright spark for Frank Lampard’s side as he looked dangerous at times, cutting in from the wing. The youngster should have had an assist after putting the ball on a plate for Kai Havertz, only for the German to put his header wide. Joao Felix was also able to walk out with some pride after netting a late consolation goal after coming on as a second-half substitute. Here is how SunSports’ Phil Thomas rated the Chelsea players. KEPA – 6 Was left without a prayer for all four goals, but did at least make impressive stops to deny Eriksen and McTominay. FREE BETS AND SIGN UP DEALS – BEST NEW CUSTOMER OFFERS CESAR AZPILACUETA – 6 Superb sliding tackle to stop Martial adding a second when he had no right to win the ball. Never gave up what became a lost cause. Most read in Football TREVOR CHALOBAH – 5 Actually didn’t have a shocker, but can hardly claim bragging rights on the back of a hiding. WES FOFANA – 4 Nowhere near Casemiro for the opener, gave away the penalty and passed straight to Fernandes for the third. Enough said. LEWIS HALL – 7 7Lewis Hall managed to have a good game despite the resultCredit: AP His emergence has been a rare bright spot for Chelsea his season. Teed up a couple of sitters for Mudryk and Havertz – who both missed. NONI MADUEKE – 5 Constantly got the ball in space on the right. If only he had been able to do something productive with it. ENZO FERNANDEZ -7 A class act, and showed it once again. Never shirked wanting the ball and sprayed some great passes around – especially to tee up Gallagher. CARNEY CHUKWUEMEKA – 6 Fizzed an early strike a yard over and knocked some intelligent passes in a decent enough performance. MYKHAYLO MUDRYK – 4 7Mudryk should have scoredCredit: PA Missed an absolute sitter early on – £88.5m clearly doesn’t buy you what it once did. No surprise to see him hooked. CONOR GALLAGHER – 5 Lively, always on the go, but also guilty of a horrible miss after Fernandez played him in. KAI HAVERTZ – 4 Such a stylish footballer, but not a centre forward, fluffed a simple header and let Casemiro get away from him for the opener. SUBS 7Joao Felix did well enough to score in his cameo off the benchCredit: Getty JOAO FELIX (for Havertz, 63): Caused more panic in United’s defence in two minutes than Havertz managed in over an hour. Fitting that he got the consolation 7 CHRISTIAN PULISIC (for Mudryk, 63): Guilty of a pretty cheap shot by jumping into De Gea. The fact it was his only contribution said a lot. 5 D.FOFANA (for Gallagher, 81) 5, ZIYECH (for Madueke, 81) 5, LOFTUS-CHEEK (for Chukwuemeka, 81): 5 Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly, Alfie Gilchrist and Édouard Mendy were unused subs.
