Chelsea's severely shaky run of form under Frank Lampard continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw by a well-drilled Aston Villa side at Stamford Bridge.

But who were the best and worst performers from both sides?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Anwar El Ghazi: 7.3

The Dutchman is on a bit of a hot streak at the moment, scoring his fifth goal in five games to draw Villa back level.

He was in the right spot at the back post to slot his finish through the legs of Edouard Mendy and he also worked tirelessly, wining 1/1 tackles, 1/1 aerial duels and four of his nine ground duels.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Christian Pulisic: 6.3

After coming back from injury it's safe to say it's not happening for the American at the moment.

Chelsea's attacking problems are renowned without Hakim Ziyech in the side and he isn't providing any answers.

He completed one dribble and won just two of his 14 ground duels. Callum Hudson-Odoi, despite starting well, equally struggled on the opposite side.

STAR MAN

Matty Cash: 7.5

The Villa right-back looked to be up against it early on with Ben Chilwell and Christian Pulisic making good ground on his side. But he stuck to his task extremely and dealt with the latter in particular particularly well.

And when Villa had the opportunity to deliver from wide Cash did not deliver, floating his cross onto the foot of El Ghazi for the equaliser.

Eyebrows were raised at his large transfer fee but he has been one of Villa's most consistent performers, winning 2/3 tackles and five of his eight duels.
