Player Ratings: Chelsea 1-1 Aston Villa (4-3 Pens) - Youthful Villa fall short at the final hurdle

Jed Steer: 6/10

Was kept fairly busy on Wednesday evening, with Chelsea having seven shots on target and made some key saves in the second half. Had an unlucky time in the penalty shootout, with Steer failing to save any of Chelsea’s shootout attempts.

Matty Cash: 8/10

Provided a real threat going forward and setup Cameron Archer’s goal in the 64th minute.

Axel Tuanzebe: 7/10

Controlled the Villa backline with purpose and kept the likes of Romelu Lukaku quiet from the moment the striker was substituted on the pitch in the 76th minute.

Kortney Hause: 7/10

Came into the side and did not look out of place whatsoever. Provided ample cover and support for Ashley Young’s occasional run up the left of the pitch.

Ashley Young: 5/10

Struggled to make an impression on Wednesday evening, with a number of misplaced balls and failed to provide much positive link-up play with Anwar El Ghazi.

Morgan Sanson: 7/10

A tough evening for the French midfielder as the injury bug struck him again after 42 minutes on the pitch. Prior to his injury, Sanson’s movement and delivery in the midfield provided plenty of opportunities going forward.

Marvelous Nakamba: 8/10

Aside from the penalty shootout miss, the defensive midfielder was fantastic in Villa’s own half and limited Chelsea’s attacking chances in the middle of the pitch. Another promising display for Nakamba.

Bertrand Traore: 7/10

The tricky winger proved to cause Chelsea a number of issues throughout his 64 minutes on the pitch. Certainly made an argument as to why he could potentially feature on Saturday against Manchester United.

Emi Buendia: 6/10

A slow day for the Argentinian midfielder, who featured for the first time since his return from international duty. Struggled to make a real impact on the game and was often marked out by Chelsea’s midfield.

Anwar El Ghazi: 5/10

Aside from converting the penalty, the winger had a quiet evening, with his most memorable opportunity being a shot on goal that should have been a simple pass across goal to setup Cameron Archer for a tap-in.

Cameron Archer: 8/10

A very impressive display from the 19-year-old, who’s creative and direct runs down the pitch provided a number of promising opportunities for Villa. Could have easily scored two goals in the first half of the match, but did extremely well to head home Matty Cash’s cross into the top left corner of the Chelsea goal.


Carney Chukwuemeka: 7/10

Came onto the pitch in the 42nd minute to replace the injured Morgan Sanson, providing a creative spark on a number occasions.

Philogene-Bidace: N/A

Ezri Konsa: N/A

MAN OF THE MATCH: Cameron Archer

The young Villan caused the Chelsea defense issues on a number of occasions and could have arguably had his second hat-trick of the Carabao Cup campaign if he converted his two efforts in the first half of the game. Certainly made a case as to why he should be the third choice striking option at Aston Villa.
