Chelsea player ratings: Ross Barkley’s huge impact as Billy Gilmour struggles in FA Cup win

Willy Caballero

Pretty busy with the ball at his feet and made one good save in the first half to push away a chance from range.

Had little to do in the second half as Leicester rarely troubled his goal. However, one poor moment when he flapped at a cross that was then blocked. 6

Reece James

Struggled to get forward and only had one chance to get the ball into the box from a free-kick in the first half. However, defensively was strong in the tackle. 5

Antonio Rudiger

Generally solid in open play, with Chelsea playing a high line he dealt with the threat of Jamie Vardy pretty well, with the Englishman getting beyond him just once. Was frustrated with the play in front of him.

Massive in the opening goal when he burst forward and set up the attack. Pretty comfortable for much of the game. 7

Kurt Zouma

Another who looked a bit rusty at times in the first half, with some poor passes and looking sloppy at the back. However, he grew into the game.

Became a lot more confident, both in possession and out of it. Formed a good partnership with Rudiger and the pair kept Vardy very quiet. 7

Lacked real ambition to get forwards in the first half. Played a good role in the Pulisic chance, but offered little to the Blues on the left.

It was much the same in the second half, with the Italy international not able to get forward, but holding his position instead. 5

N’Golo Kante

In the defensive position again and broke up play at times. However, not great on the ball and didn’t really get the play moving forward enough.

The impetus of the half-time substitutes seem to give Kante a lift as well and he was driving forward better with ball. Held his position well at times to break up the play. 6
