Tim Krul (6.5) - Had a good game bar one mistake. The problem is though that, that mistake led to their second goal. He came for something he couldn't reach and the ball ended up in the net. You do feel sorry for keepers sometimes.
Danny Simpson (7) - Did his job for the most part. Showed some good touches and can't be blamed for any of their goals. Does need some competition though.
Steven Taylor (8.5) - I thought he was outstanding and fully deserved getting the late equaliser. Won a lot in the air, read the game well and showed many today why he was so highly rated by many before losing his way a bit over the last 2 years.
Fabricio Coloccini (8) - Another player who played well today. Despite allowing Ivanovic to win the header in the build up to their first goal, he did not allow Chelsea to have too many opportunities after that and his partnership with Taylor was impressive.
Jose Enrique (8) - Came close to being my man of the match as he gave a very good performance today. Many question whether he'll be with us next season but he played very well. Won many challenges, went forward quite a bit and linked up fairly well with young Ferguson. He will definitely be missed should he choose to leave.
Peter Lovenkrands (6.5) - Played in an unfamiliar role but worked very hard and made some good runs. Can't say he stood out but he was involved in getting us the free kick which led to our first goal and he certainly contributed to us getting a point.
Joey Barton (7.5) - Despite giving the ball away quite a bit today, he was very committed and got stuck in, which we needed since Tiote wasn't there. Good captains performance probably describes his performance best.
Ryan Taylor (6.5) - For someone filling in, he did reasonably well. He broke up a few of Chelsea's attacks and set up both goals. One being from a rather poor free kick whilst the other was from a good corner.
Shane Ferguson (7.5) - Another promising performance from him. Linked up nicely with Enrique and went forward with real enthusiasm. Went off with an injury but not before putting in a solid shift.
Jonas Gutierrez (7.5) - For someone who's played in all our league games this season he showed little signs of fatigue. He worked hard and scored our first goal, even if he knew very little thereof. Has had some good form of late so its nice that he scored, no matter how fortuitous it was.
Shola Ameobi (6) - Today was another mixed bag from Shola. Did some good things but some awful things too. I'd start Ranger in the next game if it were up to me.
Kazenga Lua Lua (6.5) - Failed to have a big impact but did do well on one occasion when he took on Ivanovic.
Nile Ranger (7) - Won a superb header to assist the late equaliser. Perhaps deserves a start next week.
Sammy Ameobi (7.5) - I was very impressed with the younger Ameobi. Certainly showed no fear and put himself about in the few minutes he was on for.
Man of the Match - Steven Taylor
