Voted for Essien, seemed every time I looked at the TV he or Mikel had the ball. Just had a look on the Guardian chalkboards and they had 96 for 92 completions and 106 from 103 completions between them, I know we had a lot of possession but those numbers are enormous.

Thought Essien was at the heart of all our good work part. first half when some of his passing was fantastic, I recall one 50 yard ball he sat on the foot of Ashley Cole to the left that was out of this world.

Mikel could have claimed it as well of course, he has come along well and perhaps being out and out first choice has given him the confidence to really shine.

Also appreciated the efforts of Malouda and Ashley Cole once again showing us why we have the best left side in football today.

I thought Alex was exceptional today. He didn't let anything past him, tackled well, distributed well from defence - everything you could've asked for him he did superbly. Give him the #6!

Honourable mentions to Malouda, Essien and Mikel today. Mikel hardly put a foot wrong, Essien played brilliantly in the first hour, maybe faded slightly in the last 30, and Malouda was just Malouda, brilliant as he has been.

Close call between Cole and Malouda, went for Malouda simply because we were really static in the first half, not moving well and he was the only one doing the runs together with Cole to open them up and resulted in the goal as well.

Mikel and Terry not too far behind.

Mikel, Terry and Alex were the pick of the players for me. I've voted for Mikel. Looked very composed, and made up for Lampard's mistakes, which could have cost us the game (by that I'm mainly referring to the careless passing, the missed penalty is a seperate issue).

EDIT : Ashley deserves a mention. He adds an extra dimension to our attack. Can't be overlooked.

These posts sum up what I said in Match Chat. Overall a solid team performance, with no clear cut Man of the Match. Ashley, Alex, Essien, Mikel, Nico, and Malouda all good.

Malouda faded a little, and Nico was only productive in flashes, but those flashes were brillliant.

Only poor performance was Lampard, but the illumination that he's injured certainly sheds light on his past couple of performances.

Very close between Mikel and Essien, but I'll go for Mikel. I really hope he flourishes with a good run in the team this year; plus he's looking great alongside Essien.

Also, I think Carlo got all his subs spot on. Plus Sturridge looks amazing everytime I see him. Fast, eager, great control and uses both feet with ease!

Voted for Alex, Essien next then Mikel - I thought Malouda overall had a poor game today obviously apart from a great finish, Lampard too wasn't great - aside from the good spells and nice movement in the first half I think most players didn't play 100% as there was no need to!!

Mikel for me. It's a shame that he gave the ball away for their shot that hit the bar, as apart from that I thought he really was quite brilliant today. Incredibly confident on the ball and a fantastic range of passing. More of that please.

he play good, because he is scaring ramires to take his place in first team :rolleyes:

you couldnt be more wrong.

he's playing well because he has found confidence in himself and has been given opportunity to show his talent,i dont doubt that he is aware that ramires will most likely feature in his position alot but he's just doing his best for the team and atm we cant fault him

I've been really impressed with him thus far this season.

I voted for Cole myself but I have to agree with ya I like what I have seen from Mikel thus far in the season. Be interesting to see if he can carry that play over against some more rated competition, would definitely be a positive sign of Maturity for Mikel.
