We didn't get a perfect performance, which was needed to win this match. However I felt GC was pretty solid. Same w/ a lot of Blues TBH, but just wasn't good enough to get a result today. I am happy w/ the result, knowing CFC can up their game if they need to make it to the next round

Defence played well and I thought Fabregas worked hard and was decent but far & away MOTM for me was Willian. Ran & ran and so many times took the pressure off the defence by taking the ball away, only to either get fouled or for a team mate to lose the ball (usually costa).

Thought Cahill, Pedro, Willian and Courtois all played well. 

 

Courtois did ok until the Cavani goal. That was a bad mistake to be beaten there and it could end up costing us the tie.

Went for Rahman although thought Ivanovic and Cahill were also very good. Proved to us that he can play at the top level and looked very composed going forward and defending and should have had a hell of an assist. Think Courtois is getting too much praise, should have saved their second and aside from Di Maria's shot spilled a number of chances that could easily have been turned in if PSG had anyone following in.

I went for Baba. Don't actually think that he was the best player, since he made a few mistakes. But overall his input was so refreshing and it really transformed our side. 

He maybe never will be defensively as sound as Azpi but he is a player we need because of what he can add to the offensive impact of our team.

Ivanovic was caught playing Cavani on side for that goal so it was more his fault than Courtois. There's not much more he could've done, got out quick, closed the angle and spread himself its unlucky that the ball went under him. To blame him for that goal is crazy.

 

For me Baba MOTM. Refreshing to have natural full backs for once and not players out of position (RB playing LB and CB playing RB).

I just cant give it to Cahill, he kept giving the ball away to them and inviting pressure on us. His biggest problem is that he invites players to attack him and then makes very good last ditch tackles to be fair to him.

 

Gave it to Willian, his speed and dribbling skills are just incredible, he could be one of the top players in the worlds if he added more goals from open play, love the man. Dave was magnificent aswell defensively. Pedro I thought was brilliant but should have been substituted soon after half time, he couldn't get back for 15 minutes in the second half and Maxwell had so many chances to create a goal down our right side because of this.

Abdul Rahman Baba was by far our best player. 

 

His passing out of the back and out of tight situations was the catalyst to so many of our attacks. 

 

He was solid defensively also. 

 

Too bad he will likely be back on the bench once Terry is fit.... shame.

Went with baba.  With him we showed an attacking element down our left that has been missing all season.  Also put in a good match on the defensive side.  Overall a very good performance from him, and unlucky not to come away with a beautiful assist. 

 

Willian is a close second.  Alleviated pressure all game and started the majority of our counters.

 

On another note, I have been very harsh on Hazard.  Simply because I can't fathom why he is playing so poorly.  Have we seen the best of him last year?  Has he given up on the blues?  It's so frustrating to see his potential go unfulfilled game in-game out.  We desperately need the old Hazard back.  

 

On a bit more positive note, Willian appears to be the new Hazard
