Pablo Hernandez celebrates his goal with his teammates

Match Report: Hernandez makes weary Blues pay for off-day

Swansea City 1 Chelsea 1

<b>CHELSEA...</b><br/>
<p><b>PETR CECH</b></p>
<p>Powerless to stop the goals and made excellent save just before Hernandez's winner. Good distribution. 6/10</p>
<br/>
<p><b>BRANISLAV IVANOVIC</b></p>
<p>Reliable performance at right-back, before a red card which was not just his fault. 5</p>
<br/>
<p><b>GARY CAHILL</b></p>
<p>Had to make a few flying blocks in the first half, although ideally he would not have to. 5</p><br/>
<p><b>DAVID LUIZ</b></p>
<p>Never looked fully fit, struggling against pace on the turn. He barely won a single header against Van Persie. 4</p><br/>
<p><b>ASHLEY COLE</b></p>
<p>Relentlessly hard-working, and looked the fittest player on the pitch by the end, though had a tough first half. 6</p>
