John Obi Mikel, DM, Rating: 6.5/10
Bailed out Fernando Torres' turnover by committing a smart professional foul on Alex Teixeira. That decision stopped what could have been a dangerous counterattack from Shakhtar Donetsk. The Nigerian was fortunate that referee Carlos Velasco didn't pull out the yellow card.
Great headed goal—yes, you read right—Mikel put the ball in the back of the net. Alas, it was offside.
It's not his fault if David Luiz goes walk-about and then the Blues are exposed on the counter by a quick-passing Shakhtar side.
Ramires, DM Rating: 7.5/10
Perfectly timed tackle to stop Fernandinho charging into the heart of Chelsea's defence. Great run to catch Darijo Srna out and should have won the Blues a penalty because he was tripped over.
If referee Velasco didn't award the spot-kick because he believed the Brazilian dove, then book Ramires.
Only mistake, which was a big one, from an otherwise superb referee.
Won back possession 10 times. Rock in midfield. Some great runs. Bailed out Luiz several times.
Juan Mata, RAM, Rating: 6/10
Defence splitting through ball forced goalkeeper Yaroslav Rakitskiy to act as an emergency sweeper, whose headed clearance led to Oscar's wonderful piece of magic.
Mata provided a great free kick for Mikel to score, only for it to be ruled offside.
Pin-point corner to Victor Moses to claim an undeserved win.
Oscar, CAM, Rating: 6/10
World-class technique to score that outrageous goal. It was like Dejan Stanković's strike against Schalke.
Impact was subdued because of Shakhtar's dominance.
Eden Hazard, LAM, Rating: 4.5/10
Spent the large majority of the game as an auxiliary defender. Attempted to contain Shakhtar's right-sided attacks to no avail.
Defensive contributions curbed attacking input.
