It wasn't his day.
Chelsea struggled to get themselves forward, and a lack of vertical movement hurt them—attacks were few and far between, and Manchester City rarely looked troubled in defence.
Ramires, playing on the right side of midfield, was deployed in a wing role but played largely as a second right-back.
His explosiveness was limited, and he went from potential key for Chelsea to a wasted outlet.
His touch was off on the day and didn't cover himself in glory, but without either of the Blues' Brazilians accompanying Frank Lampard in the midfield pivot, they looked rather limp.
