Chelsea hosted fourth-placed Watford in a top of the table clash at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Pedro scored from a corner to hand the Blues a lead, only to see Abdoulaye Doucoure score an equalizer seconds before the end of the first half in London.

Here are the tops and flops from the game at half-time.

Flops:

Richarlison: The Brazilian looked like doing too much. Looked unlike himself.

Alvaro Morata: The Spaniard didn’t look strong enough on the ball following the return to injury. Had an okayish half.

Troy Deeney: The scorer against Arsenal didn’t get too much service and was often left frustrated up front.

Roberto Pereyra: The former Juventus man looked indecisive around the box and lacked passing incisiveness.

Tops:

Pedro: Looked like a complete performance. Scored the goal. Nearly scored another one.

Eden Hazard: Looked like his usual self. Was taking on defenders and beating them.

Abdoulaye Doucoure: Has been a revelation this season. Looked like wall in front of the back four.

Adrian Mariappa: Despite having conceded, the Jamaican stood upto the task of physically dominating Morata.
