Ruthless Chelsea took advantage of Manchester City’s latest slip to extend their lead to seven points at the top of the Premier League - but it was Branislav Ivanovic who walked away with the man of the match award.
Eden Hazard’s opener and a second half rocket from Ivanovic, who topped the ratings in our poll with an average score of 8.2/10, gave the Blues all three points with a 2-1 win over struggling Aston Villa.
Ivanovic has remarkably now netted five times in his last seven appearances against the Villains and has put Jose Mourinho’s side truly in the driving seat in the title race.
The Serbian defender was rewarded for his efforts by you, the fans, as he finished ahead of second-placed Hazard who racked up a score of 7.6/10.
His fellow countryman Nemanja Matic was third on your list with a score of 7.5/10, with Thibuat Courtois and Willian tied for fourth place on 7/10.
