The Chelsea goalkeeper had very little to do but might feel disappointed with his weak attempt to keep out Streller's winner.
Strong interceptions and impressive on the ball as he looked to play into the midfield - but always has a mistake in him and his role was questionable for Basel's equaliser.
Dependable defensively and rarely troubled, although he could have offered more of an attacking threat on the right. Dangerous from set-pieces and went close with two second-half headers.
A tough evening for the England left-back up against the pace and trickery of Salah. Mistimed some challenges and caught ball-watching as Basel looked to play the ball in behind him.
Made a couple of key interceptions in the first half and was generally solid, especially up against the size and strength of Streller.

The Dutchman was perhaps a surprise starter and didn't have the best of evenings. A little off the pace as he was booked for a late challenge and showed a heavy touch on occasions. Kept his passing simple and worked hard defensively.
On the fringes for much of the game in a deep-lying role but produced a perfectly executed pass to set up Oscar's opener.
The £30m Brazilian will improve but made a solid enough debut for his new club. Stationed mainly on the right and produced some classy passes and dribbles. Will give him the benefit of the doubt for nasty looking stray elbow on Safari. Replaced by Mata after 67 minutes.
The Belgian showed flashes of brilliance but his final delivery was uncharacteristically wayward, highlighted by a sliced effort in the first half.
Chelsea's shining light in a drab, uninspiring team performance. Gave the hosts the lead just before the break with a brilliantly timed run and shot and his creativity always threatened the Basel defence. Hit the crossbar in the second half with a superb striker from 25 yards.
The Cameroonian looked physically sharp and his movement was impressive - but he lacked composure in the final third. Tended to pull out to the left touchline.
Looked a little uncomfortable under crosses but rarely troubled, other than Oscar's goal, and sharp off his line.
Slightly caught out by Oscar's movement for Chelsea's opener but it was the only mistake in a very impressive display. Also comfortable on the ball.
The right-back coped impressively with the duel threat of Hazard and Eto'o on the Chelsea wing. Strong in one-on-one situations.
Dominant in the air up against Eto'o, made vital interceptions and took up good defensive positions.
The left-back was strong up against Willian and after taking a blow to the head played a role in Salah's well-worked equaliser.
Good energy up and down the left side for the visitors and looked to link up quickly with team-mates on the counterattack.
Looked a little overweight to the naked eye but his stamina was excellent and his passing accurate. Could have produced better deliveries from set pieces.
Worked very hard defensively as he sat in front of the back four and denied space for Chelsea's attacking midfielders. Vital performance and tidy on the ball.
Basel's most dangerous player by some distance and deserved his goal in the 71st minute, which he placed into the far corner. Pace and trickery too much for the Chelsea players to handle for much of the night.
The Swiss captain offered a useful focal point for Basel's counterattacking play and made a huge impact. Provided the assist for Salah's equaliser with a neat pass before heading home the late winner.
The bandy-legged forward had one shot in the first half from 30 yards but it was his only real involvement of note before being replaced in the 65th minute.
