Saved well at Salah's feet in the first half, but could do little to prevent the winger converting a second clear-cut chance.
Defended astutely and proved an important player in transition with his accurate passing and direct running.
Perhaps did not boss the midfield as he had done in the first leg, particularly in the first half, but buried a magnificent 30-yard effort with his left foot to put the tie to bed.
Salah played more centrally than usual and so he often did not have a direct opponent to face. Supported Moses well and performed his defensive duties without fuss.
Has not played with Cahill since February and with Bertrand also stepping into the back four, he looked a bit out of sync with the players either side of him at times. Salah got behind him twice and scored on the second occasion.
Generally chose the right time to step up and drop off, making some timely interceptions and smart tackles as Basel focused their attacks through the middle.
Supported the attack well and was inches away from equalling Bobby Tambling's goalscoring record in the first half when he hit the post.
Excelled in a position off Torres, playing a key part in Chelsea's equaliser with a brilliant run and lay-off. A wonderful combination of speed, skill and purpose.
Fairly subdued on the right flank before he was brought off in the second half as Rafa Benitez ensured he did not miss a second consecutive European final due to suspension.
Tended to stick to the flank but used the ball well when it came his way. Laid on a big chance which Ramires failed to take before he made it 2-1 from close range.
Started brightly in his off-the-ball running but his shooting was erratic - one effort went out for a throw-in - before he slammed home a rebound to bring Chelsea level.
Could not do much about any of Chelsea's goals as his defence capitulated in front of him early in the second half.
Dependable in a notable position of weakness for Basel in the first leg. Ramires did not ask too many questions but he did not give up anything easy.
Attacked with intent from right-back but he often faced two-on-one situations defensively as Salah drifted into the middle.
Had a strong first half, keeping Torres and Hazard in front of him, but the lack of midfield protection after the break made his job very difficult.
Mohamed El Nenny
A talented ball player, but sometimes does not put up much of a fight when out of possession. His intelligent possession play led to Basel's opening goal, however.
G. Serey Die
Erratic. It was remarkable he was not booked before the 88th minute given the way he crashed into tackles and his final ball often disappoints, although his mobility between boxes is useful.
Crashed the crossbar with a shot in the second half, but the damage was done by that point and he has to take responsibility for the way Chelsea began to walk through the Basel midfield en route to goal.
Slipped through a neat through ball which Salah converted to put Basel in front but otherwise he struggled to find space as he drifted inside.
Looked the most likely player to cause Chelsea problems, but mainly with his runs in behind rather than for his work on the ball. Finished coolly to put Basel ahead.
Did a good job bringing his team-mates into play in the first half and flashed a superb volley just wide of the far post, but brought off for Zoua shortly after the hour mark.
