A glorified spectator as QPR showed little willingness to go forward and even less ability to create a worthwhile chance until Wright-Phillips' goal, which he could do nothing about. Made one decent save to deny Granero after the break.
Got forward with his usual gusto down the right but his crossing was invariably poor.
Once again looked assured enough in midfield, but QPR's deep defensive line meant he could not find Torres with one of those long raking through balls.
Tracked up and down with enthusiasm but, on this evidence, is not yet ready to succeed Ashley Cole if he does depart Stamford Bridge this summer.
Had no striker to shackle, and used the ball solidly, if unspectacularly. Made one brilliant last-ditch challenge to stop Mackie racing through on goal.
Untroubled defensively, but his only contributions to the attack in the first half were a succession of increasingly hopeful and wild long shots. Did clip the crossbar with a header after the break though.
Calm and intelligent on the ball, organising his team-mates and urging the Blues forward. Not the same cutting edge in the final third as against Everton, but Chelsea would be mad to let him leave.
Didn't do enough to stake his claim for more regular first-team action, and was replaced by Hazard with half an hour left.
His power, skill and movement again caused problems, but he missed one very good chance when he was unable to steer in Marin's low centre.
His sparkle was limited to a couple of nice flicks here and there, and he looked a little out of sorts without the likes of Mata and Hazard to link up with.
Those expecting the news of Demba Ba's seemingly imminent arrival to spur him on were sorely disappointed. This was another fitful display in which he constantly took one step forward and two steps back, although the absence of Mata until 75 minutes might well be given as a mitigating factor in his performance.
Marshalled his defence well and limited the amount of work Cesar had to do.
Commanded his area well and made good saves whenever he was called upon, although one feels a more inspired Chelsea attack would have tested him significantly more.
This wasn't quite redemption after the humiliation heaped on him by Luis Suarez, but Torres never threatened to cause him as many problems. Held his own in the air, and QPR's deep line and Chelsea's unimaginative approach suited him down to the ground.
Handled Marin reasonably well, and although Moses and later Hazard posed considerably stiffer challenges, he kept his discipline.
Wasn't beaten one-on-one too many times and, whenever he was, his centre-backs bailed him out of trouble.
Neat and tidy on the ball and disciplined off it, he played his part in the QPR resistance.
The best player on the pitch in the first half, shielding his back four well and breaking up Chelsea attacks by fair means and foul. Had more problems after the break as the Blues upped the pace and the variation of their attacks, but this was a much-improved display.
Made QPR's unorthodox system work with his intelligent movement and aptitude for buying free-kicks. Not everything he tried came off, but he did assist Wright-Phillips' goal with a perfectly-weighted lay-off.
Helped Derry shackle Oscar and burst forward on numerous occasions, only to be let down by a sloppy pass.
Worked his socks off all evening, and only a brilliant last-ditch challenge from Cahill prevented him giving his side the lead after the break.
