Man of the match: Reece James (8): Him again! The right-back of the Blues once again distinguished himself at home by scoring his fifth goal of the season (in all competitions). He will even be at the origin of the fourth goal of the evening thanks to a magnificent cross towards Ziyech who will center for Werner. In addition to his importance in the offensive sector thanks to his climbing balls to the feet and his quality of the center, he was able to make the difference defensively thanks to his physique and his speed.
Chelsea player ratings: Chelsea: 3-4-2-1
Mendy (6): He had to wait until the 83rd minute to afford his first parry of the game, following a half-volley from McKennie. For the rest, a very quiet part.
Chalobah (7): Very good defensively, he was able to repel the Bianconeris’ attack attempts. In addition, the young English defender distinguished himself offensively by opening the scoring. Following a corner and a discount from Rüdiger, he tried his luck in the first place and saw his shot finish in the back of the net.
Silva (6.5): In the first period, he saved his team on the only important opposing opportunity of the match with a tackle slipped on his goal line after a lob from Morata on Mendy. In addition to his superb rescue, the Brazilian once again showed us all the banner of his football and in particular his vision of the game.
Rüdiger (6): Flawless in the defensive sector, the German has participated in many offensive phases of his team and will even be a decisive passer on Chalobah’s goal.
Kanté (not rated): Always on the move, the French midfielder has not relaxed his efforts, whether defensive or offensive but leaves the lawn after forty minutes of play, certainly a muscle discomfort … Replaced by
Loftus- Cheek (6.5). A very good start for the English player, who managed all of his passes and dribbles. He will offer himself an assist on the goal of Hudson Odoi to conclude a good game for him.
Jorginho (6): In his role as a shadow player, he, like Kanté, made a lot of efforts for his team and was able to recover several balls during the game. Replaced by Saúl Ñíguez.
Chilwell (6): Faced with a team that has not shown itself to be dangerous offensively, the Chelsea winger has played high tonight and has even been at the conclusion of various opportunities. Nevertheless, he never knew how to adjust the sights in order to frame one of his attempts. Replaced by Azpilicueta.
Ziyech (6): The Moroccan was present in all the opportunities of his team but too often lacked technical accuracy, with several missed dribbles and 26 balls lost. He will still offer in added time, an assist for Werner’s goal.
Hudson-Odoi (7): Big game from him! Indeed, he directly undermined his opposite of the day, Cuadrado, thanks to his liveliness. Then, after missing the target in a few situations, he managed to defeat the vigilance of Szczęsny before the hour mark with a shot from close range under the right window. Replaced by Mount.
Pulisic (5.5): Holder in a center-forward position, the American struggled to be seen at the start of the game. And despite the fact that he did not have the slightest situation to put in his mouth, the former Borussia Dortmund still participated in the game of the London club. Replaced by Werner. A good comeback with a goal scored at the end of the game.
Szczęsny (4): Despite many saves throughout the game, the Polish goalkeeper went four times to get the ball in his own net.
Cuadrado (3): Completely overwhelmed by Hudson-Odoi from start to finish, the Colombian had a bad evening on English soil. Replaced by De Winter.
Bonucci (4): The Juve captain tried to contain the opposing assaults but often found himself alone against several Chelsea players.
De Ligt (5): Despite several aerial duels won and opposing attempts countered, the Dutchman was powerless against this Chelsea team.
Sandro (3.5): Despite a weak attacking contribution, the Brazilian did not give up his efforts. Unfortunately, he was largely dominated defensively against Reece James and even Chalobah.
McKennie (3): Transparent offensively just that his shot at the end of the game, stopped by Mendy, the American is at fault on the fourth goal of the Blues by missing his clearance, which will allow Ziyech to center for Werner.
Bentancur (4): A strike at twenty-five meters and then that’s it. Less influential than usual, the Uruguayan still offered a strike at the end of the first period, but the latter will miss the opposing goal. Replaced by Dybala.
Locatelli (5): One of the only satisfactions of the evening on the Old Lady side. Indeed, the former Sassuolo achieved a rather correct first period with clean raises. Nevertheless, he will give way to Arthur in the second half.
Rabiot (3): Very little seen offensively, like his team, the French was dominated in his lane against Reece James.
Chiesa (3.5): Not up to the event, the Italian nugget was unable to make any difference in the last thirty-five opposing meters and often procrastinated when he had the ball in his feet. Replaced by Kulusevski.
Morata (4): Back in one of his old stadiums, the Spanish striker suffered against the opposing central hinge. Replaced by Kean.
