Cesar Azpilicueta - 6.5 

The Chelsea skipper was involved in a good tussle with Origi. The defender won the battle. 

Antonio Rudiger - 7

Eased his way back into the groove after starting Saturday’s draw at Bournemouth on the bench. Dominant. 

Kurt Zouma -  6.5

Lacked composure at times but a study performance on the whole from the French central defender.

Marcos Alonso - 7

Had his hands full trying to keep tabs on Mane, but kept to his task diligently. 

Billy Gilmour - 8

The youngster produced a performance way beyond his 18 years. Full of composure and vision. A big future ahead of him.

Matteo Kovacic - 7

Worked tirelessly for his team until limping off. Not hard to see why his manager adores him. 

Willian - 7

Looked almost embarrassed to celebrate his goal but it was reward for an industrious display before limping off.

Ross Barkley - 7.5

Forced Fabinho’s mistake for Chelsea’s opener and scored a brilliant solo effort. A pleasing night’s work. 

Pedro - 6.5

A threat down the left and didn’t shirk his defensive duties down the other end. 6.5

Olivier Giroud - 6.5

Kept his place in Tammy Abraham’s absence. Unspectacular but played an important role for his team.
