The leaders of the Premier League, Chelsea hosted Peterborough in the FA Cup third round and Antonio Conte fielded an experienced team mixed with talents like Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah. Kurt Zouma and Begovic returned and only a win would have been sufficient for the fans.

The match got off to a bright start with Chelsea playing their typical football under Conte with the pace element being a key factor. Pedro opened the scoring after a clever work with his feet saw him set himself up and a lash was enough to see the ball drop into the left side of the net. The second goal followed as Ivanovic’s cross from the left found Ruben Loftus-Cheek who used his chest to provide a lay off for the Belgian Batshauyi who finished clinically.

The third goal belongs to the home side again as Pedro’s work down the right and a crucial pass was enough for Willian to dribble and then slot the ball home into the left bottom corner. John Terry was sent off as he brought down Angol and Peterborough scored immediately as a ball into the box was finished well. Chelsea killed the game off as Pedro again scored a beautiful goal as Conte’s men progressed to the next round.

The Best And The Worst Chelsea Players Rated From Their Win Vs Peterborough

1) Asmir Begovic – 6.5/10

Made a couple of decent saves and was helpless as Peterborough scored. He won’t displace Courtois anytime soon but still he’s a reliable backup.

2) Branislav Ivanovic – 6/10

He was neat on the ball but didn’t show any attacking spirit apart from contributing to the second goal.

3) Gary Cahill – 6.5/10

Put in a solid performance and Chelsea looked vulnerable when he was subbed off.

4) Kurt Zouma – 6/10

His pace doesn’t look to have taken a hit but he’s lacking sharpness still which is expected after returning from a long time injury. He’ll grow into this Chelsea team for sure.

5) John Terry – 5.5/10

Had a decent game until he was sent off for a needless challenge. He will have to impress again to get into this settled Chelsea team.
