Chelsea Players Rated And Slated In Their Comfortable Win Vs Huddersfield Town: Willian with 8/10

Chelsea got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town. Goals from Bakayoko, Willian and Pedro ensured that Conte’s men came home with all 3 points in the bag. It was a must-win game for the men in blue to stay close to the pack at the top after their slip up against West Ham last gameweek. The victory takes them level on points with Manchester United although the Red Devils have a game in hand. Here are the player ratings of Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois (6):

Was untroubled for the most part of the evening as he had to make just 1 save. Could do nothing about Huddersfield’s goal.

Cesar Azpilicueta (6):

A comfortable outing for the Spaniard as he was hardly troubled by the Huddersfield attackers.

Andreas Christensen (7):

Well regimented at the heart of the defence as he was authoritative in the air and also clinical with his passing.

Antonio Rudiger (6):

A relatively easy game for the German. Was good on the ball as he made some sublime cross-field passes. Could’ve been a lot tighter to Depoitre to prevent his goal.

Victor Moses (7):

Deployed on the right flank, spent most of his time making attacking runs. A willing runner for balls served down the flanks. Made some very good crosses that caused problems for the Huddersfield defence.

N’Golo Kante (6):

An easy game for the midfield ace as he had very little to do regarding the dirty side of the game.

Tiemoue Bakayoko (7):

After some criticism from the Chelsea faithful, the ex Monaco star produced a very good performance tonight. Finished off Willian’s through ball with a sublime finish to put Chelsea 1-0 up.

Marcos Alonso (6.5):

Much like his fellow wing back, spent much of his time in the Huddersfield half. Produced a good cross for Willian’s header.

Willian (8):

Possibly Willian’s best performance this season. Was a potent threat the entire game with his pace and trickery. Bagged a goal and assist for his efforts.

Pedro (7):

A good performance by the Spaniard as he linked up well with his teammates to create openings for Chelsea. His clinical finish put Chelsea 3-0 up and in the driver’s seat.

Eden Hazard (7):

Deployed as a false number 9 in the absence of Morata, the Belgian ace proved quite efficient. His deft touches and movements looked soothing to the eye. Unlucky not to have found himself on the score-sheet.

Substitutes:

Michy Batshuayi (6):

Was brought on for Hazard in the 69th minute. Was a physical presence in the Huddersfield box in his 20 mins.
