Current Premier League champions Chelsea have ended their campaign with a massive victory over a dejected Sunderland side in their last matchup of the season, beating them by 5-1. Irrespective of the outcome, the matchup was important to the Chelsea fans as the last one of what has truly been an enigmatic career for their ex-captain John Terry with Chelsea in the Premier League, and they came in numbers to bid an emotional farewell to the legendary player.

All the Chelsea players showed their prowess in this match, and they have been rated this way-

Thibaut Courtois- 7

The Belgian shot-stopper conceded one goal, in fact, the opening goal of the match, scored by Javi Manquillo in the third minute.

John Terry- 4

The honorary captain didn’t play much of the match and was withdrawn in the 26th minute, commemorating the shirt number that he wore throughout his tenure with Chelsea.

David Luiz-6

The Brazilian played an instrumental role in the Chelsea defence and kept the ball out of harm’s way for most of the match.

Cesar Azpilicueta- 6

The Spaniard was always alert to not let the opponents make much of a move into the attacking third.

Cesc Fabregas-6.5

The midfielder got one of the rare starts of the season and had a good game, helping Kante in a deep midfield position.

N’Golo Kante-7.5

The French maestro once again showed why he has been chosen as the PFA Player of the Year, playing a crucial role in the midfield.

Marcos Alonso- 6

The Spanish winger went the full length of the field, with crucial interceptions and key passes to initiate attacks on Sunderland goal.

Victor Moses-5

Moses has well and truly set into his new role as a right midfielder, playing some brilliant passes into the attacking third.

Willian- 8

The Brazilian opened the scoring for the Blues and played some astounding football throughout the game.

Eden Hazard- 8

The Belgian skipper also went on the score sheet and made amends for a dismal season last term.

Diego Costa- 7

The Spaniard was good as usual and made his presence felt in the Sunderland defence throughout the match.

Mitchy Batshuyi- 8

The Belgian made amends for his lack of outings and scored two goals to seal the victory for his team.

Pedro-7.5

The Spaniard came on as a substitute and made an immediate impact with a goal and an assist to his name in another memorable win for his club.

Gary Cahill- 7

Cahill came on as a substitute for a visibly emotional Terry and was sublime in defending the goal for the Blues.
