Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.

Premier League giants Chelsea have confirmed their progress into the knockout stages of the Champions League as the leaders of Group E. Frank Lampard’s side cruised to a comfortable 4-0 win away against Sevilla, thanks to four goals from French talisman Olivier Giroud. The World Cup winner caused the home side’s defenders all sorts of problems with his movement, and his four strikes also included a perfect hat-trick. Lampard will be extremely pleased with the manner in which Chelsea picked up the points tonight, as their win was despite the manager making a whopping nine changes to the eleven.

Edouard Mendy – 7

The Senegalese keeper continues to ooze confidence in between the sticks as he kept yet another clean sheet. Didn’t have any difficult saves to make and collected crosses well too.

The Spanish veteran got forward well and linked up with the attackers in an effective manner. Did his defensive duties satisfactorily when Sevilla pushed for a goal in the first-half as well.

Andreas Christensen – 7

The Danish international centre-half wasn’t called into action on too many occasions as the Blues dominated the game from start to finish. Passed it around well and never looked flustered.

Antonio Rudiger – 7.5

The German made a number of key defensive contributions although Sevilla didn’t really cause them that many problems. Protected the goalkeeper well and made some important blocks.

Emerson – 7

The Italian international put in a solid display in the left-back role as his attacking play was pretty effective. Delivered some good crosses and defended well when required to as well.

The Italian graciously let Olivier Giroud take the penalty in the second half, and didn’t really complain. Passed the ball around in composed fashion and tried to move things forward in attack too.

Mateo Kovacic – 8

The Croatian ran the show in the Chelsea engine room with his energy and general dribbling ability. Got forward and linked up the play well while also performing his defensive duties.

The German starlet put in a starring display in the middle of the park tonight, as his passing and movement were both top class. Produced some special turns and set up Giroud for the opener.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 7.5

The talented Englishman gave the Sevilla full-backs a tough time down the flank as his movement and pace caused a lot of problems. Showed Lampard exactly what he’s capable of.

Olivier Giroud – 10
