Chelsea entertained Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge earlier this evening as they hoped to earn maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Blues made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 16th minute courtesy of Kai Havertz’s goal. Mason Mount doubled Chelsea’s advantage just eight minutes later with a good strike. Graham Potter’s men went into the half-time break with a 2-0 lead.

The home team did enough in the second half and managed to secure a 2-0 win in front of their home fans.

Let’s find out how each Chelsea player fared during the match against the Cherries.

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7/10

The Spanish keeper made a few solid saves at the back and earned a well-deserved clean sheet at home.

RB: Reece James – 7/10

The English defender performed his defensive duties well and was a threat going forward. He was replaced in the 52nd minute.

CB: Kalidou Koulibaly – 7/10

Koulibaly cleared the danger when needed and did enough to secure a clean sheet this evening.

CB: Thiago Silva – 7/10

The veteran defender made a lot of important clearances at the back and was accurate with his passing.

LB: Marc Cucurella – 7.5/10

He did his fair share of defending and made one good chance in the final third.

CM: Denis Zakaria – 6.5/10

Zakaria anchored the midfield well at times but offered very little in the opponent’s half.

CM: Jorginho – 6.5/10

He earned the ball back once and made a couple of decent chances for his teammates to score.

CM: Mason Mount – 8.5/10

Mount came back to defend when needed and was a constant menace in the Bournemouth half. He scored a good goal to double Chelsea’s lead in the 24th minute.

RW: Raheem Sterling – 8/10

The English sensation caused a lot of headaches for the opposition defenders and has got an assist to show for his efforts.

ST: Kai Havertz – 8/10

The German sensation was a positive influence at both ends of the field. He deserves credit for ending the game with a goal and an assist to his name.

LW: Christian Pulisic – 6.5/10

Pulisic showed some flashes of what he is capable of but failed to register a goal.

Substitutes:

RB: Cesar Azpilicueta – 6.5/10

He was solid at the back and made one good chance from the right flank.

ST: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – N/A

Aubameyang didn’t get enough time to make an impact.

CM: Conor Gallagher – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the game.

CB: Trevoh Chalobah – N/A

Chalobah came on for the final few minutes of the contest.
