Chelsea player ratings: Mendy and Chilwell prove shrewd purchases but Werner continues to struggle


CHELSEA cruised to an easy 4-0 victory against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in what was their first Premier League win in three weeks.

Ben Chilwell opened the scoring with a fierce drive early in the second half, before he set up Kurt Zouma who doubled the Blues’ lead with a fine header.

Jorginho then helped himself to two goals from the penalty spot to wrap up the three points in West London.

Here’s how SunSport rated and slated the Chelsea players.

He was not troubled at all by Crystal Palace in the first half.

He was a bit busier in the second half and made a couple of good saves and he fore fronted Chelsea’s first Premier League clean sheet of the season. 

The captain did the basics fine, but didn’t bring enough in the attacking third. Got a bit better in the second half and effected things more.

Showed leadership as he stopped Tammy Abraham from snatching spot-kick duties away from designated penalty taker Jorginho for the fourth goal.

He did his job well and was naturally very cool and calm on the ball, still looks to be settling in at Stamford Bridge.

Game after game Kurt Zouma is putting in consistently good performances in a Chelsea shirt and today was no different, another solid showing from him.

He even got on the score sheet with a lovely header in the second half.

An assured showing from the new left back, always comfortable on the ball and tried to maintain a threat going forward.

He scored Chelsea’s first and set up the second, great performance. Chelsea star man.

A typically energetic performance from Kante who was all over the park once again, breaking up play and even offering a threat going forward.

A much better game from the Italian international and he managed to pick out some good passes, including a great over the top ball for Tammy Abraham who got unlucky.

He also converted two second half penalties to get himself on the score sheet. 

Chelsea’s biggest creative spark, always looking to advance with the ball and he worked tirelessly tracking back as well.

A fantastic game for the German international. 

A few good moves from Hudson-Odoi as he looked to make things happen.

He started to come alive even more in the second half and got a lot braver with his effective creativity. 

Another reasonably quiet time in the first half for Werner who didn’t really offer much from out wide and will always be more comfortable playing centrally.

Poor display from Abraham in the first half as he struggled to be a threat.

He livened up in the second half and won a penalty for Chelsea’s third goal.

Embarrassed himself by trying to take duties away from Jorginho for the second penalty.
