Chelsea player ratings: Mount inspires the Blues and Giroud shows he will put up fight vs Werner next term


TWO first half injury time goals saw Chelsea qualify for the Champions League.

Mason Mount’s strike and assist shepherded them past Wolves at Stamford Bridge.

Olivier Giroud grabbed the second in an uninspiring game as new signing Timo Werner watched on from the stands.

Here, Simon Phillips rates the players from Chelsea’s 2-0 win…

Came in for Kepa and he proved why Frank Lampard trusted him in such an important game.

Caballero didn’t have lots to do but he was composed on the ball and made a few good saves to keep Chelsea in front.

It was a better performance from the captain today, he was very steady on the ball and didn’t do a lot wrong.

Stellar Zouma proved once again that he is Chelsea’s most assured centre back putting in another solid all-round display at the back.

The German was a little bit shaky at times as he has been a lot since football restarted.

But he also made some pretty decent contributions at the back to keep Chelsea ahead.

James was solid as usual and remained very composed on the ball. He linked well with Mount down the right hand side and stood up well physically.

Performed his job well and overcame some dodgy early moments when he failed to deal with high cross-field passes.

But it was another good contribution from the Spaniard.

Did the basics very well and helped Chelsea control possession; it was a decent afternoon from the former Napoli man.

It was another fantastic performance from Kovacic, he was superb defensively and showed real composure every time he was on the ball.

Mount put Chelsea ahead with a beautiful free kick and then set Olivier Giroud up to score the second right before half time.

Mount was Chelsea’s best creative spark today.

It wasn’t his day at all, one he will want to forget.

Despite growing into the game a little bit more in the second half, he just had one of those games where nothing would happen for him and he was hauled off on 77 minutes for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Frenchmen was rather starved of service in the opening half an hour but took his chance very well to score the second goal and contributed well overall.

Tammy Abraham replaced him on 77 minutes.
