Here are the Chelsea player’s ratings during their 4-0 win at Baku against Qarabag:
The Chelsea No 1 was saved by the crossbar early on in the match but once the home team went down to 10 men he did not have much to do.
Was good overall.
Started in central defence then moved to left-wing back. Did not have much to do but came up with a decent performance.
David Luiz: 6.5/10
Supported Chelsea attack due to Qarabag’s depleted team on the pitch.
N’Golo Kante: 8/10
Typical solid performance at the heart of midfield. Not much to dissect here.
Could not impact the game in the first 20 minutes but once Qarabag were reduced to 10 men the Spaniard dictated the play much more.
Was undoubtedly the hero of the match. Won two penalties and also scored two goals.
Lost possession a number of times and it was he who lost the ball through which Qarabag almost scored a goal.
Marcos Alonso: 6/10
Was a below average performance as per his own standards.
Scored the first goal for Chelsea in the 21st minute from the penalty spot. Was good overall.
Was a great attacking threat for Chelsea. Managed to create space in the Qarabag’s defensive line for his teammates to exploit.
Wasn’t troubled much by the Qarabag attack.
Created good chances but also missed a good opportunity to extend Chelsea’s lead.
