It was a good day in office for Antonio Conte’s men as the Blues returned to winning ways with a good victory against West Brom.

See how the players fared in this game:

Courtois: A comfortable afternoon for the Belgian, but he will take credit for making a good save when placed one on one with Salomon Rondon after he fouled Christensen. 7/10

Christensen: It’s easy to see the role he plays for Chelsea in the defence with his calm, composed, confident and intelligent game play. 7.5/10

Rudiger: Solid performance at the back in a comfortable day in office for the defence. 7/10

Azpilicueta: Made one very important tackle early in the second half that saved the team from conceding. Great game from the Spaniard. 7.5/10

Kante: He steals balls easily, helps recover balls and covers the defensive flaws of his teammates, and we saw all that today as he protected his backline. 8/10

Fabregas: When he’s on his day he’s a joy to watch with his sleek passing and vision. Was involved in the second goal and had a good game. 7.5/10

Moses: Had a good game on the right flank and wrapped it off with a good goal and a nice finish. Was always threatening down the right. 8/10

Zappacosta: He had quite a comfortable evening on the left flank and didn’t have much to do either. 6/10

Pedro: Energetic performance from the Spaniard before being taken off for Willian late in the game. 7/10

Hazard: Great performance from the Belgian, and it’s easy to see why he was hailed as the most talented player in the Premier League by Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen. Had a good game and scored a brace to return Chelsea to winning ways. 9/10

Giroud: Started the game well with an assist for Hazard and some good movement and positioning. Started to fade away late in the half and was subbed off for Morata early in the second half after too many misplaced passes. 6/10

Subs

Morata: Came on for Giroud and tested Foster with a good shot. Had some exciting moves too. 6/10

Cahill: Replaced Christensen on the 74th minute and was comfortable in defence. 6/10

Willian: Came on for Pedro for the last ten minutes of the game and had a good cameo. 6/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
