See the player ratings for this game

Mendy: Had a hand in Rome Lavia’s strike, but it wasn’t strong enough to pull a save. Wasn’t well protected by his defence. 5/10

Azpilicueta: Had a poor game defensively. Conceded the corner that led to Lavia’s goal, and his poor clearance landed in front of Lavia. 3/10

Thiago Silva: Calm and composed defending, including a goal line clearance that could have worsened th3 scoreline. 6/10

Koulibaly: Average performance. His passing out from the back was quite poor at times. 5/10

Cucurella: Seemed to lack quality sometimes in attack. But decent game nevertheless. 6/10

Jorginho: Couldn’t dominate the game in the middle of the park. 5/10

Loftus-Cheek: Quiet game. Subbed off at half-time. 5/10

Ziyech: Started the game brightly, including one fine cross field pass. Struggled afterwards until the end of the game. 5/10

Sterling: Chelsea’s best player and scored the only goal of the game for Chelsea. Wasn’t on the same wavelength with our forward players. 6.5/10

Mount: Played poorly and lacked fluidity. However, provided the assists for Raheem Sterling’s goal. 5/10

Kai Havertz: Another poor game upfront. 4/10


Kovacic: Tried to help after coming on at half-time. Did okay but yet to get his best match sharpness. 6/10

Broja: Used his pace and strength after coming on. Bright start. Might need to start ahead of Havertz. 6/10

Pulisic: Lacked the quality to cause Southampton any harm. 5/10

Chilwell: Did okay after coming on to play at left wing-back. 5/10
