Chelsea player ratings vs Atletico Madrid: Match WinnerGiroud 9/10, Mount 7/10, Timo Werner 6/10



Here is how we rated the Blues players in their resilient 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in Bucharest

Edouard Mendy

Very nervy beginning as a heavy touch in his box almost allowed Felix to capitalise. Some of his decision making was very interesting. Barely had a save to make all game. 6

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Got forward at will in the first half but his crossing into the box or final ball was lacking. Felt like he could have done a bit more throughout. 6

Cesar Azpilicueta

Wasn’t unduly troubled by Thomas Lemar and was impressive in the second half as Atletico target his side. 7

Antonio Rudiger

Fairly comfortable dealing with Atletico’s counter attacking throughout and continued his resurgence in form. 7

Andreas Christensen

Dealt well with Luis Suarez in the first half and his distribution was good. Stood up well after Chelsea went ahead with some big clearing headers. 8

Marcos Alonso

Sluggish start, lucky his error wasn’t punished by Thomas Lemar on the quarter of an hour mark. Offered plenty of width throughout and was a threat on the counter attack. 7


Passing was sloppy for the majority. Improved in the second half but will miss the second leg after picking up a booking after the break. 6

Mateo Kovacic

Industrious but ineffective in the first 45 minutes. Picked up the pace after the break but wasn’t quite at his fluent best. Subbed with 15 minutes to go. 6

Mason Mount

Will miss the second leg of the tie after picking up a booking with 40 seconds of kick off. One outrageous piece of skills after the break flummoxed two Madrid midfielders. A bundle of energy but was far more disciplined in a tactical sense than usual. 7

Timo Werner

Had the best chance of the opening period when he forced a comfortable save from Oblak from a tight angle. Quiet in the second half bar one chance he missed from a tight angle. 6

Olivier Giroud

Not really much of note before he decided to brighten the entire evening up with a quite wonderful overhead kick that beat Oblak to give Chelsea the lead. If that’s all you do in a game then so be it. Such a vital goal and gets an extra point for how sublime it was. 9

Hakim Ziyech (for Mount, 74’)

Didn’t offer much. 5

N’Golo Kante (for Kovacic, 74’)

Did what he needed to do when he came on to see out the game. 6

Reece James (for Hudson-Odoi, 79’) No rating

Kai Havertz (for Giroud, 86’) No rating

Christian Pulisic (for Werner, 86’) No rating
