The Blues stroll into the quarters with a solid performance…
Chelsea player ratings
- 01 Petr Cech – 6
Didn’t have very much to do, but organised his defence well. Made a save from Drogba late on, but that’s all he really did.
- 02 Branislav Ivanovic – 7
Could have had a difficult night against Wesley Sneijder, but didn’t. The Serbian passes the ball simply into midfield, but in truth, it was all too easy. Made a few lovely sprayed passes to his opposite flank as well.
- 28 Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Drogba, Sneijder and Yilmaz all moved out to Gala’s right, but Chelsea’s Spanish fullback dealt with them all. His feisty performance was just what Jose Mourinho ordered.
- 24 Gary Cahill – 8
Pounced on a loose ball to slam home Chelsea’s second, and dealt well aerially with everything the Turks delivered into his own box.
- 26 John Terry – 8
Another domineering central defensive performance from the Blues skipper. He’s 34, but he’s enjoying one of his best seasons in a Chelsea shirt. Returning striker Didier Drogba didn’t get a sniff.
