Jose Mourinho’s boys proved that they have not forgotten how to win with a 4-0 thumping of Maccabi Tel Aviv in Chelsea’s opening Champions League game of the season this evening.
Here are the Chelsea player ratings from their dominant victory over the Israeli champions…
GK: Asmir Begovic – 6/10
Hard to truly rate Begovic’s performance considering that Maccabi rarely came close to the box.
RB: Cesar Azpilicueta – 7.5/10
Strong defensive effort as Maccabi’s star player Eran Zahavi was never allowed to come close to the goal.
CB: Kurt Zouma – 8/10
Four clearances was pretty much all that Zouma was required to do, and he didn’t put a foot wrong.
CB: Gary Cahill – 7/10
A few too many mental errors. They meant nothing in this match, but a better opponent would have easily capitalised.
LB: Baba Rahman – 7.5/10
A strong showing from Rahman on his Chelsea debut in indirect relief of Branislav Ivanovic.
Arsenal player ratings from 2-1 defeat: Villan Giroud 3/10, rusty captain 4/10 and no-show Ozil 5/10
