Who impressed and who could have done better for the Blues?
Chelsea ensured that they head into the international break on a high after beating Norwich City 1-3 at Carrow Road in the Premier League.
Here are the best and worst performers for the Blues.
The striker was given a rare start by Jose Mourinho and clearly didn’t want to waste the opportunity to impress the manager.
Right from the off Ba was causing the Norwich defence and goalkeeper John Ruddy problems and did well to set up Oscar for the opening goal after just four minutes.
An impressive season for the Brazilian is continuing as the 22-year-old got in a good position to latch onto Ba’s pass and smash the ball with the outside of the boot into the bottom right corner.
Oscar perhaps lacked the physical prowess to challenge Norwich when the hosts had the ball, but looked sharp when running at the Canaries’ defenders.
Only played 10 minutes but what a fine cameo it was, as the 25-year-old opened the winger’s account with the west London club with a superb strike.
The goal was the side’s third of the match and effectively killed off any Norwich fightback.
Replaced the impressive Ba in the second half but never looked anywhere near as influential as the Senegal international did.
Eto’o played well the midweek drubbing of Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League, but looks to be adjusting to English football poorly.
It was an uncharacteristically unassured display from the defender, who was caught out trying to play too high a line and failed to mark Anthony Pilkington for Norwich’s equaliser.
Luiz always looks a lot stronger as a defensive midfielder than a centre-back.
After coming off the bench against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and changing the game, Mata looked a little lost in this tie.
The Spaniard has been scarcely used by Mourinho this term and performances like this won’t convince the 50-year-old to change that stance.
