Chelsea player ratings vs West Ham 

Edouard Mendy – 7

Had little to do early on as Chelsea dominated. Voice rings out in empty stadiums – commands defence well. 


Cesar Azpilicueta – 7

Brought in with Reece James injured. Caught out once or twice – but so determined. Reliable.

Thiago Silva – 8

Thumped home an excellent  header for his second goal or the club goal. Great leader. 

Kurt Zouma – 6

Commanding in the air. But got caught out on the ground too often.

Ben Chilwell – 6

Twisted ankle and limped off early (sub Emerson 9 mins)

N’Golo Kante – 7

Efficient as ever in the middle. Mopped up well – but several passes were sloppy.

Jorginho – 6

Another recalled to the side after the loss to Wolves. Age the ball away too often. (sub Kovacic 66)

Mason Kount – 6

Lovely corner for the opening goal but found to hard to get going. Quiet game.

Christian Pulisic – 7 

Caused the Hammers one or two problems. Beats his man well but too often no end product. Never stopped. 

Abraham – 8

Recalled to the team. Worked hard, found it hard to keep the ball but rewarded for his perseverance.

Timo Werner – 6

No goals in eight games before last night. Showed as he missed a great chance.

Emerson (on for Chilwell 9 mins). Use this pace well in rare outing. Caught out positionally once or twice. 6

Kovacic (on for Jorginho 66)  Worked hard. 6 

Kai Havertz (on for Pulisic min 84) – N/A
