Chelsea moved a step closer to the Premier League title by beating Everton at Goodison Park. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the 3-0 victory.
Thibaut Courtois: 6
Rarely tested, but was alert when called upon, saving Enner Valencia’s dangerous cross.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 7
Was caused some problems in the first half when Romelu Lukaku often pulled out wide, but the ever-reliable defender stuck to the task and had a much more comfortable second half.
David Luiz: 7
Another impressive performance at the heart of the Chelsea defence. The Brazilian has had a terrific season.
Gary Cahill: 7
Another strong performance at the back and was in the right place to score Chelsea’s second goal.
Victor Moses: 7
Not his best game going forward, but the wing-back got through a huge amount of work on the right-hand side.
N’Golo Kante: 7
Imposed himself in midfield, especially during a first-half spell in which Everton were lively and the match was in the balance.
Nemanja Matic: 7
Caught out on a couple of occasions but overall he had a good game and was involved in the build up to the all-important opening goal.
Marcos Alonso: 6
His delivery was poor at times but he still provided a good outlet on the left and was involved in the move which led to the third goal.
Brilliant from the Spaniard. Scored with a stunning strike and his skill and movement always bothered the home side.
Eden Hazard: 7
Also difficult for Everton to contain. Full of movement and invention as always.
Diego Costa: 7
A strong display up front. Worked hard and linked play well.
