Newly-crowned champions Chelsea hammered Sunderland to become the first team to win 30 Premier League matches in a season. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the 5-1 win.
Thibaut Courtois: 7
Hardly called upon, but commanded his area well and produced a good second-half save to keep out Jack Rodwell’s header.
Cesar Azpilicueta: 7
Solid as usual and got forward plenty, especially in the second half.
John Terry: 6
An emotional send-off for Chelsea’s legendary number 26, who was given a hero’s reception when substituted in the 26th minute. What a way for him to bow out at Stamford Bridge.
David Luiz: 7
Had another impressive game at the heart of the Chelsea defence and was involved in the build up to the first Blues goal. Has had a brilliant season.
Victor Moses: 6
A couple of wayward crosses and attempts on goal summed up what was a frustrating afternoon for him at times, but he was full of running as usual.
N’Golo Kante: 7
Far better teams than Sunderland have been unable to trouble the player of the year, who ran the show in midfield with ease.
Cesc Fabregas: 7
Another classy display in which he again showed his brilliant range of passing. His ball forward led to the third goal and he was creative throughout.
Marcos Alonso: 7
A good outlet on the left-hand side and was unlucky not to score when his first-half free-kick hit the bar.
A typically bright, buzzing display from the Brazilian. Scored Chelsea’s equaliser and was always a threat to the Sunderland defence.
Eden Hazard: 7
Took his goal really well and was back on form after a below par performance last time out.
Diego Costa: 7
Missed a couple of decent chances but always made his presence felt. Will it also be his final appearance at the Bridge?
Gary Cahill: 7
Calm and composed after coming on for Terry in the first half.
Certainly made an impression after coming on, scoring Chelsea’s third goal and setting up the fourth.
Michy Batshuayi: 7
Having struggled to establish himself following his arrival last summer, Batshuayi has enjoyed a spectacular finish to the season. He scored the winner at West Brom which clinched the title and his two goals after coming on against Sunderland – the second of which was the final kick of Chelsea’s season – meant he ended the campaign with four goals in his last three appearances.
