Chelsea v Burnley player ratings

Callum Hudson-Odoi’s first Premier League goal capped a resounding win for Chelsea. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the 3-0 victory over Burnley. 

Kepa Arrizabalaga: 6

Burnley did not create much for him to deal with but a decent outstretched save kept out Dwight McNeil’s first-half free-kick.

Reece James: 8

Started for the third straight game and was excellent, supplying the deep cross for Tammy Abraham’s headed goal. Also threatened with two first-half shots and was a constant danger.

Antonio Rudiger: 6

Created plenty of danger in the air at the opposite end of the pitch but a slack touch almost gave Chris Wood an early chance to put Burnley ahead.

Andreas Christiansen: 6

Brought in for his first start in a month and coped well with the threat and size of Wood, who was kept relatively quiet. Headed a chance over the bar with five minutes left.

Cesar Azpilicueta: 6

Had a good battle with Aaron Lennon on Burnley’s right wing and for the most part kept him at bay while supporting Chelsea attacks.

Jorginho: 8

Dictated Chelsea’s tempo in their build-up and calmly stroked home the penalty that gave his side an early 1-0 lead.

Ross Barkley: 7

Cleared off the line in an very good first-half showing and was effective right to the end.

Mason Mount: 6

Linked play well but had a fairly unremarkable game until he fashioned a great chance for Abraham in the second half.

Callum Hudson-Odoi: 7

Gambled at the far post to poke in Azpilicueta’s cross to make it 3-0. Generally lively.

Willian: 8

A constant threat as usual, and his cleverness won the penalty when he drew Matt Lowton into a sliding table in the box.

Tammy Abraham: 7

Beat Ben Mee in the air to bag the second goal. Should have headed in a second with 20 minutes left, though.
