Wolves v Chelsea player ratings

Chelsea are through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after beating Wolves. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the 2-0 win at Molineux.

Asmir Begovic: 6

After an early scare when former Chelsea youngster George Saville slammed a shot against his post, he was forced into several nervy punched clearances as Wolves rampaged during a difficult start for the Blues. 

Kurt Zouma: 6

His aerial strength and physicality were needed as Wolves kept the crosses coming. Got up to head wide from a corner in the dying moments.

John Terry: 6

His dependable organisation, cup experience and anticipation of danger played a big part in the clean sheet. Never looked exposed or overly flustered.

Nathan Ake: 6

Made to work hard by the effervescent Helder Costa on Chelsea’s left flank, but grew stronger as the game wore on, even venturing forward.

Cesc Fabregas: 8

Another classy display. A beautiful flighted chip to Willian almost led to an opener from the Brazilian and his probing passes offered the greatest threat throughout. Almost scored in a late breakaway.

Nathaniel Chalobah: 5

Guilty of some misplaced passes, and has had better days, but kept at it and will be grateful to have another 90-minute outing under his belt.

Victor Moses: 6

Might have done better after getting goal-side of the last defender after another astute cross-field ball from Fabregas. A willing outlet, and always available, but the final ball was often missing.

Willian: 7

Never stopped buzzing for the Blues and did most to lift the side during a troubled first half. It was his cross which enabled Pedro to head home the 65th-minute opener.

Pedro: 6

Ghosted in to head home Willian’s cross for the vital first goal, but it was not an easy evening for him at left wing-back and he didn’t look that comfortable. Booked for trip on the dangerous Costa.

Eden Hazard: 6

Looked curiously subdued for the most part, and took a while to get involved. But played a part in the goal which set Chelsea on their way to the quarter-finals.

Diego Costa: 7

Hit a close-range volley over the bar towards the end of the first half and worked a chance for himself that he hit into the side-netting before rifling in the second after a penalty area scramble.
