Ratings

Mendy - 6

Chelsea's number one started off strong making some key saves in the first half keeping the score level at halftime. Mendy got beat at the near post which he will probably be disappointed about but was there when called upon. 

Reece James - 8 

The English fullback got the all-important assist for Raheem Sterling's second goal and almost scored himself hitting the post in the first half. 

Thiago Silva - 7

Silva as always commanded the Blue's defence and showed class making some key tackles and interceptions. A rock at the back despite his age still. 

Trevoh Chalobah - 6 

The youngster was strong as always in the air however struggled to deal with Jamie Vardy. 

Ruben Loftus-Cheek - 6.5 

Loftus-Cheek looked comfortable in his new role at right wing-back but failed to convert an early chance which was nearly costly for the Blues.

Marc Cucurella - 8

The Spaniard assisted Sterling's first goal of the game and looked strong going up and down the pitch.

Jorginho - 7 

The captain dictated the midfield as he usually does and played quite well despite having to cover for the departed Conor Gallagher.
