Chelsea vs Juventus Player Ratings: Blues Run Riot

Chelsea dismantled the Bianconeri 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League on Tuesday evening as their academy stars stole the headlines.

Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi, all from Chelsea’s famous Cobham academy, got on the scoresheet here in an emphatic victory over Juventus. Timo Werner scored the fourth late on to add insult to injury. Chalobah has now scored in his first starts in both the Premier League and Champions League.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side were on the back foot from the start here in what was their heaviest Champions League defeat in their history. On the other side of the technical area, Thomas Tuchel saw his side continue in their fantastic form which puts them on top of Group H heading into the final round of fixtures in the group stages.

The Blues were by far the stronger side here so let’s take a look at the player ratings.


Edouard Mendy – 6

Had very little to do throughout the night but did make a decent save to deny an effort from Weston McKennie late on.

Trevoh Chalobah – 8

Put Chelsea in front with a good finish on the half volley inside the area, following a corner from Hakim Ziyech. Had very little work to do defensively but looked solid when called upon.

Thiago Silva – 7

Made a fantastic goal line clearance on the volley to deny Alvaro Morata a goal in his return to Stamford Bridge. Looked very solid at the back in what was another impressive performance.

Antonio Rudiger – 7

Played a fantastic ball in behind the defense to Reece James in the build up to Chelsea’s third goal. Was not troubled at the back throughout.

Reece James – 9

Looked lively throughout and had a great effort saved by Wojciech Szczęsny late on in the first half. Doubled Chelsea’s lead with a fantastic finish from the right flank across goal, excellent control of the ball, chesting the ball down superbly. Played a key role in the third goal too, controlling well from the Rudiger pass. Another top class display.

N’Golo Kante – N/A

Did not have enough time to get a rating here as he was subbed off in the first half for Ruben Loftus-Cheek after picking up a knock.

Jorginho – 8

Sat deep and looked to dictate the tempo, as well as playing progressive passes. Kept things ticking as well as winning the ball back well. Played a fantastic lobbed pass into Callum Hudson-Odoi in the first half. Fine performance.

Ben Chilwell – 7

Had an excellent chance to give Chelsea an early lead but squandered his opportunity. Looked fairly threatening going forward when he had the chance and was not troubled at all defensively here.

Hakim Ziyech – 6.5

Picked up a free role in the center for the Chelsea attack, worked hard and picked up a few good spaces in possession. Looked creative but his end product was a little off.

Christian Pulisic – 6

Struggled to get involved during his time on the pitch here but did his job when needed to.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 8

Involved a lot throughout the match as Chelsea looked to attack down the left flank often. Played a good ball into James for his effort later on in the first half. Linked-up well with Ziyech early on in the second half and also scored Chelsea’s third of the night, finishing from close range.


Ruben Loftus-Cheek – 7.5

Setup Hudson-Odoi’s goal with some nice footwork in the area before laying it off. Looked sharp when he came on, creating two chances and was also extremely accurate in possession.

Cesar Azpilicueta – N/A

Timo Werner – 7

Looked sharp when he came on and also topped off the Chelsea performance with a goal.

Mason Mount – N/A

Saul Niguez – N/A


Wojciech Szczęsny – 7

Made a number of high quality saves to deny James and Hakim Ziyech in what was an extremely busy night for the former Arsenal ‘keeper. The scoreline could have been way worse for Juve here as Szczesny made a series of acrobatic saves. Could do very little to stop any of the goals.

Juan Cuadrado – 6

Booked for a clumsy challenge on Callum Hudson-Odoi in the first half. Had a lot to do throughout the match but did struggle a little up against Hudson-Odoi.

Leonardo Bonucci – 6

Made a good challenge to deny Hudson-Odoi who was played through on goal late on in the first half. It was a busy night here for the Italian.

Matthijs De Ligt – 5.5

Busy night for the Dutchman in which he endured a difficult time up against an on form Chelsea side. Struggled here.

Alex Sandro – 5

Lost possession the most times in the match and struggled up against Reece James. Not a good showing by the Brazilian.

Weston McKinnie – 5

Worked hard as he was forced into a lot of defensive work to support Cuadrado at right-back. Caught in behind by Hudson-Odoi in the first half and also made a costly mistake late on which led to Chelsea’s fourth goal.

Manuel Locatelli – 5

Well-timed challenge on Rudiger who was driving forward into the area with intent in the first half but still struggled a little here alongside his midfield counterparts.

Rodrigo Bentancur – 4

Struggled in the midfield battle and was caught in possession too frequently. Lost possession once again in the second half which led to a good opportunity for Chelsea to score. Poor performance here before being subbed off for Paulo Dybala.

Adrien Rabiot – 5.5

Was probably Juve’s best midfielder but he still struggled up against a strong Chelsea side. Was not involved too much and was also dispossessed a couple of times.

Alvaro Morata – 5

Thought he had brought the scores level when he lifted the ball over Mendy but Thiago Silva denied him with a fantastic piece of defending. Was hardly involved as Juve struggled to get anything going up top.

Federico Chiesa – 5

Scarcely involved throughout as Juve struggled to create much at all. Subbed off for Dejan Kulusevski late on.


Paulo Dybala – 5

Struggled to get involved when he came on in what was a frustrating night.

Moise Kean – N/A

Arthur – N/A

Dejan Kulusevski – N/A

Koni De Winter – N/A
