1. KENEDY - FL 8.8
Minutes played70
Make it three straight wins for Chelsea.  No clean sheet this time, but just the one bad bounce goal conceded.  Ten goals scored over the last three matches; 10 different goalscoreres, even!

And the youth revolution also continues with the third straight Man of the Match award won by the youngest player in the starting lineup, following Ruben Loftus-Cheek's efforts midweek against Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Kurt Zouma's efforst against Arsenal on the weekend.  (Kenedy is two weeks younger than RLC.)  The youth of today!

In his three appearances, Kenedy has won two Man of the Match awards.  One goal and one assist for the 19-year-old in this one.  He's the first player this season to repeat as the Man of the Match.  The hype is real.

2. RAMIRES - MC 8.1
Minutes played90
Without looking into it, I want to say that the combined rating for Ramires and Mikel (15.9) has got to be the highest ever in the three-year history of these community player ratings.

Making history!

Minutes played67
Loftus-Cheek's Fabregas-esque assist o Kenedy's goal was easily the pick of the bunch.  Less than 10 games into the new season, RLC has already played more first-team minutes (164) than all of last season (138).  Progress!

Begović (6.7), Baba (6.3), Terry (6.5), Cahill (6.8), Ivanović (4.9), Mikel (7.8), Falcao (6.3), Rémy (7.3)

Pedro (7.4), Matić (6.4), Djilobodji (6.2)
