"He is not yet ready for the Premier League; Champions League is different football," said Mourinho back in September when quizzed on the whereabouts of one of the best left backs in the Bundesliga the previous season.

Not sure how different the (best of the) Premier League will be from PSG, but if yesterday is any indication, Baba is certainly ready for the Premier League as well.

Welcome to Chelsea, Baba Rahman.

While I was not particularly impressed with how many times PSG were able to deliver a ball in-behind Azpilicueta, they seemed to be overloading that side with Maxwell regularly bursting forward and Matuidi frequently shifting over as well from the middle.  While Pedro did admirably in tracking back and helping, there is only so much that can be done in such situations.

That said, Dave did well and despite all the threat down the PSG left, both of their goals were scored from moves straight up the middle.

Another here, there, every-funning-where performance from Chelsea's most consistently excellent player all season, and he sneaks in to third spot by a few hundreds ahead of Thibaut Courtois.

Willian did cut a sometimes-frustrated figure, as his work-rate wasn't always matched to his liking by the rest of his teammates, but he left his lung on the pitch Tuesday night... as did many others, since Hiddink once again refused to use all three of his subs for some unfathomable reason.

STARTERS:
Courtois (7.5), Baba (7.8), Ivanović (7.2), Cahill (7.2), Azpilicueta (7.7), Mikel (6.8), Fàbregas (6.7), Pedro (7.0), Willian (7.5), Hazard (5.7), Costa (6.6)

SUBS:
Oscar (5.8)
