1. EDEN HAZARD (8.6)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 88
Passes: 57/63
Shots: 1*/2
Take-ons: 5/9
Fouls drawn: 4

Third Man of the Match in a row for Hazard, who settled Saturday’s game with a well-taken blast from the left flank past Asmir Begović for his second goal of the season, in his second start of the season. He’s also added two assists in this two substitute appearances, so it’s all going rather well for him in Sarri-ball. May that long continue.

2. MARCOS ALONSO (8.1)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 90
Passes: 48*/63
Shots: 1/5
Clearances: 5
Tackles+INTs: 3

Just as Hazard has made it three in a row, so has Alonso been there every step of the way, both on the pitch and in these ratings. Third straight second place for the left back, who’s earning plenty of praise for his attacking contributions — he’s now a had direct or semi-direct hand in 6 of Chelsea’s 10 goals — but still needs to improve his game on the defensive end. Fortunately, Chelsea have the ball 80 per cent of the time these days, so it’s his attacking prowess that’s making the difference.

3. PEDRO (8.1, sub)

Minutes: 26
Touches: 22
Passes: 12/15
Shots: 2*/2

Chelsea’s leading goalscorer is now one-tenth of the way to a Mertens-esque 30 goals for the season.
