1. EDEN HAZARD (8.8)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 74
Passes: 40/47
Shots: 1*/4
Take-ons: 4/6
Fouls drawn: 3

This was Chelsea’s 36th match of the season (including the Community Shield, since that was also a rated match), and in those 36 community ratings votes that we have run, the three players with the most appearances in the top three have been Eden Hazard (16 times), N’Golo Kanté (15 times), and Kepa Arrizabalaga (13 times)— the only three players with double-digit top three appearances. It’s only fitting that they would lead the way in arguably Chelsea’s biggest win of the season (even if it wasn’t the highest rated match of the season).

2. N’GOLO KANTÉ (8.7)

Minutes: 90
Touches: 51
Passes: 28/31
Shots: 1*/2
Take-ons: 2/4
Fouls drawn: 3
Tackles+Blocks: 2+1

Kanté continues to improve in his box-to-box role and has now matched his career high for goals with 4, which he first set back in his very first full professional season in the French third division with US Boulogne.


Minutes: 90
Touches: 29
Passes: 23/24
Saves: 1

The quiet hero steps up big when we need him the most.
