Chelsea 2-0 Newcastle United : Werner close to his best form

Kepa Arizzabalaga (7.5/10) – Kepa was forced into some brilliant saves to deny Newcastle United attackers. However, he deserves the clean sheet alongside his hardworking defenders.

Antonio Rudiger (6/10) – The defense wasn’t tested much initially but Rudiger managed some good defending whenever needed.

Cesar Azpilicueta (7/10) – The skipper was really leading his team from behind and also, came near to adding a third goal for the London side.

Andreas Christensen (6.5/10) – He was really sound in defence in this fixture and has helped the team cope up with the absence of veteram defemder Thiago Silva.

Mateo Kovacic (8/10) – He is becoming better and better match after match. Additionally, he is one of the key players that has helped the team win back possession and lead the attacks.

Jorginho (7/10) – He needs to improve on his ability to attack. Thus, it wasn’t one of his best performances.

Marcos Alonso (6.5/10) – He wasn’t tested defensively but had helped the team maintain the possession when it was needed.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (7/10) – One of the key players in Tuchel’s 3-4-3 system. He did play upto the expectations and was defensively sound enough.

Mason Mount (6.5/10) – Mount was a bit slow in the match as he was kept quiet by the Magpies.

Tammy Abraham (NA) – He couldn’t be rated as he left the field just 20 minutes from the start. However, the injury would be a concern for Thomas Tuchel.

Timo Werner (8.5/10) – He was having one of his best games after a wonderful goal and a fantastic assist. Werner deserves to be the Man of the Latch.
