Chelsea are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup after beating Newcastle 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

See how the players fared in the game:

Caballero: Had a good game as he didn’t only keep a clean sheet, but a number of telling saves. 8/10

Cahill: Wasn’t troubled especially in the second-half as he marshalled his defence to a clean sheet. 7/10

Christensen: Started the attack from the back as he was often good in possession. 7/10

Rudiger: Tough performance from the Germany international as Chelsea’s defence shut out Newcastle. 6/10

Drinkwater: Average performance and some of his passes went astray and his shots were off target. 5/10

Kante: Ever solid in midfield and his energetic display was too hot for Newcastle midfield. 7/10

Zappacosta: Had a good game and was a constant threat when going forward down the right flank. 7/10

Alonso: Fine display as he assisted Batshuayi to score the first goal and scored a superb free-kick in the second-half to kill off the game. 8/10

Hazard: Was a regular hazard for the Newcastle defence with his twists and turns, and was involved in the buildup to the first goal and also assisted Batshuayi for the second. 7.5/10

Pedro: His excellent pass for Hazard in the first half started off a good move for the first goal, and he could also have gotten on the scoresheet. 7/10

Batshuayi: Didn’t start the game brightly, but his confidence grew and he went on to score a brace and put in one of his finest displays in a Chelsea shirt. 8.5/10


Barkley: Came on for Hazard with 17 minutes left of the game, but he still looks match rusty. 5/10

Ampadu: Came on for Kante on the 77th minute and two minutes afterwards he found Pedro with a superb pass from deep that the Spaniard should have scored from. Had a good game and was full of confidence as he sat in the base of the Chelsea midfield. 6.5/10

Hudson-Odoi: Had nine minutes to show his worth in his Chelsea debut, and his skill and pace were clearly evident on the left flank as he replaced Pedro. 6.5/10
