A second-half collapse led to Chelsea suffering a 3-0 defeat in the hands of Bournemouth at Stanford Bridge.

See how the players fared in the game:

Courtois: Would be disappointed with some of the goals conceded tonight as they were under his body or close to him. 4/10

Azpilicueta: Had a solid first half display but the Chelsea defence completely fell apart in the second half and he became way too exposed. 4/10

Christensen: Started the game brightly but he came off holding his hamstring. 5/10

Cahill: Slotted into the middle of the defence when Christensen went off injured. Had a comfortable first half but was all over the place in the second half.  3/10

Zappacosta: Was bright and dangerous on the right flank till the team collapsed in the second half. 6/10

Alonso: Nothing spectacular today and he didn’t have much effect on the left flank as he would have liked. 5/10

Kante: Some of his touches and runs in midfield were good, and his work rate was commendable. 6/10

Bakayoko: Frustratingly gave the ball away which led to the first goal and was all over the place in the middle of the park. A bad night for him. 3/10

Barkley: Another disappointing night for the January signing as he was subbed off after just 54 minutes. Still doesn’t look match fit. 4/10

Eden Hazard: Really tried to carry the weight of the team all by himself but it felt like he was trying too hard. Didn’t have enough quality around him. 5/10

Pedro: Ran all over the pitch but nothing fruitful. 4/10


Rudiger: Came on for the injured Christensen and played one stunning ball out to Pedro in the first half. Was poor in the second half, and some poor positioning and mix-ups with Cahill at times left the defence exposed. 3

Fabregas: A couple of nice passes after coming on, but nothing that cut Bournemouth defence open. 5

Callum Hudson-Odoi: Came on to make his Premier League debut and looked confident in possession and was lively on the ball. 6/10
