Fulham made the derby difficult at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea ended up with a 2-0 win courtesy of goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

See the ratings of the Chelsea players below:

Kepa: Was tested on three good occasions and he made three good saves to keep a clean sheet for his team. 8/10

Luiz: Solid at the back and made one good over the top pass to Pedro in the first half. Won his battles well against Mitrovic. 7/10

Rudiger: Won his aerial duels well and was calm in defence. Was a rock at the back. 7/10

Alonso: Probably one of his worst games this season. Barely put in a good cross after being found in dangerous areas. Had a poor game and was subbed off in the second half. 4.5/10

Azpilicueta: Started out as a right-back and ended as a left-back. Made some crucial interceptions in the second half. Had a good game. 7/10

Jorginho: Didn’t do much but hardly lost the ball as he moved the ball across midfield for Chelsea. 6.5/10

Kante: Had a good game and responded to critics with a vital interception and then assist for Pedro’s first goal. Worked really hard in midfield. 7.5/10

Kovacic: Worked hard in the first half and performed pretty well before taking a knock late in the first half which affected his performance afterwards. 6/10

Pedro: Showed extraordinary calm to score the opener in the fourth minute of the game and worked pretty hard for the team. 7/10

Hazard: Was fouled countless times whenever he went forward. Assisted Loftus-Cheek for his goal. 7/10

Giroud: Didn’t get on the scoresheet but made life difficult for Fulham defenders. Faded off in the second half and was taken off for Morata. 6/10

Subs

Loftus-Cheek: Had about 25 minutes to prove that he can’t only perform in cup games but in the Premier League as well and he had a goal to show for it. Was a good sub. 7/10

Morata: Replaced Giroud but didn’t really impact the game. Missed a sitter and took a needless yellow card. 4/10

Zappacosta: Brought much needed calm to Chelsea’s defence after replacing Marcos Alonso. 6/10

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
