See how the Chelsea players fared in this game

Mendy: Kept yet another clean sheet. Was well protected by his defence, and when they needed him, he made a good save late in the first half. 7/10

Azpilicueta: He really seems very suited to the right centre-back role in Chelsea’s back three. Well positioned at all times, and his decision making was always spot on. 7/10

Christensen: His excellent form continued yet again with another top performance in the centre of the back three. Won his aerial duels, was comfortable on the ball and silenced Calvert-Lewin all game. 8/10

Zouma: Got a rare start under Tuchel, and he didn’t disappoint. Played on the left side of the back three and had an interesting battle with Calvert-Lewin. 7/10

Reece James: Very comfortable evening from the young defender. Didn’t have much defensive work to do and was rarely troubled on his flank. 7/10

Jorginho: Converted his penalty with relative ease and was good on the ball all game. 7/10

Kovacic: Was good and sleek on the ball as usual. Gave a good pass to Havertz to win the penalty after the break. Good game. 7/10

Alonso: Brilliant game from the Spaniard. Played in a good into a dangerous area for Havertz to score, but it was eventually judged as a Ben Godfrey own goal. He was denied a brilliant goal with a fine save from Pickford. Went forward at will. 8/10

Hudson-Odoi: Good game especially in the first half, as he was a constant threat to the Toffee goal in the first half. 7/10

Werner: Looked short of confidence as he squandered some chances yet again. Got into good positions, but he needs to start finding the net. 6/10

Kai Havertz: Played as a false nine and have a good account of himself. Scored a good goal that was eventually recorded as own goal. Had a lovely goal ruled out in the second half for handball. He also won the penalty that Jorginho converted to seal Chelsea’s victory. 9/10

Subs

Mount: Came on for Hudson-Odoi after 65 minutes. Brought in energy to Chelsea’s press and attack. Unluckily for him, Werner missed a chance that could have earned him an assist. 6/10

Kante: Came on late for Kovacic in the 76th minute. He did okay.

Pulisic: Very late sub as he replaced Werner on the 8th minute.
