Chelsea player ratings: Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi sparkle in Burnley win

Kepa Arrizabalaga

One good save from a cheeky Dwight McNeil free-kick. Had little to do other than that in the first half, but his kicking was good.

Had little to do in the second half as well, with Burnley not really threatening. 6

Reece James

One sloppy moment where he gave away the ball and then a free-kick. But after that, excellent. A stunning cross for Tammy Abraham’s goal and a good shot himself.

Some of his crosses in the second half were superb again and defensively he was strong. Starting to make a real impact in this side. 9

Antonio Rudiger

Strong in the tackle against the physical Chris Wood. Good on the ball as well, with some nice passes out to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Looked very strong in the second half as well. Never easy when balls are being thumped forward, but he dealt with it well. 7

Andreas Christensen

A big moment for him as not getting much of a chance this season, but he dealt with the pressure well from the physical Wood.

Even better in the second half where he was strong in the challenge and timed his tackles to good effect. 7

Cesar Azpilicueta

One of those games where the skipper was set on imposing himself and looking to be physical. Didn’t get forward too much in the first half.

An excellent cross for the third goal in the second half. Another decent display from the Blues skipper. 7


Looking to shake off Jeff Hendrick, but controlled the game well in the first half. A typically cool penalty to give the Blues the lead.

In the second half he really controlled things more. Had more space to work with and just pulled the strings with a lack of pressure. 7

Ross Barkley

Neat and tidy on the ball and linked well on the right. A vital clearance off the line as well to keep the Blues in the lead.
