Chelsea player ratings vs Atletico Madrid: Giroud scores sensational goal as Christensen stars

Edouard Mendy

Very nervy beginning as a heavy touch in his box almost allowed Felix to capitalise. Some of his decision making was very interesting. Barely had a save to make all game. 6

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Got forward at will in the first half but his crossing into the box or final ball was lacking. Felt like he could have done a bit more throughout. 6

Wasn’t unduly troubled by Thomas Lemar and was impressive in the second half as Atletico target his side. 7

Antonio Rudiger

Fairly comfortable dealing with Atletico’s counter attacking throughout and continued his resurgence in form. 7

Dealt well with Luis Suarez in the first half and his distribution was good. Stood up well after Chelsea went ahead with some big clearing headers. 8

Industrious but ineffective in the first 45 minutes. Picked up the pace after the break but wasn’t quite at his fluent best. Subbed with 15 minutes to go. 6

Will miss the second leg of the tie after picking up a booking with 40 seconds of kick off. One outrageous piece of skills after the break flummoxed two Madrid midfielders. A bundle of energy but was far more disciplined in a tactical sense than usual. 7

Timo Werner

Had the best chance of the opening period when he forced a comfortable save from Oblak from a tight angle. Quiet in the second half bar one chance he missed from a tight angle. 6

Olivier Giroud

Not really much of note before he decided to brighten the entire…
