How the Blues rated against Villa at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea maintained their position at the top of the Premier League after beating Aston Villa 3-0 at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Oscar, Diego Costa and Willian
Here’s how the Blues rated:
13. Thibaut Courtois – 6
Never seriously tested by a Villa side that looked stunted in West London and dealt with some long range efforts from Fabian Delph easily.
2. Branislav Ivanovic – 7
Is becoming a brilliant attacking full-back after playing a fine ball through to Willian in the buildup to his side’s opener.
24. Gary Cahill – 6
Played well against his old club although was troubled by the pace of Gabriel Agbonlahor and earned a yellow card for bringing down the forward.
26. John Terry – 6
It was a physical afternoon for the captain, but in the end it was Terry’s side that came away with a clean-sheet and a positive result.
28. Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Filipe Luis is going to spend a little longer on the bench based on this performance from Azpilicueta, who also setup the third of the game.
