How the West Londoners fared in their triumoh over the Gunners.
Chelsea kept up their credentials for being Premier League champions this season with a convincing 2-0 victory over London rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa in either half settled the match and here is how Jose Mourinho’s men rated.
13. Thibaut Courtois (Cech, 24′) – 6
Was forced off the pitch midway through the first half as after a heavy collision with Alexis Sanchez the goalkeeper was bleeding from the ear and had to go to hospital.
2. Branislav Ivanovic – 7
Kept the Chile international under wraps down the left hand side and continues to greatly impress at right-back.
24. Gary Cahill – 6
Probably should have been sent off for a studs up challenge on Sanchez, but made up for that with a solid display in the second half.
26. John Terry – 7
Danny Welbeck barely got a sniff in the match as the captain kept the England international quiet and organised the defence brilliantly.
28. Cesar Azpilicueta – 8
Defensively there are few full-backs in the entire division better than this Spain international who will continue to keep Filipe Luis out of the starting XI.
