Chelsea player ratings vs Burnley:

Chelsea enjoyed a major second-half turn around at Turf Moor on Saturday to batter Burnley.




Reece James opened the scoring before a Kai Havertz double, with Christian Pulisic adding a fourth after a difficult first-half in which the home side created the better of the chances.


Here are the Chelsea's player rating.


Edouard Mendy 6


After his Wembley heroics he was so nearly embarrassed when he got his punch totally wrong in the first half – but McNeil couldn’t take advantage. Also saved by Silva’s goal-line clearance.


Trevoh Chalobah 7


One really important interception cut out a McNeil chance – but still needed help from Jorginho after dithering on the ball. Stood up well under pressure.


Thiago Silva 8


Just gets better with age. Another goal-line clearance from him – after his one in the Carabao Cup Final – to deny Weghorst in the first half.


Antonio Rudiger 7


Given a tough time by Lennon in the first half – but still pushed forward to get up in support. More in control after the break.


Reece James 9


That’s what Chelsea have been missing for the past two months. The table could look a lot different right now if he’d not been out with a hamstring injury. One brilliant goal and an assist. Top class.


N’Golo Kante 7


His runs through the middle relieved the pressure on a number of occasions when Burnley pressed hard.


Jorginho 6


Some good use of the ball, but struggled to find spaces in between Burnley’s defenders – particularly in the first half.


Saul Niguez 6


Another positive performance – even out of position at left wingback. Got into good areas and first half cross to James could have given Chelsea an early lead.


Mason Mount 6


Definitely benefits from James’ return. Hurt Burnley with his penetrating runs inside and use of the ball in the final third.


Kai Havertz 8


After a subdued first half, he came to life after the break. That was helped by better service, but also his movement – particularly when drifting to the far post to head in his first.


Christian Pulisic 7


Saw plenty of the ball, but often shackled. Really good cross to find Havertz’ for Chelsea’s second goal and got on the score-sheet himself.


Subs:


Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Kante, 70) 6


Played a wingback after playing at centre back in midweek. Looked as comfortable on the ball as ever.


Mateo Kovacic (James, 70) 6


Just added to Chelsea’s midfield control.


Timo Werner (Mount, 78) 5


Tried to run down tired Burnley
