    Player ratings as Chelsea defeat Aston Villa with a Lukaku brace

    Player ratings as Chelsea defeat Aston Villa with a Lukaku brace

    Chelsea struggled but still defeated Aston Villa 3-0 on an open evening of football.


    Both Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic scored their first goals at Stamford Bridge as the Blues rode waves of early pressure to strike clinically and earn a crucial three points.

    Here’s how the players at Stamford Bridge were rated:



    Edouard Mendy – 8 – Gigantic. Mendy appeared as a rock solid barrier in front of the Villa forwards whenever his defense evaporated in front of them.

    Trevoh Chalobah – 8 – Exceptional in dealing with Villa incursions. Continues to argue for more minutes.


    Thiago Silva – 7 – A mishmash of sublime and mediocre. For the most part, he played poorly, with his lack of movement and spatial awareness being ruthlessly exposed by some Villa passing and movement, particularly in the first half. Chelsea’s lead was paradoxically preserved by a remarkable clearance off the line after Mendy had been beaten (and of his game-high four blocks).

    Antonio Rudiger – 8 – How did you think Antonio Rudiger’s football game went? Rugged, unforgiving, and impenetrable. Set the tone and was likely the only Chelsea defender capable of handling McGinn.

    Callum Hudson-Odoi – 7 – A solid performance up and down the flanks.

    Mateo Kovacic – 8 – A sensational burst from midfield, dancing through challenges before playing a phenomenal pass behind the defence, led to Chelsea’s opener. Another surge saw him score the second goal of the game with a simply stupendous finish from a tight angle. Was far more dominant than he has been in a Chelsea shirt, truly flying box-to-box and providing pressure in defence and attack.

    Saul – 4 – Will need time to get up to speed in the Premier League. Couldn’t get to grips with the pressure of the Villa midfield and didn’t win a single one of his 7 ground duels in the first-half. Was hooked at the break.

    Marcos Alonso – 7 – Not at his most lethal but still useful.


    Hakim Ziyech – 6 – Wasn’t the hub of everything as he usually is, but still played reasonably.


    Kai Havertz – 6 – A quiet evening for the German.


    Romelu Lukaku – 8 – Wasn’t rampaging over the Villa defence like he did Arsenal but was a constant presence all evening and scored the opening and closing goals. His first a delightful turn and neat finish, his second a piledriver from distance. There is terrifying potential for Lukaku in this Chelsea side with the way they play on the break. Three goals in three games is good but you sense this is only the start.





    Jorginho (for Saul 46′) – 7 – Came on for the wayward Saul and immediately helped stem the constant flow of Villa attacks.


    Cesar Azpilicueta (for Havertz 64′) – 7 – Just kept things moving until he produced a brilliant last second assist for Lukaku.


    Timo Werner (for Hudson-Odoi 82′) – n/a – Came on late.
