Chelsea Player Ratings vs Juventus: Thiago Silva, Hudson-Odoi, others stand out as Alonso not up to standard

Edouard Mendy

Not much he could with Federico Chiesa’s fine finish ten seconds into the second half. Didn’t have a lot of saves to make but still had to pick the ball out of his net. 7

Cesar Azpilicueta

Played some very clever passes to his teammates but they didn’t capitalise on them. Tuchel wanted more speed to the Blues attacks and hooked his captain after the hour for Hudson-Odoi. 7

Andreas Christensen

Crunching tackle on Betancur inside 45 seconds of the game got him off to a flier but it went downhill as Juve’s front two rattled him. Improved after half time but Chiesa got the better of him overall. 6

Thiago Silva

Looked the most comfortable of the Blues back three. Good on the ball and won his individual duels. 7

Antonio Rudiger

Gave away a couple of cheap fouls in the first half in silly areas. Beaten to the punch by Chiesa for Juve’s opener. Erratic. 6

Marcos Alonso

Picked up an absolutely needless yellow card on 19 minutes by pushing Juan Cuadrado with minimal contact. Turned up at right wing back at one point for some reason. Poor and was hooked at half time. 5


Played his teammates into trouble with a wretched pass in the seventh minute that Juve didn’t punish. Very off the pace, Juventus pressed him and he didn’t like it. Subbed just before the hour mark. 6

Mateo Kovacic

Played two hospital passes in the first 20 minutes that led to chances for Juve. All over the place for the majority of the game, very far from his best. 6

Hakim Ziyech

Totted up a few fouls early on and wasn’t really involved too much, overhit passes when he did and struggled in the first half. Given another chance from the start by Tuchel but another one he didn’t take. 6

Kai Havertz

Very quiet in the opening 45 as he didn’t really seem to know where he was playing. Much the same after the break, floated around without having much of an impact at all. Missed a decent chance with the last play of the game as well. 6

Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea didn’t seem to want to play to his other strengths in the first half rather than just booting the ball up to him. Had one header go wide in the second half. Fired over a great chance to make it 1-1 with eight minutes to go. 7


Ben Chilwell (for Alonso, 46′)

Hadn’t touched the ball before Chiesa fired Juventus ahead. Didn’t see much of it after that either. 6

Callum Hudson-Odoi (for Ziyech, 59′)

Had a few opportunities to run at Alex Sandro and got the better of him a few times as well. Lively. 7

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (for Azpilicueta, 59′)

Didn’t quite have the impact required but he was a decent presence in the midfield at least. 6

Trevoh Chalobah (for Jorginho, 59′)

Played, in effect, the Jorginho role in screening the back five. Did OK. 6

Ross Barkley (for Christensen, 75′)

Got the ball in some good areas and played some good passes. 6
