Chelsea Player Ratings Vs Middlesbrough: Palmer, Disasi, Sterling, others shine as Mudryk anonymous

Chelsea made it to their first major final under Mauricio Pochettino – and did it in style.

The Blues needed to stage a comeback after losing to Middlesbrough 1-0 in the first leg.

And Cole Palmer, Axel Disasi, Enzo Fernandez, Noni Madueke and an own goal Jonny Howson have booked the Blues a Wembley spot.

Djordje Petrovic 6

Well beaten by Rogers’ excellent strike, having been relatively untroubled to that point.

Axel Disasi 8

Started and finished the move for the third goal and influential in the second, after bursting into the box and squaring a cross after Sterling’s back-heel. Rogers stepped inside him for the Boro goal but the tie was long since done.

Thiago Silva 7

Composed defensively when called on and positive with his passing.

Levi Colwill 7

Back in the middle, he was a little jittery from the off but grew into the game as Chelsea took complete control. Avoided the yellow card which would have ruled him out of the final.

Ben Chilwell 8

Made the opening goal with a dart inside and incisive pass for Sterling. Boro found it hard to pick him up on an impressive return to the starting lineup.

Moises Caicedo 7

Stood up to the physical threat posed by Boro and recycled the ball well.

Enzo Fernandez 8

Burst into the box to finish smartly and put Chelsea ahead in the tie. A bustling performance.

Raheem Sterling 9

The architect of the first three goals, crossing for Broja before twice linking up with Disasi. Had the beating of his man down the right all night.

Cole Palmer 9

Finished calmly to make it 4-0 after pickpocketing Daniel Barlaser on the edge of the box and made his second goal look easy, an unerring strike into the corner.

Mykhailo Mudryk 4

Anonymous or wasteful in a poor 45-minute run out, notable only for a booking for dissent. Hooked at half-time.

Armando Broja 6

Credited with Howson’s own goal, although probably thankful for the defender’s intervention after a sloppy touch. Pressed well but rarely a goal threat.


Noni Madueke (Mudryk 45′) 7

Capped a lively performance with a well-taken goal, albeit long after the tie was over as a contest.

Alfie Gilchrist (Chilwell 65′) 6

Solid at right-back.

Conor Gallagher (Broja 65′) 8

Grabbed two assists with a smart balls for Palmer and Madueke in an impressive run out.

Carney Chukwuemeka (Caicedo 71′) 7

Composed as Chelsea saw out the game.

Leo Castledine (Sterling 84′) 6

Made his debut late on.

Not used: Badiashile, Washington, Curd, Bergstrom.
