Chelsea Player Ratings Vs Newcastle: Jackson, Maatsen, Mudryk, others shine

July 27th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Kepa Arrizabalaga – 6

Kepa was not busy but made one excellent save from Alex Murphy.

Reece James – 5

Auditioning for the captaincy, James looked rusty but, in his defence, he has been injured for over three months.

Trevoh Chalobah – 7

Produced several clearances against a good attack.

Bashir Humphreys – 7

Arguably the most inexperienced starter but was very composed once again.

Marc Cucurella – 4

Had been composed and tenacious in his defending but was caught out of position by Almiron who equalised.

Enzo Fernandez – 6

Usual controlled midfield display as Chelsea made marquee Newcastle signing Sandro Tonali look average.

Cesare Casadei – 7

Rarely ventured forward but looked composed.

Christopher Nkunku – 6

Unimpactful and outshone by the other attackers. His best role remains unclear.

Mykhailo Mudryk – 7

Not as electric and impactful as against Brighton but still looked confident.

Nicolas Jackson – 8

Opened the scoring with a composed 12th-minute finish having cleverly run in behind the defence. Played with real confidence but only got 45 minutes.

Ian Maatsen – 8

An accomplished tactical display featuring a cute assist to set up Jackson’s opener.

Connor Gallagher – 8

Forced Newcastle into countless errors with his pressing, set up a big chance for Nkunku and almost scored himself. Not bad with his future in doubt.

Andrey Santos – N/A

Malo Gusto – N/A

Carney Chukwuemeka – 6

His nice touches lifted the crowd in a flat second half for Chelsea.

Ben Chilwell – 7

Almost won it for Chelsea at the death, but for a superb save from Nick Pope.

Raheem Sterling – 5

Couldn’t strike up a partnership with Cucurella, not threatening.

Mason Burstow – N/A

Diego Moreira – 7

Almost won the match with a good dribble and shot that needed a good Pope save.
