Demba Ba - Juan Mata

Petr Cech – 6

The goalkeeper was a little caught out by the early goal but was rarely tested thereafter.

Cesar Azpilicueta – 7

Azpilicueta has made the left-back position his own recently and continued his consistency.

John Terry – 8

Has been Chelsea’s best player this season and marked his 400th appearance with a goal.

Gary Cahill – 7

Scored the equaliser and was solid alongside the skipper for the most part.

Branislav Ivanovic – 5

Caught napping again for the Southampton goal and showed a serious lack of technique on the ball.

Michael Essien – 3

Early error led to a goal and kept giving the ball away.

Ramires – 9

The Brazilian isn’t always the best on the ball but he worked tirelessly, was good both sides of the ball and assisted Ba for the third.

Juan Mata – 8

Great to see Juan back in the line-up and even better to see him created chances & putting in a good display.

Oscar – 6

Forced a save or two but has been quiet lately. Doesn’t get enough passes off.

Eden Hazard – 6.5

A constant threat and linked up well with Mata a few times but was a little predictable today.

Fernando Torres – 6

Made himself a nuisance some of the time but often takes too long to act and turns slower than a jumbo jet at times.


Frank Lampard – 6.5

Played an important part for Terry’s goal and put in a composed display.

Demba Ba – 7

Has he earned himself a start against Sunderland with his performance and goal?

John Obi Mikel -N/A

Came on late to shore up the midfield and help see out the result.


It was hardly a vintage performance from Jose Mourinho’s side but the manager will be happy with the character shown by Chelsea when they came from behind to beat Southampton 3-1 at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are second in the Premier League table and four points behind London rivals Arsenal.

    How can you rate Brana 5 ? he was awesome today. They didn’t get past him once. Rami was hopeless in the first half but made up for it in the second. Torres was tremendous. Loads of fighting spirit and made a real nuisance of himself.
