Chelsea player ratings vs West Brom – Thiago Silva reckless, Jorginho dismal, Mason Mount bright.

 

 

Edouard Mendy

The Senegal international was perhaps slightly caught out positionally for West Brom’s opening goal, scored by Matheus Pereira. But he could do little about the Brazilian’s second.

Mendy did well in the second period to stop the West Brom star from completing his hat-trick but was then beaten three more times. 5

 

Cesar Azpilicueta

The Blues skipper could do little about the West Brom goals, but he was part of a backline that was breached on five occasions. A poor afternoon. 4

Thiago Silva

The Brazilian’s return from a two-month injury lay-off lasted less than 30 minutes. He was booked early on for a foul on Pereira after Jorginho gifted possession to the West Brom winger.

Silva then brought down Okay Yokuslu moments after Christian Pulisic had put Chelsea ahead and was shown his second yellow. 3

 

Kurt Zouma

Trusted on the left side of the back three, Zouma was dominant in the air but was caught out by a long punt forward from Johnstone for the Baggies’ equaliser.

Wasn’t able to keep West Brom at bay in the second period as the visitors ran rampant. 4

Reece James

Like the rest of the Chelsea side, James started sluggishly but his performance improved after Chelsea went down to ten men.

He twice forced Johnstone into saves and produced several telling crosses from the right flank. Wasn’t at fault for any of the Baggies’ goals. 5
