James Robson was at Stamford bridge and ran the rule of the Chelsea players…
Hardly had anything to do – but without the fans in the crowd you can hear just how well he communicates with those in front of him.
Had a grab at Suarez in the box and was fortunate not to concede a penalty. Other than he was in total control.
Crucial tackle on Suarez early on stopped a dangerous break. Never troubled in the air. Outstanding.
Was up for the physical challenge of Suarez from the start. And when he sent the striker tumbling early on, it was a pointer to how he would boss proceedings.
A real threat down the right as he pushed high and constantly stretched the Atletico defence with his runs in behind.
High-energy performance. One minute winning the ball in the midfield, then picking up the pieces on the edge of the box to keep the pressure on Atletico. Brilliant.
Heavily involved as Chelsea controlled midfield, constantly looking for gaps to hurt Atletico with his passing.
A performance full of attacking intent. His runs inside caused Atletico a lot of problems.
A reminder of the form he showed earlier in the season and a goal that put Chelsea in total control and on their way to the quarters.
Deployed in a wider role than in recent weeks and he linked well with Werner and Ziyech in a fluid attack. Clever movement and use of the ball.
Provided Ziyech with the cross for Chelsea’s opener. His seventh assist of the season. It’s not all about goals.
Christian Pulisic (Ziyech, 77’) 5
Another forward full of running and movement to worry Atletico.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (Werner, 83’) 5
Had a shot at goal as soon as he came on. Exploited tired legs.
Scored with his very first touch. At this rate he may get a start up front.
Ben Chilwell (Alonso, 90) N/A
Brought on in the final moments of stoppage time.
Subs not used: Kepa, Caballero, Gilmour, Anjorin, Giroud.
