GK Petr Cech: 7.0
Typical Cech performance, made a great finger tip save to stop Podolski from grabbing a goal, but did let in a goal.
D Ashley Cole: 7.5
Cole was strong in defense and still lets no one by. Ashley made many surging runs that led to Chelsea opportunities. Good all around performance.
D John Terry: 8.0
The man seems to play better when facing controversy. Terry was a stone wall in defense and cool as ever in stressful times for the back line. Not many players can play like this facing a 4 match ban, I guess that's why he is a legend at the Bridge.
D David Luiz: 8.0
The Brazilian seems to have a clamp on the second central defending position. Another great performance from Luiz, strong in the air and let nothing by him. Quietly becoming one of Chelsea's best players.
D Branislav Ivanovic: 7.0
Didn't really have much to do, but when called upon, did very well.
M John Obi Mikel: 8.5
Shut down many Arsenal attacks, made no dumb mistakes and held possession for the club. Mikel's great performances seem to go unnoticed, but this was one of the best of his career. The Nigerian is becoming one of the best at what he does.
M Ramires: 7.0
Ramires is doing much better since returning to his natural central role. Was great in defence and made many great surging runs, still loses possession far to much.
M Juan Mata: 9.0
Juan Mata has been class ever since rejoining the Chelsea squad. Held possession great and was very dangerous the whole match. Grabbed a assist and a goal, both from set pieces. The chemistry between Mata and Torres is second to none. Next to David Silva, Mata is the best midfielder in the Premiership.
M Eden Hazard: 7.0
Showed cameos of is world class talent, but once again compared to the way he started the season it was a average performance. May be the hardest person to get off the ball in England but needs to be more selfish sometimes and look for his own shot.
M Oscar: 6.5
Oscar's first Premier League start was a pretty rough one compared to the way he played vs. Juventus. His first touch was excellent but is just figuring out how to play in the league.
F Fernando Torres: 9.0
When Torres came to Chelsea he was asked to do certain things. Score goals, draw fouls, hold up play and defend; he accomplished every single one of these things in this match. Torres seemed to be his old self today and scored a delicious volley off a Juan Mata free kick. He looked dangerous the whole match and always looked likely to score. The Torres from Liverpool is finally back and El Nino looks ready to finally lead the Chelsea attack.
D Gary Cahill: 6.0
Came on for Luiz after he picked up a injury, didn't see much action.
D Ryan Bertrand: 7.0
Came on to bolster the defense and did a excellent job of it.
F Victor Moses: 6.5
Came on for a struggling Oscar, Moses looks dangerous every time he is on the ball, but has yet to find is spot at Chelsea.
Man of the Match: Fernando Torres
