helsea cemented their position in the Premier League top four with a routine win over Fulham on Saturday evening.

Wonderful save denied Aina’s deflected effort right on half time. Earlier he had to be sharp to push away Lookman’s low drive. 

Looks better in the centre of a three, but more than capable of playing on the right, too. Composed throughout.

Spared Gilmour in the first half when the midfielder lost possession to set up a Fulham attack. Stretched at times, but generally in control.

In the right place at the right time on a number of occasions. Like Abraham, he has been a victim of Tuchel’s reign after such an impressive start to the season.

Got a rollicking from Tuchel in the first half when failing to cut out a dangerous Fulham attack. Not his most offensive performance, but still got into threatening areas.

Full of energy and eager to impress. Very positive frequently showed for the ball. Touch let him down on a couple of occasions and Silva saved his blushes in the first half.

Wonderful touch and pass set up Havertz for Chelsea’s opener. Work-rate was immense playing in a deeper role. Chelsea will hope the knock he took to the back is not serious.

Looks to have established himself as Tuchel’s preferred choice at left wingback. Another high-energy performance – proving a dangerous outlet on the wing.
