Chelsea player ratings against Southampton: Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount steal the show as Blues go wild


Helsea provided an emphatic response to back-to-back defeats as they tore through Southampton on Saturday.

The Blues were four ahead after just half an hour as the Saints imploded with Marcos Alonso, Mason Mount, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz all on the scoresheet before the hosts even showed up.

Werner and Mount both grabbed a brace after the break as Chelsea continued to pile on the misery on Southampton.

Here’s how Jack Rosser rated the Blues…

Edouard Mendy 7

Made a superb second half save from Che Adams. Had very little else to do.

Andreas Christensen 7

Largely indifferent to Southampton attackers, calm on the ball.

Thiago Silva 7

Could have spent the afternoon sunbathing for all the threat Southampton posed.

Antonio Rudiger 7

Recovered from a dodgy pass early on and easily contained any rare forward forays for the Saints.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek 8

Played out of position at right-back but was a real threat in the first half.

N’Golo Kante 8

Dominated the midfield and looked to go forward whenever possible – got into a good position in the build-up to the fifth goal.

Mateo Kovacic 7

Quicker at everything in midfield and was sharp to get the ball up to the front line.

Marcos Alonso 8

Superb finish through the legs of Fraser Forster to put the show on the road from the start.

Mason mount 9

A superb move to set up Alonso, a fantastic first goal and was quickest on the ball when getting his second. Great performances.

Kai Havertz 7

Bullied Southampton defenders and was in the right place at the right time to take his goal.

Timo Werner 8

Probably could have had more than his two having hit the woodwork three times. Southampton defenders couldn’t handle his pace.


Christian Pulisic 7

Lively in the build-up to Mount’s second goal.

Reece James 7

Buried in the back three well after replacing Silva.

hakim ziyech 6

Gave the Southampton defense something to think about but had little impact.
