Chelsea player ratings vs Brentford: Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger separated as Timo Werner frustrated

I

It was a dismal afternoon for Chelsea as they were beaten 4-1 at home by west London rivals Brentford.

here’s how Thomas Tuchéside rated at Stamford Bridge

Edouard Mendy 5

Dropped by his defenders, who left him totally exposed for all four goals. Will not be happy to be beaten at his near post for Janelt’s second.

Cesar Azpilicueta 5

I was sucked in to leave Janelt in space for the Brentford goal. Completely out of place when Eriksen scored.

Thiago Silva 5

Far from his best day at the office. Part of a defense that has been set apart by the pace of Brentford’s breaks.

Toni Rudiger 5

Scored an absolute world and then watched Brentford tear Chelsea apart. I can’t help but think his wild celebrations fueled a slack on the whole team.

Marcos Alonso 5

Very involved from an attacking point of view and posed many questions to the Brentford defense before being replaced in the second half.

N’Golo Kante 6

If he had been a little wiser, he might have won a penalty in the first half. Nothing like as efficient as usual.

Ruben Loftus-plays 5

Shaped one of Chelsea’s few chances in the first half with his deep run. Didn’t have enough of an impact on the game.

Mason Mount 6

Should have done better with a first half. His runs caused Brentford some problems when cutting inside Ziyech, but didn’t do enough when they were in good positions.

Hakim Ziyesh 6

Playing in his preferred system, he struggled to stretch Brentford until he was tipped to the left side when he started to do damage.

Kai Havertz 6

Fell deep to get involved and tie the game. Thought he had scored before the goal was ruled out for handball and then missed two golden chances to put Chelsea back in the game.

Timo Werner 4

Won a merry from Rudiger for his waste and it was another day he got frustrated. Especially when implemented in the second, but choosing to run wide, rather than heading straight for the goal.

Substitutes

Reece James (Alonso, 55) 5

Made a difference when he came with his runs down the right. Should he have been there from the start?

Mateo Kovacic (Werner, 65) 5

His introduction helped Chelsea put the pressure on, but by then the game was lost.

Romelu Lukaku (Kante, 65) 5

Didn’t get the serve to have a chance of bringing Chelsea back in – but it was remarkable how much more space his arrival provided for Havertz.

Unused: Kepa, Christensen, Sarr, Jorginho, Saul, Barkley
