Chelsea recorded their first win of the 2020/21 Champions League season with a 4-0 victory over Krasnodar at the Krasnodar Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Jorginho missed a first half penalty but his blushes were spared by Matvei Safonov bundling home Callum Hudson-Odoi’s weak effort at goal. Timo Werner then made no mistake from the spot when he was given the chance, with Hakim Ziyech then topping off a solid individual display ten minutes from the end.

There was still time for a fourth, as Christian Pulisic added gloss with a stoppage time drive.

Here are your Chelsea player ratings.

Jorginho (CM) – 5/10 – Missed the penalty in the first half with his classic skipping style, and after that was mostly a passenger – especially in the second half where Krasnodar gained control of midfield.

Kai Havertz (AM) – 6/10 –

Made a couple of trademark deep runs into the box in the first half but his influence, what there was of it in the first place, became non-existent after the break.

Mateo Kovacic (CM) – 5/10 –

Just like the Italian, Kovacic could not get a stranglehold on midfield, or offer anything of note, across the game as the Russians pushed for an equaliser before eventually falling further behind.
