MK Dons vs Chelsea: Player Ratings

by -

The Chelsea player ratings for their FA Cup 4th Round clash away at MK Dons.

Starting XI:

Courtois 6- Had very little to do throughout the game and had no chance with the goal after it took a huge deflection.

Baba Rahmen 7- Baba had a rare start for the Blues, and produced a very good display going forward, always looking to run in behind the Dons defence and should’ve had more of his crosses finished off.

Cahill 6- Like the rest of the back four Cahill didn’t have much to do defensively, but gave a solid performance on his return to the starting XI.

Terry (c) 6- Marshalled the defence well as always. Looking back to his best and an integral part of the team moving forward.

Ivanovic 7- A force going forward, but still looks susceptible at the back.

Matic 7- Broke up the very few MK Dons attacks well and was always looking to take the ball forward.

Fabregas 7- Was a big part in Chelsea keeping 68% possession and dictating the tempo, carried on from his great performance at the Emirates last week.

Loftus-Cheek 8- The 20 year-old put in a fantastic performance, getting stuck into challenges and provided a great assist for Oscar’s second goal.

Oscar 10- A brilliant first-half hat-trick from the Brazilian put Chelsea firmly in charge of the tie.

Hazard 8- Looked somewhat back to his best. Scoring for the first time in 29 matches from the penalty spot and setting up Bertrand Traore soon after.

Costa 6- Looked sharp, but couldn’t get in on the act. Taking one off of his team-mate Oscar when he looked certain to score. Solid performance from the Spaniard.

Subs:

Traore 7- Scored Chelsea’s fifth goal after a great run from deep. Looked sharp and showed signs of his potential.

Pedro 6- Looked lively when he came on, but had no real chances.

Willian 5- Chelsea had taken their foot off the gas by the time Willian came on, and he failed to make an impact.

Manager:

Guus Hiddink 9- Picked a strong team, showing his intent to win the FA Cup. And made substitutions at the right time, especially the introduction of young Bertrand Traore.
