Thank you for your reading and interest in the news Ben Chilwell 9, Thiago Silva 8, Wilfried Zaha 6: Chelsea v Crystal Palace player ratings and now with details

Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - CHELSEA RATINGS: Edouard Mendy – 7: Sharp reflexes to save a deflected shot in the second half but apart from that, was rarely called into action. Clean sheet on his Premier League debut. Reuters

Cesar Azpilicueta – 7: Chelsea’s captain was as dependable as ever, supporting Hudson-Odoi down the right and keeping Palace’s counter-attacks at bay. PA

Thiago Silva – 8: Forget the mistake against West Brom, the veteran Brazilian is already showing what he adds to Chelsea’s backline: an assured presence, leadership, and top-class positioning. Never looked troubled against Palace. Getty Images

Kurt Zouma – 9: After glancing a great chance wide, the Frenchman made no mistake of his second attempt, guiding home Chilwell’s cross for Chelsea’s second. Even without the goal, Zouma put in a top performance. Strong in the tackle, dominant in the air, and sharp anticipation throughout. AFP

Ben Chilwell – 9: One game into his Premier League career with Chelsea and already a clear upgrade on Marcos Alonso. Always an option on the left, excellent distribution and took his goal extremely well. Then provided a wonderful cross for Zouma’s goal. Dream debut. Getty Images

N’Golo Kante – 7: Operating in a midfield two with Jorginho, Kante was able to play to his strengths by breaking up play, protecting the defence and distributing forward passes. PA

Jorginho – 8: Trademark Jorginho performance. Helped Chelsea control possession, spread the play, gave away a few niggly fouls, then hopped, skipped and jumped his way to two penalties. Good game from the Italian. Reuters

Callum Hudson-Odoi – 7: Looked to be really enjoying himself, particularly in the second half. Was the more effective of Chelsea’s two wingers and provided cutting edge and service from the right. Surely he’s not going out on loan? PA

Kai Havertz – 7: The German just oozes class; the weight of his passing is flawless, and he glides across the pitch linking play and creating space. Lovely little dink over Sakho to earn Chelsea’s second penalty. Encouragingly for Chelsea, there is so much more to come from him. Getty Images

Timo Werner – 6: Deployed on the left wing, Werner was stifled in the first half and played a secondary role once Chelsea ran riot. Looks far more dangerous when played through the middle. Reuters

Tammy Abraham – 7: Led the line well, linked up play, and his movement pulled Palace defenders out of position. No goals but played his part in a dominant win. Wanted to take second Chelsea penalty but was overruled by captain Azpilicueta. PA

CRYSTAL PALACE RATINGS: Vicente Guaita – 6. Couldn’t do much about any of the goals and was sharp off his line when he needed to be. Reuters

Joel Ward – 7. The fact that most of Chelsea’s best attacks came down the opposite flank is testament to Ward’s performance. Kept Werner quiet much of the game. AFP

Cheikhou Kouyate – 7. Rock solid during a first half that saw Palace comfortably manage Chelsea’s attacks. Was not at fault for any of the goals. Reuters

Mamadou Sakho – 5. The Frenchman was emblematic of Palace’s implosion and gave away a sloppy penalty when he clipped Havertz. Reuters

Tyrick Mitchell – 5. Stood up well to Hudson-Odoi in the first half but the Chelsea winger won their duel in the second. Gave away a clear penalty on Abraham. AP

Andros Townsend – 6. Put in one sumptuous cross in the first half and looked like he could threaten on the break. Ultimately, though, he didn’t. PA

James McCarthy – 6. Sorry folks, no photos of McCarthy, which might be a reflection of how little of the ball he saw in this game. That said, he helped Palace keep their shape in the first half. Replaced midway through second half. AP

James McArthur – 6. Like his similarly named midfield partner, it was a tough outing with Palace rarely enjoying any spells of possession. PA

Eberechi Eze – 7. There were certainly glimpses during the game that hinted at why Eze is so highly rated as he tried to get on the ball and make things happen. AP

Wilfried Zaha – 6. Could barely stay on his feet in the first half – no, not from incessant diving but the slick surface. More involved in the second half but never really threatened. AFP

Jordan Ayew – 5. Can’t recall anything of note from the Ghanaian, whose biggest contribution was getting fouled in the lead-up to a Chelsea goal. Reuters

SUBS: Luka Milivojevic (67’) – 6. Introduced with Palace 2-0 down, the Serbian did not influence the game. Getty Images

Jairo Riedewald (72’) – 6. The same as Milivojevic. Reuters
