Chelsea were back to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday as the blues came out as 3-2 winners despite having to play over half of the match with 10 men.

Stamford Bridge found itself in a state of shock as Chelsea found themselves 2-0 up inside 25 minutes. A rarity given the last time Chelsea scored 2 in the opening half hour at home, was way back in December 2022 (2-0 win vs Bournemouth). Gallagher’s red card complicated matters and made sure Chelsea made a meal of what should have been a comfortable afternoon.

Here are the player ratings given by CFCDaily after Sunday’s victory. These are the views of CFCDaily and nobody else.

Robert Sanchez: 6.5/10: Shattered with nerves for the majority of the game with a point to prove attitude against his ex club, that was seen with his emotions at full time. Sanchez made a couple of vital saves at times but also provided risky distribution and almost found himself in unforgivable territory with him nearly rolling the ball into his own net. He has some convincing to do to be number 1 in the coming years.

Axel Disasi: 7/10: Due to James’ red card against Newcastle and Gusto being unavailable due to injury, Disasi had to adapt into being a makeshift RB. Given Disasi is a CB he did his job really well for large parts. Brighton did see a vulnerability and used him as the possible weak point. The build up to Buonanotte’s goal targeted his side of the pitch but from that point Disasi dealt with it well.

Thiago Silva: 8/10: Dealt with Brighton’s persistent attacks, quality clearance to deny an almost certain goal. Continues to bounce back after mistakes and that is backed up on paper making 10 clearances.

Benoît Badiashile: 8/10: Similar to Thiago Silva, Rolls Royce of a centre back in the making. A class assist to set up Enzo’s goal and done his job defensively making an incredible 8 clearances. Badiashile’s ability to start attacks is an underrated aspect, completing 2 long balls as well as 2 key passes. One of Chelsea’s best players and it’s vital he stays fit.

Levi Colwill: 7.5/10: Due to Cucurella’s suspension, Colwill was straight back into the Chelsea team and soon found himself on the scoresheet, scoring his first goal for Chelsea. A significant moment in his career, especially the opposition. Apart from the goal, Colwill had a quiet afternoon where not a lot was noticeable. Given Chelsea were down to 10 men for the majority of the game that can only be a good thing as Brighton continued to knock on the door but they didn’t get an answer.

Enzo Fernandez: 9/10: First 2 Premier League goals for Chelsea which have been long overdue. World class footballer and I’m not sure why he has his critics a times.

Moises Caicedo: 7/10: Good performance but nothing standout worthy.

Raheem Sterling: 6.5/10: Forgot he was even in the game for large parts. 

Conor Gallagher: 2/10: Very fortunate that we won the game. 2 moments of madness and really weak leadership. Should have him teammates to thank but to get sent off in the first half is pure madness. 

Mykhaylo Mudryk: 6/10: Won the penalty to make it 3-1 but overall had a quiet game.

Nicolas Jackson: 6/10: Great assist but couldn’t get in the game.
