Rating Players Chelsea vs MIDDLESBROUGH 5-0


Turnbull: 5.5 -
The four boys in front of him let him down, badly. Constant defensive gaffes gifted Chelsea possession and their attacks more often than not led to a goal. Kept a strong hand to palm away an Anelka shot.

Grounds: 4.5 -
Needs to re-learn the classic book: Defence For Dummies. Was replaced on the hour mark for Johnson. Gave away possession far too frequently.

Wheater: 5.5 -
His breakthrough season last year is a thing of the past. This defence needed a leader, and neither he, nor Riggott, possessed the necessary skills to impose themselves.

Riggott: 5.5 -
Poor communication with Wheater could have granted Chelsea even more goals than they had already been gifted.

Taylor: 4.5 -

His poor clearance led to Chelsea's fourth goal. Deserves a dressing down.

Johnson: 5.5 -

Middlesbrough's midfield was off form, but alas not as collectively bad as the side's shambolic defence. Got forward okay...

O'Neil: 5.0 -
Broke up one passage of Chelsea play well but struggled in a midfield battle against a Blues side that was far from full strength.

Shawky: 5.5 -
Began a few decent counter attacks but by the time he played a give and go Chelsea would have tracked back and their forward play would be rumbled.

Downing: 6.5 -
Tried to turn the game but he was always facing a losing battle. One good strike with his unfavoured right foot to note, but it fizzed over the bar. A botched free kick with Afonso Alves summed up 'Boro's afternoon.

Mido: 6.5 -
Tried hard to penetrate but was impotent for 90 minutes.


Digard: 5.0 -

Alves: 5.0 -

Johnson: n/a -


Cudicini: 6.5 -
Was hardly called upon. Could have brought some sandwiches with him onto the pitch and had a mid match snack while enjoying the flow in front of him, but sensibly elected not to.

Bosingwa: 7.5 -
Answered some of his critics claims today that while his attacking prowess is something to marvel, his defensive duty is suspect. Enjoyed a battle with Downing that he emerged on top of time after time. Tackled well.

Terry: 7.0 -
For someone that was supposedly injured midweek his recovery times are outstanding. Was provided with the perfect run out prior to the midweek Champions League clash.

Alex: 7.0 -
Blocked well but with Middlesbrough only having one shot on target of note his main duty was to provide a link to the midfield and maintain possession.

Bridge: 7.5 -
Got forward well, and in the absence of Ashley Cole has proved for both club and country that he can make the position his own. Chelsea are spoiled for choice for full backs.

Belletti: 8.0 -
Manufactured Cheslea's second goal out of nothing and to turn the game. One for the replays.

Lampard: 8.0 -
Started out quiet, but his range of passing was sound. And, just as you think he hasn't enjoyed as many shots on goal as he is accustomed to, he pops up to round off a well worked goal.

Mikel: 7.0 -
Was initially sloppy in possession and gave pointless balls away, but grew into the game well along with his team-mates.

Kalou: 8.5 -
Scolari offered him a rare start and he recorded a respectable brace to provide his manager with food for thought.

Malouda: 8.0 -
Looked out of place last year but now is looking settled. Ran well, cut inside well, and scored.

Anelka: 6.5 -

Hmmm.... wasn't bad, but wasn't great.


Sinclair: 6.5 -

Ferreira: 6.0 -

Deco: 6.0 -

The Blues Gilas Boro Lima Gol Tanpa Balas...

The Blues
melanjutkan performa positifnya di pekan kedelapan. Bahkan pasukan Luiz Felipe Scolari mampu mencuri tiga angka penuh dengan cara yang elegan, yaitu mempermalukan tuan rumah Middlesbrough 5-0.

Hasil tersebut memantapkan posisi Chelsea di puncak klasemen sementara Liga Primer dengan 20 poin, unggul tiga angka dari Liverpool yang hingga berita ini diturunkan masih akan meladeni Wigan Athletic di Anfield.

Adapun Middlesbrough tertahan di posisi 12, tetap dengan sembilan poin. Posisi pasukan Gareth Southgate itu juga terancam tergeser bila Wigan, Sunderland, Everton maupun Bolton Wanderers memenangi laga mereka hari ini.

Pesta gol Chelsea dimulai di paruh kedua, dengan gol pembuka tercipta di babak pertama. Adalah Salomon Kalou yang membuat tim tamu memimpin di menit 14, memanfaatkan kemelut di depan gawang Ross Turnbull.

Meski berstatus sebagai tim tamu, Chelsea tampil layaknya tuan rumah dengan terus menekan pertahanan Middlesbrough. Sejumlah peluang sempat tercipta, di antaranya lewat tendangan Kalou di menit 20, sontekan Frank Lampard beberapa menit kemudian dan sepakan Florent Malouda di menit 31. Akan tetapi hingga turun minum tak ada gol tambahan tercipta.

Baru di babak kedua Chelsea mengamuk. Juliano Belletti menjadi pencetak gol kedua The Blues di pertandingan ini, usai memanfaatkan bola sodoran Malouda di menit 51. Tendangan kerasnya menghujam tajam di sudut gawang Turnbull.

Dua menit berselang, nama Kalou kembali muncul di papan skor setelah ia berhasil menyarangkan bola ke gawang Middlesbrough melalui tendangan dari dalam kotak penalti.

Lampard tak ketinggalan menjebol gawang Turnbull. Ia sukses memaksimalkan umpan lambung Kalou dengan kepalanya di menit 63 untuk menjadikan skor menjadi 4-0.

Malouda akhirnya menutup pesta gol Chelsea di pertandingan ini dengan sontekannya, memanfaatkan bola rebound tendangan Nicolas Anelka yang masih mengenai mistar. Hingga peluit panjang dibunyikan, skor 5-0 bertahan dan Chelsea keluar sebagai pemenang.
