Chelsea took a giant step closer to Champions League qualification with a convincing 2-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.
A goal in each half from the in-form Kai Havertz sealed the points for Thomas Tuchel’s side, who keep their tails on third-placed Leicester ahead of a massive Champions League semi-final second-leg tie against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Here are our Chelsea player ratings from the 2-0 victory against Scott Parker’s side:
🎙Tuchel on Mason Mount:
🔹”He has the full package, mentally, in terms of talent and physically. And the most important part is his character, he has his feet on the ground and he’s a nice guy. He comes to Cobham every day to learn something new and have new experiences.” ‘
🔹”He is the guy who can recover very fast, he’s a very physical player and is fully adapted to Premier League football. He has big self confidence in a very, very positive way. It’s a pleasure to have him, be at his side and guide him and support him. It’s impressive”
🔹”He’s not affected by all the praise. This is maybe the most important part. He seems to be a guy who likes the sport, and feels an obligation to make the most out of it. And he wants it absolutely badly, so it’s a top mix.”
