Rating Rafa Benitez's Chelsea Players Against Sunderland

Chelsea secured a vital 3-1 victory at Sunderland on Saturday to fly to the Club World Cup in a buoyant mood.

The Black Cats didn't offer much of a fight initially, succumbing to some superb football from the Blues, who raced into a 3-0 lead with a brace from Fernando Torres and a Juan Mata goal.

The Mackems pulled one back, through Adam Johnson, but despite salvaging a little pride, it was not enough and Rafa Benitez could breathe a sigh of relief after a second victory in a week.

Here are the complete ratings for the Blues. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below and whether this represents a turning point in the new era under Benitez.
