Chelsea entered Matchday 6 of the Champions League with their fate out of their hands. All they could do was beat Group E minnows, Danish champions FC Nordsjælland and hope that Shakhtar Donetsk could beat Juventus in the Ukraine to enable the reigning European champions to advance.
Despite recording a 6-1 home win, the Blues became the first defending champions to exit the competition at the group stage as Juventus won their game 1-0.
It was a slow start at Stamford Bridge, with the hosts needing two penalties to take a 1-0 lead before grabbing a second goal just before half-time. The fitness levels of the two sides proved to be the difference after the break, as despite conceding a goal seconds after the restart, Chelsea went on to dominate with the final score not flattering to deceive in the slightest.
Many of the Blues players looked far more convincing than they have in other recent games, so here are my individual ratings for each of the starting 11, plus substitutes. I start every player on 5/10 and any positive or negative contributions are added or subtracted accordingly.
