This West London derby was Chelsea's game in hand over their rivals for Champions League qualification. After a disappointing FA Cup semifinal defeat to Manchester City, the Blues knew that taking all three points back down the Fulham Road was crucial in determining how they finish the 2012-13 Premier League season.
After a nervous start, Chelsea found their rhythm and took the lead with a stunning strike from David Luiz after 30 minutes. A brace of typical John Terry goals from the recalled captain sealed the win, which saw Chelsea move up to third in the league, still with a game in hand over Arsenal.
The following are the ratings for Chelsea's starting 11. Every player starts at 5/10, and points are awarded or deducted based on attitude, work-rate and contribution to the game. A goal scored by a defender is weighted higher than one scored by a striker, and red cards and missed penalties get an automatic one-point deduction. Statistics are taken from WhoScored.com.
