An important win for Chelsea as the Blues returned back to fourth position after beating Watford 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley were enough to seal the win for Chelsea.

Check out the player ratings for the game below:

Kepa: Had little to do, but was at his best when called upon. Made a good save from Danny Welbeck late in the game to keep a clean sheet. 7/10

Reece James: Had a shaky start with some awkward crosses, but he grew into the game and was solid and put in some dangerous balls into the box. 7/10

Christensen: Comfortable performance at the back, good on the ball and was generally solid. Much improvement from the previous game. 7.5/10

Zouma: Commanding performance in his first Premier League start in months. Ensured Deeney was missing until he was subbed off. Solid game and his only bad moment was a misplaced pass in a dangerous area. 8/10

Azpilicueta: Solid game as a left-back. Made sure his area was impenetrable and assisted Ross Barkley for his goal. 8/10

Kante: Made his defenders comfortable with his presence in front of the defence. Was very solid as he worked really hard in midfield. 8/10

Barkley: Assisted Giroud for Chelsea’s opener with a lovely pass and was at the right place to smash a fierce shot past Ben Foster. Had a really good game. 8.5/10

Mount: Made sure the middle ticked as he was everywhere in the middle with some good runs and connecting passes. 8/10

Willian: Scored a good penalty to keep Chelsea’s win beyond doubt. Forced Ben Foster into a good save and caused Watford trouble with his pace. 8/10

Pulisic: Had a real spark all through the game and caused Watford trouble with every touch. Won the penalty for Chelsea and kept being a handful for the visiting side. 8.5/10

Giroud: Scored a good goal with a brilliant finish. Brought his physical side to the game. 8/10

Substitutes: Gilmour: Kept things simple after replacing Kante on the 78th minute. Struggled with physical battles. 6/10

Hudson-Odoi: Came on for Willian and looked really rusty. 5/10

Loftus-Cheek: Had a good chance to score, but sent his header wide. Was very much involved in the game. 6/10

Tammy Abraham: Didn’t have a chance after coming on for Giroud. 5/10
