English giants Chelsea came to Perth, attracted 55,522 fans and conquered Glory with a 1-0 triumph after Pedro's early strike at Optus Stadium on Monday night.
12 – Marcin Bulka – 6.5
Wasn’t required to do much. Didn’t put a foot wrong with distribution albeit conservative.
3 – Marcos Alonso - 6
Constantly involved although he didn’t offer much attacking threat down the left. Solid with passing but Glory had some joy down the right. Subbed off at half-time.
30 – David Luiz – 7
Cool distribution and the occasional trundle up field created headaches for Glory. Picked up a rare yellow card in a friendly for a foul on Fabio Ferreira. Never troubled.
44 – Ethan Ampadu – 6.5
Early head knock cushioned by his impressive dreadlocks. Covered Andy Keogh well and was decent with distribution, not trying anything beyond him. Subbed off after an hour.
21 – Davide Zappacosta – 7
Got forward plenty and was involved in some good interplay which opened up a good first-half chance for Pedro. Shut down most of Glory’s attacking thrusts down their left.
8 – Ross Barkley - 6.5
Flashes of quality during the first half in midfield and had his chances on goal when moved into a more advanced role in the second half but simply couldn't convert. Hit post in 52nd minute with a scuffed shot. Spurned too many chances.
4 – Cesc Fabregas - 7
Pushed out to right-hand side in first half. Well weighted 25th minute lofted ball found Barkley who couldn’t convert. Always chose the right option and classy throughout. Tested Liam Reddy with a 58th minute curler.
5 – Jorginho - 7
Started centrally and was involved throughout before being replaced at the main break. His radar wasn’t always on but looks a lively new signing for Chelsea.
20 – Callum Hudson-Odoi – 7.5
The star of the first half, displaying brilliant skill and lead-up play on the left flank to assist Pedro’s opener. Skinned Djulbic late in the opening 45, ran the length of the field to almost set up another.
