Hakim Ziyech (Right winger): 6.5/10
Hakim Ziyech was also one of the best players for Chelsea on Wednesday. He mainly played a central role, but moved to wider positions from time to time. He was crucial in distribution and was the engineer behind many of chances and half-chances created by Chelsea. His link-up with Hudson-Odoi was just brilliant—he was slinging in beautiful through balls for him to catch and the Englishman was happily catching them. Ziyech was the one that passed to Kovacic for that chance late on in the game. There were so many other things he did, and as was the case with Hudson-Odoi, the goal is all that was missing. He was subbed off for Mason Mount in the 82′.
Olivier Giroud (Striker): 4.5/10
I don’t like saying this, and I’m surprised that I am saying this, but Olivier Giroud did not have a good game at all. He should’ve done a lot better in each of the chances he had throughout. His decision making was off all game, he looked clumsy in possession and his link-up play was not on point either, which was very weird to see. Giroud didn’t do much, which was a shame, because he could’ve been vital for the team if he’d had one of his better games. He was subbed off for Tammy Abraham in the 77′.
Kai Havertz (Left winger): 6/10
This wasn’t the best Kai Havertz game ever, but it certainly wasn’t the worst. He looked to have a free role against Wolves, and he was decent. He moved to the wings to link-up with the wingbacks, and his smart movement in between the spaces helped him a lot. He had a couple of half-chances, but none of them truly tested Rui Patricio. First, he made a fantastic run through the defense, and tried to take a shot at the end, but it was comfortable for Patricio. He had one chance to win the game for Chelsea in the last (well, technically second-last) touch of the game where he latched onto the ball from Mount’s corner and took a header, which was headed away by a Wolves defender. But it was definitely better than his previous Premier League games. Hopefully, he gets back to his best.
Tammy Abraham (Striker): N/A
Abraham’s hold-up play looked to be better than Giroud’s on Wednesday, and he made a few decent runs, but apart from that, not a lot to do for the Englishman.
Mason Mount (Right winger): 5.5/10
Mason Mount had a decent cameo off the bench. He was the most involved out of the three substitutions that Tuchel made. It was a like-for-like substitution and Mount had a few good passes, and a few good dribbles, especially that dummy that broke him free from Wolves’ defenders late in the game. He had a few crosses and a few corners, just normal stuff, but he did all of it well.
