Should be pleased with his night's work despite conceding two goals, having thwarted Fernando Torres and Juan Mata on a couple of occasions to keep the scoreline down.
Got forward to support N'Guessan in the first half especially but managed to keep De Bruyne at bay for most of the evening.
Coped well with Chelsea's plethora of attacking talents but did get caught out of possession at times as he raced forward to try to support his team-mates in attack.
Was dealing reasonably well with Fernando Torres until he failed to react as the Spaniard put the Blues in front.
Torres was causing him and the rest of the Swindon back four few problems in the early stages but inevitably as the Spaniard, and Chelsea generally, improved he struggled to contain them.
Sat in front of the back four with the tricky task of dealing with Juan Mata but did a fairly decent job in limiting the Spain playmaker and offering support going forward when he could.
Started on the left and struggled to get into the game but was more of a threat when he moved up top in the second half. Had a headed goal ruled out for offside.
Formed the central midfield trio with Kasim and Pritchard but it was a difficult job with Mata, Ramires, De Bruyne, and Willian all breaking forward at one time or another.
Swindon's most impressive performer. Managed to get a decent couple of attempts in at goal and generally looked tidy on the ball. Could undoubtedly play at a higher level.
Would have liked to have got on the ball more to attack Bertrand but was handled comfortably by the Chelsea left-back. Substituted late on.
Was a willing worker up front and held the ball up fairly well but was given little room to influence the game as Cahill and Luiz kept him at bay. Hooked at half-time.
Chelsea finally have a back-up goalkeeper they can trust. Reliable when rarely called upon against a limited Swindon attack, although distribution was occasionally a little loose.
A fairly quiet night for Ashley Cole's deputy, with Bertrand capably dealing with Nicky Ajose but, much like Azpilicueta, would have liked to have bombed forward and provided further threat in attacking areas.
A comfortable evening for the Brazilian with Swindon providing little threat to the Chelsea goal in the first half especially. Struck one trademark free kick early on and moved into a holding midfield position after John Terry was introduced at half-time.
Seemingly in direct competition with Branislav Ivanovic for that right-back berth and would have undoubtedly liked to have effected the game more going forward. Solid enough defensively although N'Guessan did cause him more problems in the second half.
Dealt easily with the fairly limited threat of Nile Ranger in the first half but was given more to think about in the second half after N'Guessan moved up front. He'll be happy enough with the cleansheet, though.
Was a big chance for Willian to stake a claim for a starting spot ahead of Saturday's meeting with Tottenham but he ultimately failed to deliver. Had two terrific opportunities to open his account for the club in the second half but missed both and generally struggled to impact the game.
K. De Bruyne
Saw little of the ball in the first period but had a fantastic chance early on in the second only to fail to make contact with the ball. Would later sting Foderingham's palms with a powerful effort but he would have hoped to make more of what was a big chance to show what he can do. Hooked for Ba with 12 minutes remaining.
All the pre-match talk was focused on Mata and he will ultimately be disappointed not to have taken the chance to prove to Mourinho that he deserves more game time. Found Torres with a delightful through pass in the first half but his influence waned in the second. Expect Oscar to get the nod on Saturday once again.
M. van Ginkel
Would have been a good opportunity to impress Mourinho in what is likely to be a rare outing but his night was over after just 10 minutes after failing to shake off an early knock. Replaced by Ramires.
Followed up well to convert Chelsea's first after Mata's effort was saved by Foderingham and then produced a delightful piece of skill to turn away from two Swindon defenders and put Ramires through to score the second. Was fairly anonymous in the second half but a productive night nonetheless as he looks to get the nod ahead of Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o at the weekend.
Introduced for Ramires at half-time and, although he initially looked a little shaky as he looked to get up to the pace of the game, was rarely troubled by Swindon's attacking line thereafter.
Replaced Van Ginkel after 10 minutes and scored with a delightful dink over Foderingham but, presumably due to injury, was withdrawn at half-time.
Brought on with 12 minutes remaining and came within a whisker of scoring as he flashed an effort just wide of Foderingham's far post.
