Had the cigar out for much of the match but could do little to keep out Yakubu's header from two yards.
Deployed at right-back rather than centre-back in his first league start, he looked composed at times, but awkward at others.
Confident display by Ashley Cole's young deputy. Looked threatening going forward in the first half and negated the threat of Formica. Equally adept in the second, when he moved up into midfield following a reshuffle.
Athletically headed in Chelsea's opener from open play to register a personal best six league goals for the season. But looked leggy and unconvincing in defence, and was embarrassingly out-jumped by Dann for the Blackburn goal.
A bit dozy at times but handled the power of Yakubu well enough.
Lively and energetic in central midfield but subbed shortly before half-time in what looked like a purely preventative measure, as he jogged to the bench rather than limped towards it.
Came to life only in fits and spurts and was unlucky not to get Chelsea's third when his delicate volleyed lob hit the bar. Moved to right-back for the last 20 minutes.
Scampered around diligently in midfield and showed Chelsea what they could be missing in Munich with the emphatically driven second goal.
Dominated the midfield in the way that he once always did, although if Lowe and Pedersen were his opponents every week, he could play until he was 45.
There was more end product from the forward than there has usually been over the last few months but did not do enough to suggest he should start in Munich. Guilty of missing two sitters in the second half.
Mightily impressive display by the striker in his first Premier League start. Held the ball up well, created opportunities for his colleagues and looked threatening when he ran at the Rovers defence. His lively 53 minutes deserved a goal.
A namesake rather than 'son of', the 21-year-old 'keeper made a string of fine reflex saves in what was a frantically busy assignment.
The 17-year-old right-back equipped himself capably but Chelsea targeted his flank and got a lot of joy.
Had his work cut out trying to stem the threat of Ramires and, then, Sturridge. Defended reaonably but rarely got beyond the halfway line.
Had his hands full holding the worst defence in the league together. Which has pretty much been the story of his season. Comfortably out-jumped Terry to set up Rovers' goal.
His lack of pace was frequently exposed by the pace and fluency of Chelsea's attacks.
As ineffective on the right flank in the second half as he was on the left in the first.
The midfield anchorman found himself out-numbered and out-manoeuvred in the central acres but never lost heart and his energy put some of his team-mates to shame.
Seemed to be under orders to mark Bertrand, his immediate opponent, rather than try and put him under pressure. Withdrawn at half-time.
Ran around in central midfield to little effect and was subbed after 73 minutes.
Had a free role behind Yakubu and his pace and trickery caused problems for Chelsea's back four, particularly in the second half.
Looked comfortable at left-back after replacing Malouda shortly before half-time.
Looked lively after replacing Hutchinson but why was he not tried on the right flank rather than alongside Drogba.
Had a few barnstorming runs after replacing Lukaku but could not produce the farewell goal on what is likely to be his Stamford Bridge goodbye.
