Rarely tested, but made a couple of decent saves when he was called upon. Could do little about De Nigris' late strike.
Looked uncertain on occasion in the first half, but in truth Monterrey gave him little to worry about.
Chelsea's first was the result of his trademark attacking intent and awareness, combining with Oscar before playing in Mata. Untroubled defensively.
Highly accomplished on his first start in midfield, beating his man and spraying good passes into Chelsea's creative trio. Against better opponents he will get less space than this, however.
Lost De Nigris several times, and one suspects a more accomplished striker with better service would have enjoyed more success against him and Ivanovic.
The only cause for concern on an otherwise positive day for Chelsea. Corona ran him ragged down the left flank, and the young Spaniard appears to have a lot to learn defensively if he is to become a regular member of this back four.
His touch, flair and vision were sublime at times, even as he did not have to hit top gear. A sensational talent.
John Obi Mikel
Played the simple pass, rarely giving the ball away and enabling Chelsea to maintain control of the midfield.
Destroyed Perez at will, and his burst down the left to set up Torres for Chelsea's second moments after the interval clinched the game.
An encouraging display, even if he cannot hope to face such accommodating opposition every week. Was fortunate to see his sliced effort deflected in off Perez, but played a superb pass into Mata for Chelsea's third. His first touch still fails him a little too often, however.
Top of the Match
Another imperious display. The former Valencia man was at the heart of everything Chelsea did well, including sweeping home the opener on 17 minutes. Will be key to his side's hopes of lifting this trophy on Sunday.
Came on for Mata with 16 minutes left as Chelsea settled for a three-goal margin of victory.
Replaced Luiz on 63 minutes to a rapturous reception from Chelsea fans and locals alike, but had little to do once on the pitch.
Came on for Torres with 11 minutes left and delivered a lively cameo even as the match lacked intensity.
