The on-loan Belgian looked extremely confident as he came off his line to claim a number of high balls in the area.
Had a relatively simple night at the back as Torres offered very little in terms of attacking intent. When he did see the ball, he was quick to close him down and put in a challenge.
Continually pushed on down the right but was often tracked by Willian. He put a number of decent crosses into the box and always offered width.
A typically adventurous performance from the Brazilian left-back as he linked up with his team-mates well and crossed impressively.
Was not put under too much pressure on the night but showed good positioning when Chelsea did push forward.
A fully-committed display from the midfielder as he was always ready to pounce on a loose ball inside the Chelsea half. He made runs in behind the defence from deep too.
Patrolled the midfield to good effect and helped keep Atleti moving between the flanks. He narrowly missed the target with the best effort of the first half.
Roamed across the midfield and was always keen to ping the ball in towards the forwards. He showed a great touch but did not create any clear-cut opportunities.
Looked to orchestrate the Atleti attacks with some passes of high quality in midfield. He pulled a great save from Schwarzer with a second-half free kick.
Floated about just behind Costa and did his best to find space between the lines to make the most of his playmaking abilities. He was not afraid to shoot at goal, either.
Played much of the game with his back to goal but had very little input on the evening as Terry and Cahill stuck extremely close to him.
Dealt with Costa's strength and regularly positioned himself in just the right areas, be it to head away danger or cover his full-back.
Mopped up any loose balls and helped protect the defence. He was eager to pick up the ball whenever his side got in possession.
Looked a little bit rusty on his return to the starting line-up and was at times guilty of being a bit too narrow.
A solid night for the Chelsea captain as he dealt with the threat of Costa in an extremely impressive fashion. He limited the striker's role in the game throughout.
Showed a good turn of pace to avoid letting runners in behind him, but at times he was too eager to dive in and unnecessarily left space in wide areas for Atletico to exploit.

The Nigerian sat in front of the defence and did a great job of ensuring that the space between them and the midfield was not exploited by Diego.
The Brazilian was deployed on the right wing and helped protect his side defensively but offered very little in terms of attacking intent.
A tireless performance from the Brazilian as he showed great commitment to chip in defensively and also threaten with his dribbling on the break.
His experience was important in midfield for the Blues but he failed to show any dynamism in midfield. He was perhaps fortunate not to see red following a couple of handballs.
Did not stand out on his return to the Vicente Calderon as he received little supply. His touch let him down at times but he went on some impressive runs.
