Following the 5-0 hammering of Stoke City and Chelsea`s rise to second place in the Premier League, we asked, who you deemed to be Chelsea`s man-of-the-match. There were five different goal scorers, so there were all kinds of possibilities.

It was a game Chelsea dominated as Mark Hughes focussed his team selection on future games. Chelsea didn`t waste much time getting the scoring underway with Antonio Rudiger grabbing the first goal with less than two minutes gone.

The scoring just continued. In man-of-the-match terms, it was Pedro who came out on top with 29% of the votes cast. Pedro grabbed the third goal, that made the game comfortable for Antonio Conte`s side.

In second place and staking his claim for a more regular place in the starting XI was Danny Drinkwater with 26%, his beautifully timed volley flew into the top right corner of Jack Butlands goal, leaving the keeper stranded.

Antonio Rudiger, who opened the scoring heading in Willian`s cross, grabbed third place with 11% of the votes cast.

Fourth spot went to Davide Zappacosta whose shot, with his wrong foot, sneaked under Butland, as the game neared its conclusion. He received 10% of the votes cast.

In fifth place came a non goal scorer, but someone who maybe should have got himself on the scoresheet. Alvaro Morata polled 9%, he had two one on ones with Butland but failed to convert either. In the reverse fixture Morata grabbed a hat-trick.

Sharing seventh place with 4% each were Thibaut Courtois, Victor Moses and N`golo Kante. They went about their business, quietly and effectively. Courtois had just one save to make. No disrespect to them but they still managed to poll more votes than??

Willian, who, having made two assists, won the penalty, that he scored, and secured man-of-the-match in most neutral people`s eyes, he polled just 3%. According to the people who visit and vote in these polls on this site, there were EIGHT Chelsea players on that football pitch yesterday that were better than Willian. Go figure, because I can`t, answers on a postcard.

No other player received enough votes to secure an actual percentage. Based on those results, our current front page poll will be an interesting one as we continue our search for Chelsea`s best starting XI. With Eden Hazard and Pedro picked, we are looking for our third best attacking midfielder out of Willian, Kenedy and Charly Musonda Jr. Please vote wisely.
