Chelsea: Celebrate their Europa League final win

Chelsea: Celebrate their Europa League final win

Petr Cech: Did brilliantly to tip over Oscar Cardozo's looping volley but could do little to stop the striker's bullet penalty. 8/10.

Cesar Azpilicueta: Silly decision to leave his arm out-stretched in the box, giving the referee no option but to award Benfica their penalty. 6.

Branislav Ivanovic: The least calm of Chelsea's two centre-backs, but excelled at the other end, heading in the winner expertly in injury time. 8.

Gary Cahill: Recovered from a nervous start to lead Chelsea's back four admirably. Always calm under pressure and did just enough to stop Cardozo scoring in the first half. 8.

Ashley Cole: Put in a crucial block to stop Eduardo Salvio after 11 minutes, but otherwise had a relatively quiet night. 7.

David Luiz: Did not take to his midfield role as well as he has done in recent weeks. Passing awry early on. 6.

Frank Lampard: Rattled the bar with three minutes to go and also drew a world-class save from Artur in the first half. 8.

Ramires: Failed to live up to expectations against his old club. Was lucky not to see red after a string of rash challenges, his passing was poor and he was caught offside several times. 6.

Oscar: Chelsea's biggest threat going forward in the first half. Game tarnished by a booking for pulling back on Enzo Perez. 7.

Juan Mata: Two assists from the ever-reliable Spaniard. 7.

Fernando Torres: Superb finish to put Chelsea ahead. Worked hard throughout the game, but spent a lot of time with his back to goal. 8.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
