  • LUKAKU SCORES! It's a great throughball from Kovacic to play Lukaku in on goal, and the forward dummies a shot to get away from Tuanzebe. He cuts back inside before slotting his shot under Steer and into the back of the net for his first goal at Stamford Bridge. 1-0 Chelsea!

  • Second change for Chelsea now, with Havertz making way for Azpilicueta. He'll sit in the right wing-back position, meaning Hudson-Odoi will be moved into a more attacking position.

  • LUKAKU SCORES AGAIN! Azpilicueta has so much space down the right and he plays a lovely ball infield to Lukaku. His first touch is a good one and he gets the shot away quickly, firing it past Steer and in at his near post to make it 3-0 Chelsea!
