The Match which ended 2-0 in favor of Chelsea will mean Chelsea is now 13 matches unbeaten in all competitions since Thomas Tuchel replaces Frank Lampard as Chelsea Coach.

‘The feel that we deserve this win is very important for us. It was a very great performance tonight, and an incredible team effort from the Lads on the pitch and the bench and there in the stands, you could feel we wanted it – we scale through well deserved.’
