In the second half of the game, the host were able to doubled their lead via a penalty kick in the 52nd minutes, as Anwar El-Ghazi put the ball away from the spot to make it two goals to nil.

In the 70th minutes, Ben Chilwell was able to put one back for the visitor to make it two goals to one at full time, after all efforts put up from both ends to add more to the tally of the day proved abortive.

With the disappointing result of the day, Chelsea have now set an unwanted record with the first goal conceded in the game.

Bertrand Traore is the 25th different player to score against Chelsea in the premier league having played for the Blues in the competition, no team has had more different former players score against them (Tottenham Hotspur, also 25).
