St Marys Chelsea demonstrated his third team, which surprised some of the audience. Sarri`s players were dressed in light blue jerseys and shorts, and the socks were bright orange. The teams did not stop the players continue to demonstrate the excellent shape they have shown since the start of the season. The Londoners had total control from the first minutes.

Eden Hazard found himself in a great position in the eighth minute. He entered the field but his shot was blocked. The ball came to Villian, and after the Brazilian shot and the ricochet the ball hit the top beam.
Chelsea continued to attack, but did not end up with a blow. After 20 minutes, the home side was awarded a penalty.
