As Frank Lampard ‘s side picked up three points in an emphatic Champions League victory in Russia, Hakim Ziyech scored his first Chelsea goal. When Chelsea returned to goalscoring ways in style, Ziyech, 27, swept in on his first start for the club to add to goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic.
Back-to – back goalless drawings had shown that Lampard had made strides in working out the defense of his side, and while they will face tougher competition than Krasnodar’s Russian new boys, the manager will be pleased that after midfielder Jorginho had missed an early penalty, his attacking wealth had clicked into gear.
Four points from two games is a solid start to their Champions League campaign and Chelsea have now lost only once in 10 games this season, despite their streak of draws.
