Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

A selection of players returned from World Cup duty for a successful night at Stamford Bridge.

N’Golo Kante, Gary Cahill, Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard received a great reception as they graced Stamford Bridge. Along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who put in an impressive attacking display and was unlucky not to score.

The first piece of action from the game came from Willian in the eighth minute, when Willian sent in a corner to an unmarked Tammy Abraham, who headed the ball just wide of the goal.

Attack shifted to the other end soon after, with Memphis Depay putting in a slick curled effort, only for keeper Marcin Bulka to produce a fine save to deny it.

As the game continued goalless towards the end of the first half, Willian took a free-kick and powered it towards goal, before Lyon keeper Lopes put in an acrobatic save to stop it.

Ten minutes into the second half, Loftus-Cheek made a beautiful turn away from his man, before putting in a dinked effort over Lopes before being deflected from the crossbar. So close!

In the 66th minute, Hazard and Giroud were introduced to huge applause, but neither of them could break through and score. This meant one thing. Penalties!

The keepers were struggling to keep the balls from going into the back of the net, until Rob Green stepped up and saved the 9th goal! Hazard then took his penalty and won it for the Blues!
