The Blues got off to the perfect start when Callum Hudson-Odoi gave them an early lead with a fine finish into the bottom corner.

Ross Barkley made it 2-0 soon after, and even though the Blues struggled to create many chances, they saw out the game.

Chelsea will find out their next opponents this evening when the draw is made just after 7pm.

Willy Caballero

Nothing to do in the first half. A couple of nice, quick passes out to get Chelsea on the break.

Reece James

His crossing was superb in the first half, with Michy Batshuayi not doing enough to get it on target. Some strong defending as well, with another bit of sublime skill.

Wasn’t quite as adventurous in the second half. Holding his position more and defending well when he needed to. 8

Lucky with the penalty that was overturned by VAR. Apart from that, solid in the role and looked comfortable in the first half.

In the second half he was an excellent presence at the back, showing great moments on strength and speed. Good positioning as well. 7

Andreas Christensen

Very secure in the first half, coming out of the defence to win tackles well. Didn’t have much of an issue in the opening 45 minutes.

In the second half he was excellent as well, making sure he won the ball when needed and controlled the defence. 7
