    Alvaro Morata was ruled offside on a 4th minute chance which could’ve put the hosts in an early bind.

    While Chelsea was predictably in business, it was Town coming close through a laser over goal. And by the half hour mark the match felt very much up for grabs.

    Saying that, it was Kante who made the grab. Seemingly playing in a slightly more advanced role under Maurizio Sarri, he latched onto Willian’s cross and bounced an effort over Ben Hamer.

    Marcos Alonso won a penalty in the 44th minute, as Schindler got his foot on the Spanish back’s foot. Jorginho rolled his spot kick into the goal for 2-0.

    Pedro scored the lone goal of the second half minutes after Eden Hazard subbed into the fray, taking a feed from the Belgian to score his 21st Premier League goal.
