Hello and welcome to football.london‘s live Chelsea coverage on Monday.
Goals from Trevoh Chalobah, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell ensured the win, but the result did not come easy, with a controversial VAR decision to rule out a Werner goal putting a dampener on proceedings, somewhat.
Still, there were many positives for Thomas Tuchel to take away from the game, including the impressive performances of the returning trio of Chilwell, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Additionally, Tuchel’s European Champions go into the international period top of the table after Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with title contenders Man City, leaving the Blues faithful excited.
And while club football may be taking a little break, the transfer rumour mill is still very much active, with plenty of speculation surrounding moves for former Blue Tino Livramento and Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin, as well as the possible sale of Hakim Zieych.
With all this being said, scroll down for the very latest Chelsea-related news from football.london .
