Chelsea comfortably defeated Lille in their Champions League last-16 clash at Stamford Bridge.

After eight minutes, Kai Havertz headed in Hakim Ziyech’s corner, and Christian Pulisic was the recipient of a fantastic run and cross from N’Golo Kante in the 63rd minute, as the Blues secured a vital first-leg advantage.

Romelu Lukaku was a late substitution, with Havertz providing the primary offensive danger – and the German came close to scoring twice before his early score.

On a positive night for Chelsea and manager Thomas Tuchel, the only drawbacks were injuries to Ziyech and midfielder Mateo Kovacic before of Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley.
