A brace from Timo Werner and a goal from Tammy Abraham helped Chelsea to a 3-0 win over Rennes in Champions League action.
Werner has taken Chelsea’s spot kicking duties from Jorginho and he made no mistake with both efforts from 12 yards out.
Rennes had their penalty culprit Dalbert sent off for his two mistakes that led to the Werner penalties and were exposed by the strength of Chelsea – particularly with the extra man.
Edouard Mendy kept a clean sheet against his former club and extended his incredible record between the Chelsea sticks to 540 minutes without conceding a goal. He’s helped Chelsea keep 5 cleans sheets in a row for the first time since 2010.
Frank Lampard’s team are benefitting from the stability at the back and they will be looking to continue their fine run of form this weekend when they host Sheffield United.
