Former Crystal Palace loanee Loftus-Cheek netted an almost identical goal to his Belgian teammate, cutting in onto his right foot and finding the top corner with ease, while England newbie Hudson-Odoi laid on Olivier Giroud for the opener.

Maurizio Sarri has been reluctant to use the Three Lions duo this season – in fact, Wednesday saw Hudson-Odoi make his first start in the Premier League all season – and they showed the Neapolitan exactly what he’s been missing out on since arriving at Stamford Bridge in the summer.
