Goal : 33′ 0 – 2 Olivier Giroud

Loftus-Cheek shows some good strength in midfield to hold onto the ball, and allows Alonso to run with it down the left.

He curls in an excellent low cross ahead of Giroud who taps in calmly past Bushchan.
Goal : 45′ 0 – 3 Marcos Alonso

Hudson-Odoi assist to make it.
He plays a one-two which brings him off the right wing and into the box, and then lays the goal on a plate as he rolls the ball across the six-yard box for Alonso to slide home.

Goal : 0 – 4 Marcos Alonso
Giroud heads Willian’s free-kick from the right beyond Boyko for his Hat Trick .Defender Burda gets in a token jump to look like he’s trying to clear the ball but he’s nowhere near the Chelsea man who nods into the far corner.
