Chelsea defeated the non-league Chesterfield 5-1 to play in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Thomas Tuchel turned his side, but when Chelsea began pursuing the latest FA Cup, he was still a powerful XI stacked with international ones for the visit of the National League leaders. I sent that.
The eight winners quickly took the lead within six minutes of the opening, and Mateo Kovacic soared before hitting Hakim Ziyech on the right side. Moroccan efforts were thwarted, but the ball fell straight to Timo Werner, who had the simple task of tapping an empty net from just three yards.
12 minutes later Chelsea Callum Hudson Odoy, who doubled the lead, was given too much time and space to cut into his favorite right foot before curling over Scott Loach from 22 yards on the left. I picked up the ball.
Their debut, Lewis Hall, pushed the field up and made Jim Kellerman and Jeff King make mistakes, which quickly turned them into three.
Hall was involved again when Chelsea achieved a 4 before the break. The 33-year-old save was taken over directly by Andreas Christensen, who nodded to the helpless keeper, but the teenager’s efforts from the edge of the box were saved by Roach.
Hakim Ziyech turned from the penalty spot at 5:10 in the second period after Christian Pulisic was knocked down into the box.
Spireites was on the scoresheet with 10 minutes remaining, and Akwasi Asante flicked a long ball into the Kabongozimanga pass. The 25-year-old defeated the man, but when he saw Marcus Bettinelli save the strike at Chelsea’s goal, Asante finished the rebound and drove 5,800 travel fans behind the goal.
After the match, Thomas Tuchel was pleased to see Bruce on his side in a quick start as soon as he set out to book their place in the fourth round draw.
“I think most of the time up to 5-0 was completely OK. Then I fell a bit in all aspects of the game and was a little too open, but the work is done. Everything is good,” he said. I told the BBC.
“We trust the players and we needed to manage the load so that we wouldn’t overload the players in the next four games and the next two weeks. We got off to a good start and the games I decided early. “
Young debut Lewis Hall admitted that he was “really nervous” to find out that he was out for the first time to the club, and Tuhel also had a quiet attitude around the training ground. Regardless, the young man said he deserved his opportunity.
“Did he say a lot in his interview? I’ve never heard him talk so much in training!” Tuhel joked.
“But he deserved to play. He’s a nice guy and very calm. A big chance at Stamford Bridge. He seized the opportunity and was deeply involved in some goals. Happy for him. is.”
Bruce is next to the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against the Spurs, before playing Premier League leader Manchester City next weekend.
“A big schedule. I have a lot to take care of. I have a rare holiday tomorrow and I will concentrate on the Carabao Cup from Monday.”
