Chelsea have taken the lead over BATE at Stamford Bridge through Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Loftus-Cheek was given a rare opportunity to impress by Maurizio Sarri this evening, and has grabbed it with both hands with a goal within the opening two minutes.

The England international found himself with a yard of space in the penalty area following a smart cut-back from Davide Zappacosta, and fired home into the bottom corner.

What a start from the Blues! Just what we needed. Here’s the goal.
