2 Right Decisions Chelsea Manager Made In Today's Match That Made The Team To Score Three Points

Chelsea back to winning ways, although it was not as easy as the scoreline perhaps suggests. Trevoh Chalobah broke the deadlock early on but the Blues then saw goals from Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner ruled out by the linesman and VAR.

James Ward-Prowse equalised from the penalty spot in the second period but was then sent off for a reckless challenge on Jorginho.

In the closing minutes of the game, Werner fired Chelsea ahead and Chilwell added a third to secure all three points.

1. Starting Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku attack partnership

Timo Werner has been backed to thrive alongside Romelu Lukaku by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, after a mixed first season in the Premier League with Chelsea.

Werner's first season in the Premier League was a difficult one for the German managing just six league goals and eight assists across 35 games.

2. Benching non-performing players

Werner who did not see any action from the bench in the Champions League defeat against Juventus starts. Mason Mount is on the bench - surprised he isn't starting despite the injury worries.
